Useful Information:

Please make sure that your child has warm clothing in school as we will be making sure that windows and door are open to give plenty of ventilation in the classroom to allow the air to circulate.

Water bottles - Children need to bring to school their own water bottle from home. Bottles must be plastic, not glass, and named clearly in a permanent pen. Your child will bring their bottle home each day for washing and refilling (water only please).

 

Snacks - We will have a fruit or vegetable snack every morning at break time.  Alternately you can supply your own snack daily. Water and milk are also freely available for your child to access. 

 

Coat - Please send your child in with a warm raincoat every day. The weather is very changeable, so a sunny early morning can quickly turn into a rainy day.

 

P.E. Year 1’s PE session is on a Tuesday. The children will need to come to school on Tuesdays wearing their full PE kit: joggers/leggings, t-shirt, trainers and a jumper. 

* Please make sure each item is clearly labelled with your child's name and they can identify their own items.

Below there are also links to a variety suitable online activities.
