P.E takes place every Friday morning.
Children need black or blue shorts/jogging bottoms and a white t-shirt.
Please ensure you write your child's name in all their clothing.
Children have access to outdoor learning environments every day. Please ensure you provide sensible shoes for running around outside, wellies for exploring puddles and walking on the grass and in the garden and mud kitchen and a coat. In sunny weather a sun hat and sun cream are essential and in the colder weather gloves and hats with your child's name in are essential.
Please do ask a member of staff if your child misplaces an item of clothing.
Every Monday afternoon (RJB) and Thursday afternoon (RDW) your child will get the opportunity to visit the school library and choose a book to take home for the week.
Each week we have a Celebration Assembly with Nursery which parents and carers are invited to attend if they wish. We share what we have been learning, sing songs, announce the Star of the Week for each class and give out other rewards. We will inform you if your child will be receiving the Star of the Week certificate by text message the day before the assembly.
Assemblies are held on a Friday afternoon from 2.40- 3.00pm in the hall.
Every child has a Profile, Super book and Maths book to capture their learning journeys. Your child's profile is always available to view in your child's classroom; please let a member of staff know when you would like to view your child's profile. Your child's learning can also be looked at during parent/teacher meetings, workshops and upon request.
We promote a love of ‘Reading’ in lots of different ways:
