Important Information

This half term we will have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, but try to have your kit in school every day just in case.
Home Learning is set on a Wednesday and is due on the following Monday. The children will be given a slip outlining the task. Advice, guidance and helpful links will be given on the Home Learning slip but if you require additional information please contact Mr Johnson or Miss Ratcliffe.
The children should also read their Reading, Library and Guided Reading books
