Handy Information



Tuck is payable every Monday to Mrs Halligan or Mrs Wood.  Your £1 pays for toast everyday and for occasional extra bits and pieces which enhance children's learning, e.g. art and craft resources, baking ingredients, party food, role-play resources. If we do not receive enough contributions towards tuck, we may have to start providing it to only those who do pay.    



PE with Mr Stevenson will take place every Friday morning.  Please ensure your child has a PE Kit, black shorts, plain sky blue t-shirt, black pumps, trainers and jogging pants for outdoors and a pump bag.  This can be left on your child's peg for the half term.  Please write your child's name on each item of clothing.


Water Bottles 

Please provide a water bottle for your child and bring to school everyday.  We are a healthy school and only plain water is allowed, thank you.


Reading Books 

Reading books need to be in school everyday.  Please sign the Planner to indicate if you have read the book with your child at home.  Books will be changed weekly.


Sound Books

Sound books will be sent home every Friday.  Each week the new letter sounds the class learn during the week will be written in their book.  Please practise reading and writing these sounds at home and return the sound book to school on Mondays.



Every Friday your child will be given the opportunity to choose a Library book.  This should be returned every week so that they can regularly change it.


Good News Bear

As a reward for lovely behavior, every child has the chance to take home our Good News Bear at some point over the year.  A book will also be sent in which you can help your child to draw and/or write or add photographs about their time with the bear.  The Bear will be sent home on Fridays. 

Plant and Play Afterschool Club


Our Early Years Plant and Play afterschool club will start in the Spring Term, details to follow.
