Children will walk to the pen at home time to be collected. Please be patient and wait until your child is in the line before coming forward to collect. If you need to speak to your child's teacher at the end of the day, please wait until all children have been dismissed, before you approach the teacher. Thank you for your support in this matter.
Children are encouraged to wear school uniform at all times and can be purchased from the school supplier – order forms are available from the office.
Your child will either be having school dinners or packed lunch from home. Please see the office if you are having dinners to set up your parent account to choose a meal option and pay online. Please label lunch boxes and drinks.
Please send £1 snack money to school in an envelope labelled with your child’s name every Monday. This will cover their daily snack. The children have a wide variety of snack to choose from each day, e.g. toast, crumpets, bananas, apples, oranges, kiwi fruit, melon, grapes, etc. Any leftover money goes towards cooking sessions in class.
Milk Your child will be entitled to a free carton of milk every afternoon.
P.E. will take place every Wednesday afternoon.Your child will need a P.E. kit that is to remain in school for the half term, and will only be sent home when in need of a wash. Your child will need a pair of shorts, T-shirt and a pair of trainers, clearly labelled with their name. P.E. kits should be sent to school in a bag with your child’s name on and will be kept on their peg.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT ALL P.E. KIT HAS YOUR CHILD'S NAME ON IT
Your child will need a pair of wellies that can be kept in school. Again these need to be clearly labelled and kept in a bag so they can hang on their pegs. Wellies are essential, as we take part in Forest School activities on a regular basis. We have school waterproof suits that your child can wear in wet weather conditions.
Forest School will be every Monday afternoon.
Phonics - Read, Write Inc.
The children learn their letter sounds through the Read, Write Inc scheme. Information sheets to support this will be sent home. Please help your child to learn their letter sounds at home as well as in school and encourage them to identify objects beginning with the sounds, e.g. s – snake, sausage.
Children will be encouraged to hold and use pencils and other writing implements correctly. They will start by overwriting patterns and when ready will move onto forming letters.
Please help your child learn to write their name correctly.
Your child will start to learn to count, recognise and write numbers 1-10 and when confident will move onto 1-20 then 1-100. Please encourage your child to count objects at home and learn to recognise and write their numbers.
