Sport and Physical Education
In Key Stage One we expect all the children to be in the correct P.E kit.
This consists of:
OUTDOOR ~ Tracksuit (blue), team polo shirt and trainers (essential).
INDOOR ~ shorts (blue), team polo shirt and trainers for this term as the children need to be in these for skipping.
All the children need a water bottle, as they need regular drinks during P.E lessons and in class too. Please could you make sure your child’s bottle is labelled. The children need to take their bottles home every day.
We hope you have found all this information helpful. Please feel free to come and see a member of Cygnus staff if you have any questions or worries.
We are looking forward to continuing to work with you this term.

Just to keep you updated, the way we teach spellings has changed. We will now teach the children a new spelling rule each week and send these home with the children. This is a whole school approach as we have recently purchased a new spelling scheme. Therefore we won’t be having a traditional spelling test each week as we want to encourage the children to use the spellings in their writing as much as possible. Thank you for your ongoing support.
