This half term, outdoor PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon with Mr Rix. On a Wednesday we will be concentrating on football, and on a Friday afternoon we will be doing Multi-skills. Therefore, it is important that children have their PE kits in school at all times.
As ever, homework will be set on a Monday to be handed in the following Monday. Every other week, your child will bring home either their maths workbook or their reading comprehension workbook. We will highlight which activities are to be completed.
Froggy maths will also be tested on a Friday. Please practice with your child throughout the week. Times table knowledge is vital for the maths curriculum.
