PE

PE is a core subject and we especially take advantage of this at Wrawby. With every attempt to make learning active and engaging, we like to promote a positive and healthy lifestyle at any opportutnity. Please could children bring their PE kits on a Monday and take them home on a Friday. The children will receive 3 PE lessons a week; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, but sometimes we like to mix things up...and it's always good to be prepared! laugh
