Reasons to Celebrate:
Well done to 6T for lovely assembly!
All children, that applied, have been successful in gaining a place on the Bikeability courses which will take place later in the term.
If you have been sent a Bikeabilty consent form via Parent Mail please return to it class teachers. We must have a paper copy signed with an emergency contact number for children to take part.
The Daily Mile
It is now a requirement for children to have an extra 20 minutes of exercise a day in addition to playtimes and PE. Therefore, the whole school will be engaging in the The Daily Mile.
The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.
It is a profoundly simple but effective concept. It’s impact can be transformational – improving not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.
Research has shown that The Daily Mile can even increase attainment in primary school, and parents have reported an increased interest in health and wellbeing from their children after they have started The Daily Mile.
Please ensure children always have a water-proof jacket in school as the weather can be very unpredictable.
Please remind your children that if they go to an after-school club that requires them to wear their P.E kit, that it is returned to school the following day.
If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E, please inform the class teacher directly, send an email or write a note. Otherwise, they will be expected to take part.
PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Friday. Please make sure you bring in your PE kits. While it is still warm, please keep a deodorant in your bag.
Homework diaries Your homework diaries include your new reading records. You are the only year group in the school to be using these special diaries and we hope you find them useful. Diaries will need to be handed in on a Thursday morning.
In terms of reading, we would like you to read every evening. However, you only need to make three or four entries in your diary. Please make sure that each entry is signed by someone at home.
