Key Information 

  • All reception children will have PE every Thursday morning.  Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit every Thursday.  Earrings must me removed at home.
  • Each class will have forest school with Mrs Martin on alternate Friday's.  We will begin on Friday 17th September with Mrs Martin's class (RKM).  Mrs Scott's class (RDS) will be the following week,  Friday 24th September. Please send your children into school dressed in suitable clothing on their forest school day.  This should be long sleeves and trousers, wellies and a water proof coat if possible.  Earrings should also be removed at home when children are doing forest school.
  • It is useful for children to have a bag of spare clothes, including underwear and socks to leave in school.  We enjoy lots of messy and outdoor play in reception so children may need to change if they get dirty or wet.
  • We will provide all children with a school book bag within the first few weeks of September.  Book bags should be brought to school every day.

Mrs Martin's class had lots of fun outdoors for their first forest school session.  We all had a great time exploring the forest school site, looking for bugs and playing in the willow tunnel.
