Key Information 


PE will take place on a Mondays and a Wednesdays. In line with school policy, children are  required to bring their PE kit to school and will change before their lesson. We would like PE kits to stay in school and they will be sent home at each holiday. If you would like your child’s PE to come home more frequently please remind them to collect it themselves.

Children cannot wear earrings during PE.  If your child cannot remove earrings themselves, please ensure that they do not wear them to school on Mondays & Wednesdays.  As with all school uniform, please label all of your child’s PE kit to ensure it's safe return to you.

In addition, please ensure children continue to keep a pair of wellies in school to accommodate any outdoor learning, play times or activities on the school field whatever the weather! 


The Read Write Inc. scheme continues in year 1 where reading and phonics is taught daily in the classroom. Reading with your child is the main way you can support their development. Therefore, we ask you to read at least three times a week (preferably daily) and record this in their Reading records. 

 Home Learning 

Your child is expected to read at least three times weekly with an adult at home. Early in the Autumn term your child will also begin to bring home weekly short spelling lists to practice and begin to memorize on a Friday. This is important to aid their spelling in their writing, so please help them to practice these words. Further information will be sent out with the initial list.

Local Church Visit

We all enjoyed a wonderful visit to our local Church to find out what happens when Christians visit the Church to worship. Thank you to Susan for showing us around. We learnt so much!

Shelter Building on the School Field

We had a great time building shelters for out hibernating Hedgehogs on the school field. The weather held for us and we made some spectacular dens which were strong, weatherproof and cosy! Oaklee made a key for their front door and Florence made a fun swing toy for their hedgehog when he wakes up next Spring!

Thank you parents for all the sticks!
