Term 3

 

Welcome hope that you have all had a great break. As the months get colder, please can you make sure that your child has a coat. 

 

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.

Homework

Please read daily at home.

 

PE

 

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

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.
