What have we been up to this week?

What we will be learning - week beginning 5.06.23

We will remind ourselves about how we walk around the school as we to go into the hall for lunch, Assembly, Hymn Practice and Liturgy.  The children will have opportunities to develop their physical skills by using a variety of equipment such as the climbing frame, bikes, bats and balls, balancing equipment, mud kitchen and building tools. They will use their speaking and listening skills within the home corners and outdoors in the playground, sharing stories with the other children and adults. The children will also have opportunities to be creative and use their imagination with play equipment. 

Please be reminded that at 2.45pm every Thursday, you are invited into class to read a story with your child. 


Please note that children should come into school wearing their PE kit EVERY Tuesday. However, this week, PE will be on Friday so the children should wear their PE kit on Friday instead of Tuesday for this week only.

 This should comprise of red shorts, blue t-shirt and black plimsolls/trainers. Alternatively, they can wear a dark tracksuit (navy, black or dark grey) or buy the school tracksuit with the logo.
