PE kits are to stay in school for Outdoor PE on Mondays and Indoor PE on Fridays.

Homework is set every Wednesday with new spellings and children are all given a hard copy in their homework folders to take home. It is due in on Monday morning - please check to ensure you are happy with the standard.

Children are to read for at least 15 minutes per day (I know they usually read for longer) and complete their reading logs daily.
