Moving on and moving up

Miss Taylor and Mrs Godfrey have two messages to share, both with the current and the upcoming Year 4s.

Firstly, thank you to the current children in Year 4 who have worked extremely hard this year. Thank you for making Miss Athanasis and Miss Taylor's year so enjoyable! We also wanted to say a big thank you to the parents for all of their support throughout their children’s time in Year 4. We wish you well as you move on to Year 5.

Secondly, a message to our upcoming Year 4s. We absolutely loved meeting you on the 'moving up' transition days and are extremely excited about teaching you in September. In the meantime, we hope you all have a lovely holiday and a well deserved rest.

Year Four have PE on a Monday. Swimming lessons will be on a Tuesday beginning on the 13th September. 

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on and hoodies should not be worn. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red). 

Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour.
