Physical Education
P.E. sessions will take place on a Friday. Kits can be left on the child’s peg and taken home to wash as the end of each half term - black shorts, white T-shirt and black pumps. Please ensure that they are all clearly named.

Throughout the half term children can collect 'dojo' points and the child with the most points at the end of each half term will be awarded with a mystery prize.

'Star of the Week' is awarded to a child that has tried hard in all aspects of school, including being kind to others, good work, following instructions etc
