Autumn PE days - Monday and Thursday
All children must have a pair of shorts, a T shirt and a pair of trainers or plimsolls.
Children should also have jogging bottoms and jumpers for outdoor PE in cold weather.
It is also a good idea to keep a spare pair of socks in PE kits.
Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed for health and safety reasons.
Please ensure that you name each part of your uniform - this makes it much easier to return any misplaced items!
Children will be asked to complete mymaths, spelling and reading each week.
