PE is on a Wednesday so please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on this day. They need a white t-shirt, black shorts and all jewellery must be removed. Please can you name all items of PE kit and school uniform.


School Dinners

We send home menus with the following week’s choices on a Friday. Can you please help your child to choose their dinners for the week and return the menu to their class teacher on Monday morning.


Home Time

If someone else is picking your child up from school can you please let a member of staff know when you drop them off in the morning or leave a message with the office.



Homework will go out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school the following Wednesday. The homework sent out will reflect what we have been learning in class each week and will give you a great opportunity to support and extend your child's learning at home. We also send home sound books which we will add to regularly with all the new letters and sounds that we have covered in phonics lessons so we ask that your child brings these to school everyday. When your child is ready, a reading book will be sent home. Please read with your child as often as possible.

This half term our topic is 'Holidays and Journeys'. The children have chosen to learn about the following holiday destinations: the seaside, France, Spain and Japan. We are going to begin by learning about the seaside before moving on to explore the destinations that are a little further afield. We are going to learn about the different modes of transport we can use to reach these different places, find out where they are on a map, learn about their different cultures, try new food, learn new languages and decide where our favourite holiday destination would be. We are also hoping to have some special visitors come in to tell us more about holidays and different modes of transport.


What Parent's Can Do To Help


  • Read regularly with your child and discuss what they have read.
  • Encourage your child to write about what interests her/him, e.g. labels for toy cars, maps, diaries etc.
  • Help your child with shape and number recognition by looking at shapes and numbers around you e.g. house numbers
  • Encourage your child talk about the world around them and discuss the similarities and differences that they notice.
