Additional Information 

Gym day is Wednesday. It would be great if children could wear a polo shirt to school to save them from having to button shirts and sort out ties.
The children should have a refillable water bottle every day if possible, please ensure they only bring water.
We visit the school library on Tuesday. We can take a book home for a week and once we have returned it, we can take a different book home.
