PE - They will need to come in with a PE shirt (this is a white t-shirt without a collar), their school jumper/cardigan and either shorts or tracksuit bottoms/leggings. They will also need to wearing trainers on this day.


Home Learning - Home learning will be sent to you half-termly on tapestry under the activities tab. There will be a range of tasks you can complete with your child. Please aim to complete at least one a week then add them to tapestry for us to share in class.


Reading - Your child will receive at least one reading book each week. At first, the books will have no words in them so we encourage you to make up the stories with your child by looking at the pictures. Reading with your child is so important so try to aim to read with every day. Each week add an observation to tapestry about your child’s reading it enables us to see how they are progressing at home. In school, we have a reading incentive where children who are consistently reading at home will collect stickers and certificates. Please encourage this at home and upload every week when you have read with your child.


Dinner Menu - There is a dinner menu attached please discuss with your child what they would like to have in the morning as they will choose their lunch themselves. We have colour-coded boxes for them to add their name to according to their lunch choice. The meat option is the red box, the vegetarian option is the green box, the sandwich option is the yellow box and packed lunch is the blue box.


Spare clothes - Please use the PE bag for spare clothes if you could pack some spare underwear, socks, trousers/skirt and a t-shirt. We will keep this in school until it is needed.
