PE

Children will have 1 hour of PE per week on Wednesday. Children must have a full PE kit in school at all times. If the children take their kit home for clubs, it must be returned the next day. Children who do not have the appropriate full kit in school are unable to take part in PE, which is an important part of the curriculum. Also, this term children will have 1 hour of swimming on Thursdays. They will need their kit for swimming on that day. Please ensure all items, including footwear are labelled. This includes: A plain (with or without the Freshwaters logo) white Tshit, Navy blue PE shorts. A navy-blue tracksuit (a hoodie and bottoms). A pair of plimsoles. A spare pair of socks would also be of benefit. Please ensure the children have a pair of trainers in their PE bag, for outdoor PE.

Home Learning

Homework will be given to the children every Friday. Homework is due to be completed and handed in the following Wednesday. Some children may need encouragement and support to complete their homework at this age. Please ensure that if this is the case, you are encouraging your children, but please, do not do the homework for them.

Spellings will be given out every Friday, they are to be kept at home, reviewed daily and not handed in until the following Friday, to ensure that practise can happen daily.

Reading: Children should be encouraged to read daily and at least once every other day with an adult. Reading for just 10-15 minutes per day will have a huge impact on the children’s fluency
