Health & Wellbeing Learning Leaflet
Information for Parents
Term 4 2016
Information for All – As it is the summer term and (hopefully) the weather will be getting a bit better I would like to have as many PE sessions outdoors as possible. Therefore could I please ask if children could have an extra pair of gym shoes/trainers that are suitable for wearing outdoors – these can just be kept in their gym bags. When it starts getting warmer and the sun comes out could I also ask that children have a labeled bottle of sun cream in their gym bags as well.
