Term 1 2019/ 2020


We are really looking forward to getting to know our Year 6 classes and we know Term 1 will be a busy term!  We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to and would like to make you aware of the following:


PE will be Monday (Outdoor) and Thursday (Indoor) for both classes in Term 1. Sports for this term will be dance and netball.  Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school from Week 1 including a tracksuit as will be getting outside as much as possible.  We politely request that all kit is named as it is so much easier to return to owners.  PE kits will remain in school and will be sent home with the children if the kit has become particularly dirty or wet.
