Important Information

We advise that children bring in a set of spare clothes at the beginning of the year that is kept at school.

PE Days:  Thursday

PE kits must consist of either a black school PE top, or a plain black t-shirt with black shorts. Suitable footwear must be worn. Children may wear a plain black tracksuit for outdoor PE.

*Please ensure that all items of clothing (school uniform, PE Kit and coats) are clearly named.

Music Day: Tuesday

Reading: When children are ready for a reading book, this will be sent home with a reading record.

We expect that all children read at home regularly, a minimum of 3 time a week. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday to allow for children to read the same book more than once. This helps them to build confidence and fluency in their reading.

Outdoor Learning: The children have access to the garden all day, every day - come rain or shine! We have all-in-one outdoor, waterproof suits for the children to wear , however we do ask that you provide a pair of wellington boots to be kept at school. 

Home Learning: Learning Logs will be sent home on a Friday. These will include a Phonics task (new sounds/tricky words from Phonics that week) and a curriculum based activity (either an extension of our learning or a preparation activity for new learning). Homework is to be completed by the following Wednesday. 

Tapestry: Tapestry is used to allow you to see the learning that your child is doing at school. You will also be able to upload pictures and observations from home which can be shared at school.

Please see the link below for Tapestry support, or see Miss Veni if you have any questions.
