Please provide your child with only essential resources e.g. reading book and named lunch box (if not having hot meals).

Please provide your child with a named, refillable water bottle that is taken home each day for washing.

We have noticed an increase in children bringing toys from home. We ask that items from home are not brought into school as they can get easily lost or broken.

PE will take place on Tuesday – please send your child to school wearing their PE kit and sport shoes, which they will continue to wear throughout the day.

Supporting your child at home


Reading with your child at least 5 times a week (please write daily in the yellow reading record book). Please read books you have at home or from the library until children begin bringing reading books home.

We will visit the school library on:
Monday – Panda Bears
Friday – Polar Bears
Please return your child’s library book on the day they will be visiting the library so they can take a new one home.
