We will also share the book and sounds of the week using Bug Club (see link below for tutorial video). This folder needs to be returned by Tuesday. The children also are given two reading books that should be shared each evening with a comment made in their reading record. These books are changed once a week.

Reception have PE on Thursday.

Children should no longer come to school dressed in PE kits. Children are now asked to bring their PE kit to school, in a named bag, and get changed at school for PE lessons. PE kit should include: black bottoms, a red t-shirt and a pair of plimsolls or trainers. Please ensure your child has no earrings in and that long hair is tied back on this day.

Please ensure your child's name is on all items of clothing.


Spare Clothing

In the event of spoilt clothing, please ensure that children have spare labelled clothing kept at school at all times.


Healthy Schools

Full time nursery and reception children can be provided with a hot lunch or bring in a packed lunch from home. Healthy snacks are provided throughout the day, as well as milk and water for all children.


Reception lunch begins at 11:30am.


Star of the week

On Friday, we select our class 'Star of the Week' with the help of our class bear, who has been carefully watching the children learn. The star of the week will be addressed in a virtual assembly and be given a postcard to take home. They will have their name on our website and newsletter too. 


Beep Beep Day 2021

Early Years had a great time celebrating Beep Beep Day 2021! Beforehand, we spoke about road safety; how we keep safe when crossing the road and how drivers keep themselves and others safe. We made banners and posters and waved them around, chanting as we walked around the school!
