Your child must come to school in correct P.E. kit on these days. Failure to have the correct kit is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. Please see the school website for more information regarding the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take the earrings out, or cover them with tape, for the lesson. Please remember that Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
Children will be set homework weekly, every Thursday via Class Dojo. They will be given a homework book where they are to record their answers, these will be due back in by the following Wednesday.
We encourage childrent to read with an adult at least three times per week to help build up their vocabulary and comprehension skills.
