Class Charter and Weekly Timetable

Our class charter was written using the children’s ideas of how everyone could stay happy and safe in our classroom. Once they were decided the children all signed to agree them.

Holly Class Charter 2021-22

Children should have their book bags in school every day with their reading books and records, sound cards and number cards.

PE is on TUESDAY every week.

On PE days the children should come to school wearing their kits. This should be a white t-shirt, black or navy blue jogging bottoms and suitable pumps for indoor or outdoor PE sessions. Children should always have a jumper/cardigan as we will try to do PE outside as much as possible.
