Great first day Year 5, well done! Thank you to everyone who brought 'Me' boxes in this morning, we'll work hard to get through them over the coming days.
This morning Mrs Ramsden, our new swimming teacher from Palatine, came to meet the children this morning and talk through what they need to know. Swimming will be on Tuesdays (please see letter you received today). The children will come in their PE kit for the day and will need with them their swimming kit in a separate bag to their school bag. Girls will need a one-piece swimsuit and boys will need swimming trunks (please see photo of acceptable type as baggy swim shorts are not allowed), a towel, swim hat for all girls and boys who have a longer hair style or fringe and goggles if you return the signed goggles letter. The children will not need shampoo or shower gel as they will only have time to rinse and get dressed quickly ready to return to school. Please can the health forms be returned before Friday so they are ready for collection by the swimming teacher. If your child has asthma, inhalers will be taken to the pool by the teachers so please make sure your child has an up to date inhaler in school as soon as possible.
On PE and swimming days earrings will need to be left at home to avoid losing them as children are not allowed to swim or do PE with them in.
