Key worker children- PE is on Wednesday and Thursday.

I am delighted that our team of professional coaches will be leading Oak Class's PE lesson every Wednesday afternoon and the Year 6 teaching team will lead the PE lesson every Friday morning.

 

Your child can come dressed to school in their PE kit on a Wednesday and a Friday. It would be a good idea to check the weather forecast so they can dress appropriately. (No football kits allowed.) 

 

For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back for PE and earrings either removed or taped over for safety (tape is supplied by school).
