Trying your Best Equals Success
If you Believe you will Achieve




Apple Class - Ms Patel

Mulberry Class - Miss Malcomber

Our topic this term is 'Magical Me'.




Every child has a home learning folder that will be given out every Friday. Inside will be a fun weekly activity to complete with your child, linked to the learning that has taken place that week. The children 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. Later on in the term we will share additional reading books using Bug Club.



Reception have PE on Wednesday.

For the time being, children should come to school dressed in their PE kits. 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.


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 Thursday, 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 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!
