Times tables will be tested on Monday, Tuesday and Friday.

TARGETS AND REWARDS

Our class target is to complete our class jobs (that we have chosen ourselves) independently, promptly and with enthusiasm.

Our class target is for a DVD afternoon with Pyjamas, cuddly toys, blankets and cushions.

PE IN CHESTNUTS

Please make sure that you have your PE kit in school on Wednesday and Friday. Ripponden PE kit consists of black shorts, red polo shirt and black pumps. You will also need trainers for outdoor games. If the weather is colder you can also wear jogging bottoms and/or fleece/tracksuit. It is also advisable that children have a spare pair of socks and a plastic bag for wet trainers/clothes. Long hair must be tied back so please ensure that children have hair ties where necessary.

All jewellery must be removed for PE and swimming, including earrings so please wait until the summer holiday to have ears pierced.

Swimming will begin after February half-term and more information will be given then.
