Each half term, we ask children to learn a set of KIRFS (key instant recall facts). Please spend time at home working with your child so that they are confident with these facts. 

 

P.E
Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday. We will be continuing to take part in The Golden Mile at various points during the week, therefore trainers are required in school each day.

We have our library day on a Tuesday. Your child will be able to choose a book, take it home and read for that week.
