See below for a copy of the kit list. 


Whilst your child is at Astley Burf they can wear their own clothes but these must be suitable for moving around and doing PE based activities.

Our PE days are on a Monday and a Friday. 

 Monday the activities will be outdoor PE or swimming. (Letters will be sent home to let you know of the dates that you child is swimming.) This term it is 4H and half of 4OR. 


Friday- Indoor PE


Please make sure that your child comes into school  in their PE kit on their PE days. Any long hair must be tied back and if possible, could earrings be taken out as well. 




Library Books and Reading Records

*Please make sure that Library books and Reading Records are in school every day because we are starting a new initiative called DEAR (Drop Everything And Read). 

*New books will be issued each week, if you have finished reading your book and returned it.

*Each time you read, log the reading with a short note next to the date. This will count towards your certificates! Which class will be on the top of the Reading points chart at half term?
