PE days
The PE/Games timetable for Cherry and Chestnut classes:
Tuesday - outdoor games

PE Kit
 Please can you ensure that your child comes to school with a named PE kit on the above days. This includes the following:
* A white t-shirt
* Navy blue shorts
* Socks
* Navy blue tracksuit
* Sports trainers that provide full support (no fashion brands please)  

A simple named bag with a draw string is a convenient way of carrying and storing PE clothing.
