Your child will be heard read by an adult once a week and therefore should have their book bag and book in school every day. They will not be heard read on the same day each week.


Please note these are subject to change but notice will be given


Read Write Inc


Read Write Inc is now in full swing. During these sessions your child will learn the different sounds that letters make and learn how to read them in words. With each new letter your child learns we will be sending home a sheet for them to practise writing that sound. These do not need returning to school but please do help your child complete them.

Changing weather


We are now asking that your child brings wellies into school every day, if they can be left at school that would be even better! We explore the outside area no matter the weather and we love playing with water so wellies are a must. 

If possible, please also have a change of clothes for your child at school, accidents do happen!


We want to know about all the amazing things your children are doing at home!

Please fill out a Wow! sheet when your child has a Wow! moment – maybe they have learned to read a new word, ride a bike or named a new shape.

Please ask for or pick up a Wow! sheet when you need one, and we will share all the Wow! moments with the class so they can enjoy the news.
