Year Four have PE on a Tuesday and Friday. Swimming lessons will begin on Tuesday 14th September. Children can wear their PE kit to school when swimming. 

For swimming, children should bring swimwear, a towel and goggles (optional). They can change into their swimwear at the pool, so should come to school dressed in their PE kit. 

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.
