PE – Wednesday is Gym/Dance and Thursday is games. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school on these days.
Homework is sent out on a regular basis though there is not a set day for any one subject as there is in other classes. This is to try and encourage children to be more organised prior to starting Secondary School!
I look forward to meeting you over the next few weeks and please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to discuss any issue concerning your child.
