You will need: blue t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and sensible, outside trainers.  Please ensure your child brings a cap or a hat on sunny days and applies sun cream before coming to school.

 

Remember, the values you develop in sport will carry across into your academic work and all that you do in school and outside school.

Strive to be your very best!

We encourage Owls class to think about this question on a daily basis:

How do you demonstrate these values whilst being physically active, when playing competitive sport, during PE lessons and, most importantly of all, in your everyday life?
