Our other PE lesson will be on a Wednesday and will be striking and fielding and net games.  We will aim to be outside for PE lessons so your child can wear trainers if they wish. PE kits will be sent home to be washed at half term.  Kits and shoes should be named. 

Reading: Children should be listened to read out loud at least 3 times a week and this should be noted in the planner. Please work on asking the children questions about what they have read and how the characters may be feeling and authors intent.
