General Reminders

Water Bottles

Please send your child to Reception with a labelled water bottle, filled only with WATER. We can refill them if needed throughout the day, but will send them home every night to be washed.


Children have a sports coach every Tuesday morning from 9.30 -10.30 am. This will support the children in their physical development. Please ensure they wear the appropriate P.E. kit on a Tuesday. (It can be worn all day) 

Coats and Wellies

Send your child to school with a waterproof coat and you can leave a labelled pair of wellies in the outdoor classroom. We go outside in all weathers to learn and explore!

You can send us a message on Class Dojo or speak to us directly, if you have any worries or concerns. We want to work together in partnership to ensure your child is happy at school and is making good progress.

Snack Fund

We ask for £5 for the half-term, to be brought in an envelope with your child's name.  The fund goes toward paying for special celebration snacks (EYFS are proud to celebrate all special occasions - Chinese New Year, Divali, Christmas, Pancake Tuesday, Easter - in fact most celebrations that are reflected in our multi-cultural society - and what better way than to do it through sharing food, music and times to be together).  We also use funds to buy ingredients for making fresh playdough and cook with the children.


Set on Class Dojo - a termly challenge sheet for you to choose the topic areas from. Work completed at home should be shared either by uploading practical examples on Tapestry or sending work in. Eg. collection of Autumnal items. It can also be downloaded below. 


Once the children are settled into Reception.  As your child settles in to school, we will send home a reading book and flashcards to practice phonics and reading 'red words'. In addition to this, they will have a library book to encourage reading for pleasure and enjoyment, this is to share between the child and a grown-up. We will hold a meeting of how you can support your child's reading at home and will share Oxford Owl link with you for more advice.
