We will spend our first few weeks exploring our new environment; both inside and out, making new friends and building relationships. We have lots of lovely stories, rhymes and songs to share with you.

 

All About Me treasure Box

You can send this into school whenever it's ready. It would be amazing if they could be in school by Monday 19th September. It dosn't need to be be crammed full. Include 5-10 items that will help us get to know your child. They will need to stay in school for a few weeks. We usually send them home by October half term. 

 

PE days

Monday and Wednesday will be our two PE days. At the moment you can come to school on these days dressed in your PE clothes. The rest of the school have to bring clothes to change into for PE. We will let you know when we are going to do this too.

We wil start wearing our PE clothes to come to school on Monday and Wednesday from Monday 12th September onwards (not the first week).

For PE we wear a white t-shirt with blue shorts or leggings/joggers or a skort.

We wear our school jumpers/cardgans or school fleeces. You could also wear a plain blue sweatshirt/hoodie.

You will need to wear a pair of trainers or pumps. Trainers are better especially when we are outside. 

 

Seesaw

Seesaw is just one of the ways we communicate with you and share what your child has been doing at school. We might not post something everyday but we post as often as we can so please keep checking. If you enable notifications in your device settings you shouldn't miss anything. If you can't log in for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so we can rectify this for you.

 

Wellies

Your child will need a pair of wellies to leave at school. They will be used most days, particularly in wetter weather and over the winter. You are welcome to take them home over the holidays but don't forget to bring them back!
