Swimming, PE and Games
All kit is required to be in on a Monday for 3M, although our sports sessions are Thursday and Friday afternoon if further slots appear in the school we may take up the opportunity to deliver a third PE/Games activity.
- Girls will need a one piece costume, a swimming hat, a towel and a hair bobble for their hair. If the children wear earrings then they must be taken out before they are allowed to swim.
- Boys will require swimming trunks (not shorts) and a towel. If they have longer hair a hat will also be required.
All equipment should be named, if possible, and kept in a named bag which will be kept in the 3M wooden cabinets.
We advise the swimming bag to go home every Friday after your child has swum.
Hats and Verruca socks should be worn if needed but can be bought from the office.
Year 3 have been set a challenge to read as many times in the Spring term.
The children will earn a special certificate depending on how many times they read.
Platinum – 150 times
Gold – 100 times
Silver – 50 times
Bronze – 25 times
Commended – 10 times
Let’s work together to encourage reading!
