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.)

PE kit—

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.

Forest School

We have a lovely forest school area and like to use this weekly when possible.  We will notify you of the times we will attend Forest School at the beginning of the Autumn Term.  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 provide waterproof trousers and jackets. 

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