Year 1 & 2 Class News

Welcome back!

Posted on Monday 07 September 2020 by Mrs Latham

We were all feeling a bit nervous and excited this morning.

It was great to see everyone and the children took all the changes in their stride.

We hope they’re all looking forward to coming back tomorrow!

Wearing PE kit to school – which days?

Posted on Wednesday 02 September 2020 by Mrs Latham

Hopefully you have read the information in the Autumn for all – Key Info Scholes, which also has a link to our uniform policy.

On the days your child has PE, they should come to school in their PE kit. (Track-suit bottoms instead of shorts would be good on colder days. Footwear : black/brown/grey/white flat shoes which are safe to run around in.)

Footwear on PE days could be children’s ‘school shoes’ which are often a ‘trainer’ style anyway, if you want to avoid having to buy 2 pairs of shoes.

Please find below the days each class has allocated PE times, which will be taught outdoors, except in extreme weather.

  • F2 Sunshine and F2 Rainbow (Miss Parling & Mrs Allen-Kelly/Mrs Wilkins) – Wednesday & Friday from week beginning 28 September
  • 1KN (Miss Lowry/Mrs Lake) – Monday & Friday
  • 1,2V (Mrs Latham) – Thursday & Friday
  • 2C (Mr Gathercole) – Monday & Thursday
  • 3,4N (Mrs Wadsworth) – Tuesday & Wednesday
  • 3,4E (Mrs McCormick) – Tuesday & Thursday
  • 3,4O (Mr Catherall) – Monday & Tuesday
  • 5,6S (Mrs Hogarth) – Tuesday & Wednesday
  • 5,6M (Mr Lindsay) – Wednesday & Friday
  • 5,6B (Mr Freeman) – Monday & Friday
