"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
Two pieces of work will be given each week – one literacy and one numeracy. The work will be sent home every Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday at the very latest. If your child experiences any difficulties with the work set please come and see me and we will review it together. Reading books and reading days have been given out; please encourage your child to read a few pages every night.
Reading records have been given out. They are different from other years and have many additional features for you to share with your child. Please could you record a comment on any date that you may have read with your child.
P.E. & Games
Kit – Blue/black shorts and a white top and black pumps for games -- This should be brought in and left in school until the half term break. Football tops are not suitable as they can often cause disruption between children.
Swimming kit - swimming trunks (not baggy shorts) or a one piece swimming costume must be worn. Children will be provided with a swimming hat at their first session, which they must wear every lesson. New hats can be purchased from Sale Leisure Centre. Goggles can be worn but are not necessary. Children must bring their kit and a towel to every lesson and make sure they take it home after each session for drying and cleaning. Ear studs cannot be worn for swimming lessons - children must be able to remove their own before sessions if they are wearing them to school, staff cannot take out or put in ear studs for children.
Football tops are not suitable as they can often cause disruption between children.
Jewellery should not be worn in school for safety reasons. (Studs for pierced ears are acceptable.)
Toys should not be brought into school as they often cause disruption & arguments in class.
All children should wear school uniform clearly labelled. School shoes should be worn, not trainers.
Water bottles are available from the school office (£1). It is important that the children drink plenty of water during the day to keep them hydrated. Please ensure that bottles are taken home each weekend to give them a good clean and eliminate germs.
