Mrs Foreman's class will have indoor PE on Thursday, and outdoor PE on Friday. Mrs Gisevicius’s class will have indoor PE on Monday, and outdoor PE on Friday. Please make sure your child has both indoor and outdoor PE kit in school for the whole week, and that earrings are removed on those days.

Children are expected to read at home every day. Their Reading Challenge should be in school everyday and we log their reads on a  Friday.
