PE lessons

Your child’s PE lesson will be on Friday.

On these days please ensure that your child comes to school in full PE kit, including suitable footwear (trainers or plimsolls). Your child will remain in their PE kit all day then the PE kit will need to be washed ready for their next PE day.


Every Wednesday, unless told otherwise, your child will be going swimming at Arcadia swimming baths in Levenshulme. We will be beginning on Wednesday 15th September.
They will need to come into school wearing their swimming costume under their uniform. If this would be uncomfortable for them they would need to bring in a kit bag.
You will receive more information in a separate letter.


Homework will be set on Class Dojo every Friday. It will be linked to the maths and literacy we are doing that week.

Your child will receive a paper copy of spellings every Monday which they will need to learn for the spelling test on Friday.

Reading books

Reading books will be used as normal and the children will be able to take home reading books and reading records as they wish. When the children have finished their book they will write it in their reading record, bring it back to class and will quiz on Accelerated Reader. Please ensure that books are returned to school and changed weekly.

Many thanks, Miss. Parkinson 🌞
