Things to Remember

As a healthy school we want all children to have access to drinking water throughout the day.  Please ensure that your child brings a labelled drinks bottle of fresh water every day.

So that your child is prepared for all the activities throughout the school week please remember to bring the following things to school.

  • Book bag
  • Please ensure your child attends PE in their PE kits on the day specified by your childs class teacher
  • Reading Scheme and Library books

End of Year Expectations

Please click here for information regarding end of year expectations


In Reception the children receive homework that reinforces the formation of letters that they have learned throughout the week.  We see homework as a very useful tool by which to involve you in the children's learning, however please understand that this can be done at a time that is convenient to you and there is no expectation that you return it for the following day.

Children's reading books are closely matched to the phonics phase that your child is working on. These will be changed on a weekly basis and we ask that you complete four reads per week and complete your child's reading record. Re-reading books to build fluency, pace and expression is highly recommended. You can supplement your child's reading by selecting additional books from our shared "Reading for Pleasure" boxes that are situated outside under the reception shelter. Please help yourselves to these as you wish. They are organised so that they get progressively more difficult from box 1 to box 6, but please note that they DO NOT link with our phonetic reading scheme.
