Key information for Autumn

Arrival/collection

Our arrival time each morning is from 8:45am - 9:00am and we leave at 3:10pm.

 

What to bring to school

Children should bring in a water bottle which they will take home each day as well as their packed lunch (if they do not receive a school lunch). These will be kept at/under their desk. They can also bring in their own hand gel if they wish. They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as school provides everything children need.  Children can also bring a healthy snack to have during morning break time.

 

PE days

Our PE days are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Tuesday and Friday, the children should come into school wearing their PE kit and they will remain in their PE kit all day. PE kit consists of white t shirt, black jogging bottoms/purple shorts, purple hoody and trainers.  On Fridays children will need sturdy outdoor shoes/boots suitable for woodland activities.  On Thursday children will need to wear school uniform and bring their swimming kit in a zipped bag.

 

Homework

Homework is over a fortnightly period.

One week children will have a Maths and an English task to complete in their Homework books. These will go home on a Monday, to be returned the following Monday. 

For the alternate week, the children will be asked to work on some Topic-based tasks which will be in a grid format - please see the link below for Topic Homework for Autumn 1. These suggested tasks can be done at home in those alternate weeks when they don’t have their Homework books. 

We encourage you to take photos of any finished tasks and tweet them to us @BishopCEPrimary, send a photo on Class Dojo or bring the finished tasks into school. We will then be able to give verbal feedback and share the work as a class.

They can also bring in their own hand gel if they wish. They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as they will have everything they need at their own desk.

 

PE days

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. On these days, the children should come into school wearing their PE kit. They do not need to bring in their normal school uniform to get changed into, they will just stay in their PE kit all day. As the vast majority of our PE needs to take place outdoors, they should wear a PE t-shirt and a tracksuit/appropriate sports clothing that is suitable for all weather.
