Special times



  • Please remember to name all school uniform, water bottles, PE kits and coats.

  • As the weather changes, please ensure that your child has a suitable coat, waterproof shoes and a pair of wellies to walk to school in.

  • Being hydrated is really important, so your child will have a named water bottle that they can keep in class all week. This will get washed weekly.

  • PE bags can be brought to school on a Monday and can then be left in school until the end of the week. Our PE day is usually on a Wednesday.

  • Snack money is a voluntary contribution and is £10 per half term. Please use our online school payment system Arbor to pay for this. Thank you for you support.



In our reception classes we adopt a love of reading through regular, self-chosen class stories, opportunities to take home our reading class 'buddy' , parents 'mystery' read invitiations, children bringing in their favourite books from home and the chance to take some of our favourite library books home too!

We also have books as rewards when our children climb up the reading challenge 'beanstalk'.

Reading to children from their early years is very important. Not only does it provide quiet time to bond with one another, it also encourages children to develop their love for books.

Children learn to love the sound of language long before they notice text. You can get even the youngest of children involved by inviting them to look at the pictures as you read and asking them to point out different items and objects.

As children get older you may notice them holding the books the correct way around and turning pages one at a time. They will begin by recalling parts of the book and read the pictures they see in front of them.
Below is a list of books that your child may bring home from school, or talk about as being their favourite after a group story session in class. These might also be accessible at the local library or nearby bookshops (click on the link for opportunities to purchase through Amazon website).

This is a really important year developmentally for your child to progress in their reading and writing. We request that children are read with at least three times per week. Please write in your child's blue reading diary after you have read together so they can climb up the reading challenge beanstalk!



Mathletics is available online and we encourage your child to work as independently as possible to secure their knowledge in mathematics. This will include repeating certain challenges to ensure that they have secured a solid understanding of a particular concept.

Alongside Mathletics and reading, other websites that are beneficial for your child's learning include:
