Books are issued for two weeks at a time but can be returned earlier. If your child wishes to keep a book for longer than two weeks, please send it in to school and your child can place it in the library box with a post-it note so that it can be renewed.
Children should come to school in their PE kits on a Monday and Wednesday. Children should wear their colour T-shirt of the planet group they're in with blue shorts and trainers. Plain blue, black, or grey tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a similar sweatshirt (no logos please) should be worn as the weather becomes colder. If you prefer, your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan.
In computing this half term we are creating an interactive poster using eyejack technology.
