Uniform/PE Kits
Please can you make sure that all your child's belongs such as uniform, jumper, water bottle to PE Kit are labelled before school starts as this will help us find the owners quickly if anything gets lost throughout the school day. Thank you
 
Snacks
If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please ensure that it is fruit or vegetable based as we are a healthy school and would like to promote this. 
 
General
Children are to be collected from the MUGA at 3.20pm.
If it is raining the children should be collected from the main playground entrance. 
We encourage the children to bring in items related to our topic for show and tell every Friday for both classes. This is not on a rota basis and children are welcome to bring something each week.
 
Water bottles
These must be brought into school daily for we believe it to be a great support to growing minds! There are now a lot of children who tend to forget their bottles and unfortunately we do not have the time in class or adult support to continually fill up jugs.
 
PE Kit
Children will need their full PE kits on a Wednesday & Thursday for Squirrels and a Tuesday & Thursday for Badgers. If children do not have the correct kit they will be unable to take part in the activities.   If children cannot participate during a PE lesson, please can you kindly send an email or note notifying your class teacher.  Thank you.
 
Reading books
The children will now move over to the school's Accelerated Reader programme. This works slightly differently to the Oxford Reading Tree and so all children will need to be reassessed based on this scheme.  
 
Tissues
We would be very grateful for any donations of tissues for runny noses. Many thanks.
