Tuesday  -Outdoor PE. Fundamental skills

Thursday  – Indoor PE. Dance 

Children are expected to wear their PE kit to school on these days:


Between 2.50pm-3.15pm, key stage one staff will offer post-teach sessions to children in Year 1 and 2. Each staff member will be focusing on a different area of the curriculum. For example; we are currently offering sessions on speed sounds and Maths. During these sessions we will be teaching the children the concepts and skills prior to a lesson. The idea is to give the student a 'preview' of the learning that will allow them to put their knowledge to work during the lesson. Pre-teaching can provide students with more knowledge and confidence when approaching a new topic. This can help to increase engagement and reduce frustration. Your child will receive a letter if they have been invited to these sessions.


Please see Satchel for your child’s homework.
