PE:

https://www.schoolwearforless.com/uploaded_files/bundle_images/swfl%20pe%20kit%20whnana.jpgOnce a week on a Friday, the children will take part in a PE lesson in the school hall or on the playground. This may take the form of dance, games or gymnastics. Children are encouraged to get dressed and undressed for PE independently. If your child has pierced ears then please make sure that earrings are removed on PE days (Friday). It really is important to name all items of your child’s PE kit, including plimsolls. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in a bag kept on their peg.

Reading at home:

Your child will bring home a reading book that is appropriate to their level of development. Initially, children may bring home a reading book that does not contain words. These books are essential for helping children to develop their story telling skills and understand how a story is structured. Children will then bring home books to consolidate the skills being taught in phonics sessions. Please read at home with your child as often as possible, it really helps them to develop their skills and confidence in reading. Please sign your child’s reading diary 3 to 5 times per week.

Welly Wednesday:

Every Wednesday, the children will go outside to take part in some outdoor learning. Please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies in school which are named. Children will need to bring outdoor appropriate clothes for a Wednesday afternoon, which they will then go home in at the end of the day. It is important that all of the items are named.
