Spring Term First Half
Wednesday afternoon (Mrs Wray)
• Multi-skills and invasion games
Thursday afternoon (MCFC Coach)
• Football and netball skills Children should come dressed ready for outdoor PE lessons.
Government guidelines remain that PE should be taught outdoors wherever possible. We will endeavour to deliver PE whatever the weather,so please ensure your child brings a fully waterproof coat to school on these days. It may be, on particularly inclement days,that we have to make the decision that it is not safe to do PE outside due to the playground surface being unsafe.
In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime. Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars. School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.
Wider Opportunities in Music
We are extremely excited that the children in Year 4 are able to participate in brass lessons as part of our wider opportunities program. Mr Haslam will be coming into school each Friday 10:45-11:45 and teach the children how to play various brass instruments. School will provide the instruments so there is no need for the children to bring anything in.
I will be sure to keep you updated of their progress!
