Griffon 2 will go swimming to Brentford Leisure Centre on Friday afternoons with their class teacher and three other members of staff. Their first lesson is on Friday 11th January 2019.

They will all have approximately one hour in the water each week for the whole term (until 5th April 2019). 

For these lessons, children will need to bring a swimsuit or swimming trunks (not baggy shorts), swimming cap, towel and if they would like – goggles. Jewellery (watches, earrings, necklaces etc) must not be worn. Children must not come to school in their swimsuits.

Every child must swim as this is part of the statutory National Curriculum. 

If you would like further information about these swimming lessons, please contact your class teacher or the office team. 

Dates of Project Homelearning:

  •  Home learning Inventions booklet to be handed weekly on a Wednesday.​

Things to remember

P.E is on:

  • Wednesdays for both classes
  • Fridays for Griffon 1 whilst Griffon 2 go swimming 
  1. Remember to have your P.E kits in for both these days (including plimsoles).
  2. Make sure you have leggings or tracksuit bottoms as we will be outside for P.E unless it is raining

School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt. PE kits should be in school at all times. 

Children will also need footwear for PE that is suitable for outdoors and kept in school at all times.

N.B Trainers are to be different than their normal school shoes.

It is very important that the children take their instruments home and practice in order to keep up with the lessons. They should be brought into school every Thursday.
