Every Friday children are asked to wear joggers or old trousers as they take part in Forest School activities in the woodland area.
Snack Money
We ask for a £1 donation for your child's snack every Monday. This covers them for the week. Snack includes toast, fruit, yoghurt, crackers and cheese, crumpets, muffins, crisps, biscuits, cake. They are also given a small bottle of school milk. If your child does not like milk or has an allergy to it then please provide them with a drink each day, e.g. squash.
Forest School Sessions
The children will be taking part in Forest School sessions every other Thursday morning (Coral) and Thursday afternoon (Moonstone). This will involve going to the woodland and learning about looking after the area, exploring for themselves and taking part in directed lessons. Therefore it is vitally important that all children should be properly dressed for the activity. We will be taking part in all weather conditions, as long as it is safe to do so. Waterproof clothing and wellies will be supplied but if you wish your child to have their own, please send them into school. It is also important in hot sunny weather, that your child wear sun cream and a sun hat. Their body should be also covered, as brambles and stingy nettles could cause irritations if your child is not adequately dressed. Please label all clothing and wellies.


Please make sure your child only wears stud earrings to nursery.

Please phone the school if your child is absent (especially if it a long absence) or let a member of staff know when your child returns to school.

Reading Books
When your child recognises most of their letter sounds and are confident at talking about pictures and stories, they will start on the school's reading scheme. They will bring home a reading book which you will have to read to them. You will need to ask your child questions about the pictures/story and encourage them to talk about the characters. They will only be required to read the large words in the first set of books.
