PE is on Tuesday morning and Thursday morning. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit - yellow polo top, navy blue shorts/jogging bottoms, long-sleeved navy top, yellow socks and plimsolls/trainers. The children do not need to bring in their school uniform to change into. Please ensure earrings are removed or taped over.


Snack is being provided daily and the children are actively encouraged to eat this, but if there is a particular fruit that your child will only eat, then please provide it in a named bag or container. The children can  bring in a named bottle of water for snack and an additional bottle of squash for lunchtime.
