Our PE days are on Thursdays and Fridays, although changes in timetabling could alter this. If the children have indoor kit and something to keep their arms and legs warm every day, we will be always ready for those ‘just in case’ moments. Thank you for ensuring that the girls have something suitable for keeping their hair tied back and that all children have suitable footwear for outdoors – it really does make a difference.


Please continue to check your child’s book bag daily for letters and other pieces of information.

Homework continues to be given on Monday to be handed in on Thursday; thank you to those of you who play a part in helping your child with this. As usual, reading needs to be ongoing, 5 times per week with a record of what they have read is important.  Many summarise very clearly when they feed back to the class. Again, thank you for your support in this. The children really do benefit.


Finally, I’d like to introduce you to Mrs Crawford, who will be supporting intervention programmes alongside Mrs Hodgson who will continue to work with us in class. She has already made a start and has got to know some of the children.



Yours sincerely,


C. Stirling
