The children will be tested on their spellings every Friday morning. After the spelling test we will write your child's score at the top of their spelling sheet and any incorrect spellings will be highlighted so you can continue to practise them at home.
Your child must have their book bag with their reading book and homework book in school with them everyday.
Swimming Lessons and P.E.
The children will take part in Swimming lessons every Tuesday until half term and P.E. lessons every Wednesday.
The children will need the following items for their swimming lessons:
Girls: a towel, a one-piece swimming costume and swimming cap.
Boys: a towel, swimming trunks (not shorts) and a swimming cap.
The boys must wear proper swimming trunks for safety reasons: swimming shorts are not permitted in the pool. Girls are not allowed to wear earrings so please remove earrings at home to save them getting lost or avoid any difficulties removing them. All children must wear a cap. It would be much appreciated if girls could wear their hair in bobbles so they can be tucked inside the swimming cap easily. Children do not need arm bands or swimming goggles.
Please ensure that they have their full kit in school throughout the term.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Class Two team.
