  • Children will have Forest School with Mrs Cox on a Tuesday afternoon. They will need: an old coat, preferably waterproof; a hat; old jeans/tracksuit bottoms (waterproof if they have them) and wellies, ideally, or old shoes.
  • Children have all been sent home with a reading book and will receive a Reading Diary as soon as we get them in school. Please read with your child as much as possible and sign their diary. There is a box in the classroom for children to put their finished reading books in and then they will receive a new one to take home.

  • The Creative Curriculum homework has been sent home. Please spend time doing these tasks with your child and ensure they are sent back to school on the check point days given.
