P.E

 

Our P.E. Day is Wednesday.

 

Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit, with their name written in their t-shirt, shorts and pumps.

 

P.E. kits can be purchased from the school office or from the local supermarket.

Please don't allow your child to come to school with earrings in on the day of PE.

Homework

Assessment 

 

Your child will be assessed throughout the year. This is so that your child is challenged and enjoys the activities set for him/her.

 

We use age related expectations to record your child's achievements. 

 

We expect your child to be 'on track' to reach the end of year age related expectations. However, this doesn't always go to plan, sometimes children need a little support. If this is the case, there are interventions that support and direct children so that they can achieve to the best of their abilities.

 

We will report to you three times a year (Autumn Parent's Evening, Spring Parent's Evening and Summer Reports). 

World Book Day

 

The children worked with modelling clay to create their own Iron Giant after listening to and reading Ted Hughes' The Iron Man.

 

The children also experimented with magnets and discovered that some objects and materials allow the magnetic force to travel through it.
