Our PE day is on Friday afternoons.
Please ensure your child has their P.E pumps and kit in school. These will be kept in school and sent home for washing at the end of each half term. If your child has earrings, they should be removed for PE days. Staff in school are not permitted to do this.
We expect all children to wear full school uniform every day.
Boys - Black or grey trousers, white polo shirt and a blue sweatshirt
Girls – Black or navy dress or skirt, white polo shirt, blue checked dress, blue sweatshirt or cardigan (navy for Y6). Girls can wear leggings or trousers.
Shoes - This includes plain black school shoes/boots with a sensible heel, not trainers and no logos. If children have a problem with their usual school shoes, they wear their black school pumps whilst in school.
Names - Please ensure that all items of clothing are named – then they be returned to your child if the items become lost.
Jewellery - Jewellery is not allowed in school expect for a small pair of stud earrings and a watch. For PE lessons, the earrings must be covered over with plasters (provided by the parent) or removed. For swimming lessons earrings must be removed. The children must be able to remove them themselves. Please keep all other jewellery at home at all times for safety purposes. If it has to be taken from a child, it could get lost in school.
Headscarves – girls can choose to wear a headscarf if they wish to. These should be plain black, blue or white and should have no decorations, and must not be fastened by pins. Ideally they should not be longer than shoulder length. These must be removed for PE.
Homework will be sent home on a Thursday and will be expected back in school by the following Tuesday. Children are not expected to spend more than 10 minutes on each task. We will be sending home Maths homework, English homework and talk homework.
Additional tasks to support learning are available too, should your child want to spend a little longer learning at home. This will be available via Times Table Rockstars, MyMaths, Spag.com, Bug Club, Purple mash and also some children will have access to Maths Whizz. (Click on each one for a link to the sites)
All children are expected to read to an adult as often as possible but atleast once a week. Please date and sign the reading diary when your child has read at home. This is imperative if we are to help our children build their reading comprehension and reading stamina in general.
Reading books and diaries should be available in school every day so that we can also hear your child read.
Children are to bring a reusable water bottle to use each day, to help keep them hydrated. Please make sure these are only filled with water and are clearly labelled with your child’s name. These can be refilled with water throughout the day if needed. Water bottles can also be purchased from Mrs Iqbal in the school office.
You will find the meet the teacher video, along with a powerpoint at the bottom of this page.
This video is in English and Urdu.
I am sure we will have a fantastic year working together.
