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

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.


Reading books are changed three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Please read with your child every night and sign the planner. 
Library books are changed on Wednesdays.

We are very excited to announce Oxford Owl as another reading resource for you to access. The children will have a book and quiz allocated to them related to their phonics work.

Useful Websites
