Remember to have the correct P.E kit in school all half term, as it will be sent home at each holiday to be washed. Long hair must be tied back for P.E lessons. If your child wears trainers with laces, please practise tying laces before bringing them into school - thank you very much.

Phonics

We have recently moved to a new phonics scheme called 'Little Wandle' You can find more information about this here.
