Blackberry Class PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesday and your child will need a full school PE kit to participate. School PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms/leggings and plimsolls and trainers (outside).
Homework will continue to be given out each Monday and it is expected to be returned to school along with their spelling book on Friday.
Children should be reading at home every day. They should read independently or to someone at home. Please sign their Reading Record book when they have read and ensure they are brought to school every day so they can progress on our reading islands.
