PE Kit & Outdoor Learning Term 1 2021/2022
Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school when scheduled as of Monday 6th September.
Most classes, but not all, also have Outdoor Learning timetabled- the timetable will vary throughout the year. If this is the case, your child should wear their PE kit but also bring a pair of wellies/ old shoes and waterproofs to school. Most of the time, your child will have a separate PE lesson and Outdoor Learning session within the same day. In order to give sufficient time for parent/ carers to prepare for this, it isn’t an expectation until W/C Monday 4th October 2021. Please note that we do hold a stock of waterproofs and wellies for families that may find the cost prohibitive.
The children in Mangrove Class (Y5) will need to bring their swimming kit each Wednesday this term. Their first session is Wednesday 15th September. In the meantime, they should attend school in their PE kit on Wednesday 8thth September whilst they wait for swimming to start.
