P.E. & Games

PE lessons (indoor) in Class 6 will be on a Monday afternoon. Games lessons (outside) will be on a Thursday afternoon. For PE lessons the children need a plain white t-shirt and black shorts. Bare feet are fine for PE although black pumps are preferred to avoid any injury. An outdoor kit is required for Games lessons, which should include a warm pair of joggers or a track suit, T shirt, jumper plus trainers. To avoid your child missing Games it is advisable that they keep their kit in their locker during the week.                                                                                                                                                        Could you please ensure that your child’s kit is named as there are often unclaimed items in the classroom.   

Reading

Your child bring home a reading book and reading record every day to share with you. We will ensure that your child is heard read at least once a week by a teacher or a teaching assistant. As part of their homework children are asked to read each evening to an adult (House points will be awarded). In order to help us monitor your child’s reading progress could you please continue to write a comment in their reading logbook, ensuring you also include the date. Reading is not only about the completion of books and moving through the scheme, but also about your child’s understanding. Please do not read a book a night with your child, read no more than 15 pages at any one time. After this discuss the text/story with your child. This will help them to think about what they have read and will also show you that they have understood the content. This is vital to enhance your child’s reading ability.
