Read, Write, Inc. – This term, we will start to send home books and/or activities with the children. Parents are encouraged to continue reading at home with their children. Lots of free books can be accessed on the internet/kindle.

Snack Money – From September 2021, we will be asking parents for a £1 donation each week to go towards snack money and we thank parents for their continued support. Payment can be made via the Parent Pay website; please telephone school if you need help with accessing the system.

Forest School – Lessons will be put on hold until one of our members of staff completes her training. More news to follow … watch this space!

P.E. Sessions – please ensure your child has a PE Kit in school (Reception to Year 6) – plain white t-shirt and shorts (preferably black or navy blue) and pumps or trainers. Kits can remain in school for the half term in your child’s locker. Every item of clothing should be labelled please.

P.E. Sessions:      Will be planned on a weekly basis and may differ by day (according to the weather). We will be taking the children outside as long as the weather permits. Once the weather changes, the school hall will be used for lessons.

Nursery children do not have formal P.E. sessions (they have lots of outdoor play instead!)
