Swimming

        

The children are developing their swimming skills with weekly sessions and the staff are very proud of their effort and achievements. Please continue to make sure that your child has the correct clothing and that your child’s clothes have been clearly labelled with their name so they do not become mixed up with others. We must also request that no jewellery (including small stud earrings) is worn on Mondays. Finally, it is a good idea for the first group to bring a healthy snack for eating afterwards as the children can feel very hungry after swimming.

Homework

Homework will be given out every Friday and due in the following Wednesday.

Please encourage all children to read at least three times a week and record this in their reading records.
