'Reading Caterpillars' will be given out at the Curriculum Meeting. Please practise segmenting and blending consonant, vowel, consonant (CVC) words with your child daily.

Class Routines

Forest School- The children will have the chance to go on nature walks, minibeast hunts and explore the Forest School area every Tuesday morning with Mr Bennett. Children should come to school on a Tuesday wearing tracksuit bottoms and their school uniform tops. Please ensure they have waterproofs in their book bags each Tuesday and a pair of wellington boots to be kept at school. It is also a good idea to supply extra dry socks in their book bags just in case! Forest school starts on 11th September.

PE- We will be doing PE on Wednesday afternoons but PE kits should remain in school at all times. The children will be doing Gym and Dance in the community hall. Please ensure that everything that comes into school is CLEARLY LABELLED. PE sessions start on 12th September.
