This is an overview of this term’s work:
PE and outdoor learning
Kings Cross's PE days are Monday and Wednesday.
PE/Outdoor learning kit should be brought to class on Monday and taken home on Friday to be washed and cleaned. Unfortunately, if your child do not bring in their PE kit into school then they will not be able to participate in PE for that session. As a reminder, can children also not come to school wearing earrings on PE days. Earrings cannot be removed at school as per the risk assessment in order to keep everyone safe.
Children should all have a full PE kit which includes: black shorts/ black tracksuit bottoms (for colder weather), white T-shirt, jumper and a suitable footwear.
