Children must come to school in their P.E kit. Plain white t-shirt, black shorts, school jumper and black pumps must be worn for P.E. Earrings should not be worn on PE days and will need to need to be removed.  Please note that staff are not allowed to assist with the removal of earrings.  

Forest school will be taught by Mrs Gorman every Thursday and will be taught in our outdoor environment and the lesson will focus around a story. Please ensure you provide wellies and a warm coat/ waterproof for our Forest school sessions. 

Please check the school app for alerts and reminders when your child will be taking part in these sessions.

Phonics will be set on our busy things app. Weekly flashcards will be sent home to support the children's sounds of the week. This will need to be completed by the following Friday.


Children will be given their own reading books which will be set to their phonetic ability. Two books will be sent home every Friday, one of these will be familiar to the children to support their confidence & fluency.
