Key Information

PE is every Monday and Friday.

Our Smokey Row day is Wednesday but as we have so much learning to cover in KS2, we will unfortunately not be able to visit every week. We will go as much as we can and I will warn the children the week before.

Spelling tests is every Friday morning.

Cracking times tables is every Monday and Friday.

Swimming takes place every Thursday morning.



Best wishes,
