Children can come to school and remain in their PE kits all day on the days they have PE. 

Please ensure that they are wearing correct kit, that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed. If your child is doing gymnastics, they will need to wear or bring shorts.


We will be focusing on phonics sounds that we are learning in our daily phonics sessions, the Year 1 and 2 common exception words and spellings rules from our SPaG lessons. Please encourage your child to practise these at home and this can be written in their home school diary. The children will also have chance to practise these spellings when they first come into school in the morning. They will have a spelling quiz each week on a Friday.
