Please let us know if you need anything.


Please make sure that all of your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name,  including hats, gloves and scarves.
We like to learn and play outside in all weathers so your child will need a pair a wellington boots to keep in the cloakroom.

In the Summer term PE will take place every Tuesday. Please bring a PE kit that can stay on your child's peg so that we can get changed. Please label your child's PE kit.

Your children love to share what they have been up to in school and Tapestry is  a great way to do this. The staff in Reception also love to see what you get up to at home- don't forget you can share this with us via Tapestry too.

Useful Websites

Oxford Owl   A great website for the children to read books on line. 

Speak up Salford This is a speech and language website which has some good ideas about how you can help your child with their speech and understanding of words.
