Useful Information

Our PE day will remain on Friday for this term. Please can you ensure children come to school in their PE kit. It is essential that the children come to school in suitable clothing for all weathers, this allows us to do PE outside. With the weather getting warmer, we will try to be outside as much as possible.


Our library trolley day is on Tuesdays this half term. Remember to remind the children to bring their library books to school on this day, in order to change their book. 


Our spelling test will take place on Monday whilst we have laptops for our computing session. We will be testing the children on their spellings through spelling shed, this means the children will need to be familiar with how to use the platform.
