Homework

If your child has not returned their completed homework by Wednesday morning, they will attend homework club on a Wednesday lunchtime. Pages to complete will be posted on the website. Alternative weeks of Maths and English.

P.E.

Children must come to school in their school P.E. kit of plain white t-shirt, black shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms and plain white or black trainers.

Bookshop

Your child can bring money in to buy a book. They can bring a small amount in each week to help them save towards buying one. They don’t need to bring the full amount every week.

In Owls we encourage the children to be as independent as possible. It is their responsibility to ensure they take their books and homework out of their bags and place them into the correct baskets. If your child does not complete or return their homework they will miss their Golden Time reward on a Friday afternoon.

Please check PING for regular updates and information.

Thanks

Mrs Short
