Mrs Campbell and Mrs Hussain warmly welcome you to a new school year. This year, the children will have plenty of opportunities to show you all the fantastic learning they will be doing in and out of school.
Is it kind? Is it safe? Is it my best?
Children should not be bringing backpacks into school as we do not have the room to store them safely. Children can bring a reading book bag which is available from Mrs Iqbal in the school office.
P.E is every other Tuesday
P.E takes place every other Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure children have their P.E kits in school.
P.E kit reminder:
* Black pumps (no trainers).
* Black shorts (girls are allowed to wear black leggings).
* Red T- shirt.
If they are wearing earrings and can not remove them, then they must be covered with plasters or tape. Please send your child to school with a water bottle.This should be a clear bottle with your child's name on and should only be water.
Please ensure that school is kept up-to-date with medical/dietary requirements and photographic permissions.
Swimming takes place on alternate Mondays starting 6th September. Please ensure that the children have their kit and a towel. Girls should also have their hair tied back and have a swimming cap. It is helpful if all jewellery is removed and left at home on swimming days.
Reading books- Children should only bring their book bags to school on Friday as this will be the day they get changed. The children will receive two reading books. One that will match their reading level and one they choose to read for pleasure. Please ensure you sign their reading diary so we know they have read at home and are ready to change their book.
Reading for pleasure bookmarks will be checked every Friday. You child can complete 3 activities a week. Once all the tasks are done, the next bookmark and a certificate will be awarded. You can find the reading bookmarks on the Pupil Information tab. The tasks are age related and are not too time consuming but must be completed to a good standard.
At the bottom of the web page, you can access the timetables award to help your child achieve the award.
We have continued with the times table awards this year but these will take place in class. The children that have achieve the award will be announced during assembly on Fridays.
