Reminders

As the weather is getting colder please make sure the children bring an appropriate PE kit into school. Some of the PE sessions will take place outside so tracksuit bottoms and a PE jumper would be a good addition to the children’s PE bag.

Children will take part in PE on a Monday and every other Thursday.

If your child takes part in any lunchtime clubs please make sure they have a kit to change into.
