Useful Information:

Please ensure your child brings in a coat with a hood every day (we go outside even when it's raining)!  Please provide them with hats/gloves/scarf in the colder months and a sun hat in the summer.  


Children can bring in a book bag to store letters etc - no rucksacks please as we have limited space. 

No stationery items will be needed in Year 1 - we have everything your child will need in school.


Most importantly, please make sure that all uniform and other items are clearly named - this means that lost property can be returned quickly and easily.



Monday and Thursday 

PE Kit: White t-shirt/ school PE shirt or house shirt; dark shorts; dark joggers and sweatshirt; trainers

Children will need to wear their PE kit into school on these days.





It is important that your child remains hydrated throughout the day, so please remember to bring in a water bottle. NO JUICE PLEASE.  Break time fruit is provided. 





Our Forest School sessions will take place every Tuesday afternoon.  On this day, your child will need to come into school wearing trousers or leggings and they must bring in a pair of trainers or wellies and a waterproof coat.  Please only send your child in with clothing and footwear that you do not mind getting dirty - we get very muddy at Forest School!  All-in-one suits and waterproof trousers are also suitable but not essential.

We would like you to encourage your child to read at home every day. We will change your child's reading book on a Monday. Please make sure that reading books are brought back to school each Friday.



There will be one piece of homework set each week. This will change between English, Maths, Science or one area of the wider curriculum. 


All homework is set on Friday and is expected back by the following Wednesday.



In Year 1, we would like all children to participate with our fun and interactive Reading Eggs programme both at home and at school. All children should be encouraged to enjoy 20 minutes of Reading Eggs at home every week, including one reading lesson. Please feel free to extend your learning for even longer! Your teacher will be able to see all of your hard work. Play games, complete puzzles, read stories, write your own stories and complete reading and spelling lessons all whilst earning awards and styling your own Reading Egg character.
