3 – General Information
Children in 3IH and 3SDS have PE on a Wednesday. Children must wear a full Malvern Primary School P.E uniform. This includes:
White T-shirt (plain white or white with Malvern badge)
- Green shorts
- Black / grey pumps
Children should have their P.E kit in school everyday. Both classes might squeeze in a second PE lesson sometime during the week if the timetable permits..
Reading and Homework
Try to encourage your child to read 4 times a week (they need only be 10 minutes sessions if your child becomes tired). Please try to make a comment about your child’s reading. Journals should be brought in everyday, even if the children haven’t had a chance to read the night before.
Children will be given spellings and tables tests on a Friday. They will practice these during the week in preparation for their test the following week. Other topic based homework will be handed out half termly.
