R.E - Special ways of living. This will involve the children discussing the individual way they live. We will discuss relevant bible stories and explore how Christians include the church in their lives. We are hoping to arrange a trip to the Church with Reverend Tim – details will follow. Then we will explore Buddhism by looking at the life of a child monk in Thailand.
P.E - Our P.E day continues to be on Friday. The children will be taught athletics and ball games ahead of sports day - moving onto cricket and tennis in the second half of term. A reminder that indoor kit comprises blue shorts, a white t-shirt and black plimsolls. An outdoor kit is still important as we cannot rely on the weather so please include jogging bottoms and top. Trainers or plimsolls may be worn outdoors. Please label your child’s kit as well as their school uniform. It is important that P.E kit stays in school so that it can be used if your child should need a change of clothes for any reason. For health and safety reasons, long hair must be tied back. Please ensure that earrings are removed on PE days. Local Authority Health and Safety states that children cannot participate in PE activities with them in and P.E is a vital part of your child’s learning.
Swimming - The whole school is excited about the commencing of swimming – Year 2 will be the first to use the pool as their swimming afternoon is Monday, so please make sure that your child has suitable kit, including shorts for boys and swimming costumes for girls (no bikinis please) and a swimming cap and towel. Goggles are optional, but should be clearly labelled with name and year group. All students must remove their own earrings for these sessions
Water Bottles - Children should be provided with water bottles, which they will have access to throughout the day. Sports type lids are preferable, as there is less potential for spillage. Only plain water should be provided.
We are in the process of arranging a very special end of year treat for the children – details to follow shortly.
