PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children must have a school PE uniform. This comprises of a Livingstone t-shirt, dark shorts or tracksuit bottoms. Anyother sportswear is discouraged - we want the children to have pride in our school, particularly if they represent us at sporting events. If there is any reason why you cannot get a school PE kit, please speak to us and we will try to help.
Spellings are handed out on Friday and tested on the following Friday.
Children will have homework 3 x a week up until Christmas. Homework will be set on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. (4 pages Monday and Wednesday, 6 on a Friday). All homework is linked to preparation for SATs.

Pencil cases are permitted, but please make sure all items are labelled.
