Learning log activities will always support our learning in class and will be set on a Friday. Children are expected to return their homework by the following Wednesday.
This term, Physical Education takes place every Friday morning. Please ensure that your child has a full kit with them in school (White T shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear). P.E. kits need to be left in school every day and can be taken home at the end of the week or every half term to be washed.
