Happy New Year from the P.E. team. Lessons are back in full swing and this half term our topics are Gymnastics and Hockey. The children are building on the skills taught last year as well as developing awareness of new concepts.

Please can we remind parents that P.E. is a curriculum requirement and that children are expected to participate fully when in school and should have correct P.E. kit. We advise you to send your child in with it on a Monday and then they can bring it back home on a Friday. As the weather is cold please ensure your child is dressed appropriately with a jumper, hat and thermals, if necessary.

Spring Term Clubs

Thank you to all those that have returned their club forms. Clubs will begin the week commencing 27th January. Your child will receive an acceptance slip if they have been given a place in a club and we will endeavour to allocate these as fairly as possible. If you are unsure if your child is in a club, their class teacher will have a register and is able to inform you. A reminder that morning clubs begin at 8am and after-school clubs finish at 4.20pm.

Year 4/5 Swimming

This month, as part of the P.E. curriculum, Year 4 and 5 have begun their swimming lessons on Wednesdays. The children will be learning about building water confidence, different strokes as well as water safety. If your child is taking part in these sessions please ensure they have a swimming costume or trunks, towel and goggles. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak with one of us.
