A Few Reminders:

PE: Children have PE every Monday and Tuesday this half term. Children should come dressed in their PE kit on these days. 

Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time.  Please ensure your child’s name is on their bottle. 

Snack: If you wish to send in a snack, please make sure it is healthy - no chocolate, crisps or sweets. We are a nut free school. Snack can also be purchased from the school kitchen using credit on your child’s dinner money account.
