A few extra notes...


  • Our P.E day is Wednesday. We ask that you make sure that ALL your child’s clothes are marked with their name, as you can appreciate the children are still very young and are not always able to recognise their own uniform, especially when they are all so similar.
  • Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing, as we like to be outside whenever possible.
  • We have ‘Show and Tell’ on a Friday. Children may bring in something small from home and keep it in the special box to show and talk about with their friends during carpet time. This could either be linked to our topic or it could be an item linked to achievement or personal interest, e.g. a certificate ( no toys please).
  • A reading book will be sent home regularly (please could you sign the reading record book so that we know it has been completed at home). Sounds and tricky words booklets will also be sent home to practise.
