Resources and Equipment
PE is an essential part of the curriculum. It develops team-work, coordination and a healthy life style. The children will take part in two hours (+) of PE a week so it is vital that they have their kit in school all week. Understandably their kits need to be washed but should always be returned to school the next day. If your child takes part in an after school sports club or other sporting event the expectation is still that their kit is in school. Missing kits will be taken note of. If they are unable to find a part of their kit please replace with a suitable item until they either find it or it has been replaced.
If your child needs to miss a PE lesson please let me know in writing, explaining the reasons.
The children are not expected to have their own stationery, the school does supply pencils, colouring pencils, rulers, rubbers, sharpeners etc however many children like to bring in their own pencil case. Many of their pencil cases have to be a decent size to be able to sit on their tables. Useful items to have in their case would include a pencil, colouring pencils, sharpener, ruler, rubber and some felt tips. No biros or writing pens are needed in Class 2 and will not be used. Gel pens can be used in their own free time/Golden Time.
