Summer Term 2022 Planning Overview:

Once your child is ready, they will be sent home with reading books and reading records.  We ask that you read with your child at least three times a week and fill in their reading diary.  Reading books and diaries should be in school with your child every day.

Occasionally we may send home phonic sounds/tricky words to be practiced alongside their reading.

Your child will need:

Labelled water bottle (your child will be given a free one from school. If lost a charge is made for replacements.)

Reading record returned each day

A School Book Bag to carry their things to and from school. (These are available from the uniform suppliers.)


Black short/jogging bottoms

Plain T-shirt (in their team colour, no logos). We will inform you of your child’s team and the colour t-shirt they will need at the beginning of the Autumn term.

A named PE bag to keep their kit in when it is at school.

Base 5 - Thursday

Base 6 - Thursday

Forest School:

We have a lovely forest school area and like to use this weekly when possible. When we go to Forest School, children will need warm clothes, spare socks, wellington boots and gloves, hats and scarves when the weather turns colder.  School provides waterproof trousers and jackets.

On Forest School & PE days, children can come dressed in the appropriate clothing.

Please label each item of clothing clearly so that it can be easily returned to child if mislaid.
