Information for Families
We have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday in Fledglings Class. Children can come to school in their PE kit on those days.
Reception Class attend Forest School on Friday afternoons with Mrs Williams. They should always have a full waterproof and wellies with them in school. If your child is wearing a skirt on Fridays, please send trousers for them to change into. Depending on the weather you might want to send additional clothing e.g. hats, gloves, hoodies, sunglasses, sunhat etc.
Drink Bottles and Snack
Children need a labelled drink bottle in school every day. It is sent home every evening to be washed and returned as large amounts of bacteria can build up in unwashed bottles. Children should have water only in their bottles wherever possible. Children can refill their bottles as many times as they would like to during the school day. We offer free fruit at snack time, and milk is free for those under five. When your child turns five, you can pay for milk each day through the school office. Children may bring their own fruit for snack if they wish but no other snacks are permitted.
Children can bring a packed lunch to school or order lunches through the school office. All children are entitled to Universal Free School Meals in Reception and Key Stage One, but these still need to be ordered. Children can have packed lunch one some days and school dinners on others.
Children should always have a full set of spare clothes in a cotton bag on their peg in case of accidents or getting wet/messy. This should include a full set of clothes and underwear. Please ensure that these are labelled.
Book bags, Reading Books an Home-School Diaries
Your child's book bag, Phonics book, library book, home-school diary and reading record should be in school every day. Your child will only receive a new Phonics book each Monday but can change their library books as often as they choose. Please note that new Phonics and Library books will not be issued until previous books are returned.
