We hope that you have all had a great break. As the months become warmer,  please ensure your child brings a sunhat. Children should come to school with sun cream already applied on hot days. Please make sure all items are clearly labelled with your child's name. 


Please continue to ensure your child brings minimal possessions into school.  Please can you continue to make sure that your child has a coat that your child has their name on everything so that they are easy to find. Please also continue to ensure your child brings minimal possessions into school – if it does not fit in their drawer it is too big to bring into school.


A quick reminder to make sure your child has a water bottle with them every day.


Please read daily at home.

In the run up to SATs, it is very important and beneficial that you aim to read at home 5 times a week, as this will support your child's progress. 





Children will have PE on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure children come to school in their Bitham Brook PE kit on these days. 


Monday- Cricket

Tuesday- Cricket

Thursday- Dance


When the children have PE, they should continue to wear their Bitham Brook PE kit into school with the school jumper over the top (if weather conditions require a jumper).  Please note the Bitham Brook PE kit is a plain white t-shirt and black shorts/leggings/tracksuit with daps/trainers.  Other sports clothing is not acceptable as it is important that, as a school, we have pride in our appearance.
