Purple Class Homework rules
We aim to check reading books every day, whether your child has read their book or not, please bring it in so we can read with them in school.
PE is every Friday, please leave PE kits in school where possible and we will send them home at the end of each term.
Each child in Purple Class will be taken to our school library on a Tuesday and will able to choose a book to keep in their tray.
Year 2 SATs
The Year 2s will be doing their SATs in the middle of May. The children will be tested on their Maths and English skills. Please be reassured that we deliver these tests in such a way as to ensure it is not stressful for the children; if you have any questions please ask.
To ensure a smooth transition at the beginning of the day there will be a member of staff on the door to address any concerns. If you would like to speak to a member of staff at the end of the day please wait until all the children have been collected to ensure all children are delivered to parents safely. If you feel you would like to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Smith, please do so at the school office.
