Key information


Please ensure you have your full PE kit in school for our fanatstic lessons.

You can leave your PE kit in your locker until half term and we will then send it home to be washed. 


Please make sure your child has their book bag and a named water bottle in school every day. 

We will read with your child once a week, but your bag is useful to take letters home in. Reading books can be changed when you have completed the book. We ask that parents sign the white reading booklet to say they have finished the book. We will be encouraging your child to be independent and place their book to be changed in our reading basket. 


We would like to utilise the outdoor spaces in the school, even if it is wet under foot,

so please ensure your child has wellington boots and a waterproof coat in school - we can't use these until the majority children have them in school. Thank You.
