Important information -


PE - PE will take place on a  Tuesday afternoon.  Y4 will have swimming lessons on a Tuesday Afternoons until February.  Can we ask that all children have the required PE kit in school. It is really important to have pumps and trainers in school, depending on the weather. For outdoor PE on Tuesday's dark sports pants and jumpers can be worn, trainers can also be worn.


Homework and spellings - this will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Friday.  It is vital the children attempt their homework, particularly spelling as it will aid their learning throughout the year.


Reading -

We place a great emphasis on reading at St Laurence’s Primary School and feel it is very important that the children read every night. Reading record books should be signed by parents three times in a week to indicate the pages read. On Fridays,  reading books will be checked, so books along with records must be in on this day.

In topic we are learning about ancient Greek Olympics. We are planning an ancient Greek Olympics games for the Year 2 children. Some of the class went out to do some gardening with Mr and Mrs Beardmore and got to dig the roots out.


Some of us dug really big roots out and they were very prickly. Only if we had 

gloves on could we carry the roots.
