Important Information

Please make sure your child has water in their school bottle, we do not have squash in water bottles in class and ensure they have fruit or a cereal type bar for afternoon snack, no chocolate and no nuts as we are a nut free school, thank you.

Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies at school with their name in, as we will be taking part in outdoor learning sessions and sometimes it will be muddy and wet!

PE lessons will be on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday mornings. Please ensure your child has a named PE kit including t-shirt, shorts, jogging bottoms and jumper for the colder weather, thank you.
Please note: If your child wears earrings, they must be taken out, or covered with plasters or tape on PE days to ensure their safety and the safety of other pupils.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Friday, allowing for a week to complete. The spellings will also be given out with the homework for your child to practice.
