At St Peter’s the PE kit is a plain white or green t-shirt with either a pair of black or green shorts. In the winter, the children are more than welcome to wear a pair of plain black or green jogging bottoms and tracksuit top. Please ensure the clothing is loose and the children can move freely. They should not include large logos. Football kits cannot be worn. P.E will take place on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Monday will usually be indoor PE and Friday will usually be outdoor PE, weather permitting.
Every other week children will be taking part in outdoor learning, as the colder weather approaches it would be a good idea to send in some wellington boots.
Please be prompt as otherwise children miss their morning activities.
Children are expected to read at home with you every night. Please let us know how this is going by filling in their reading records. These will also be checked on a Wednesday.
PE kits must come into school every Monday.
Homework is expected in on Wednesdays.
All children should be coming in with a book bag and a water bottle.
Polite notice, we do not need rucksacks in Year 1. They are currently taking up alot of space which we do not have. Save them for year 2.
