Shoes on field

In PE we don’t need to wear different shoes but we have to for playing football

If it’s dry they can wear their usual shoes - if it’s wet then spare shoes should be worn for PE too.

Girls football

The girls have two days to play but the boys only one.

We’ll trial it and see how popular it is. We would do the same for a sport that we wanted to encourage more boys into.

Trick Box

Can we have a Trick Box day? Can we put Trick Box into our class worship?

Trick Box folder for the lunchtime playground.

Mr Gardner to create a folder for use at lunchtimes.

Class Worship should really be for worshipping, not Trick Box.
