P.E is on Thursday.

The children need to keep their P.E kit in school for the half term. It will be sent home on the last day of half term. Just a quick reminder that jewellery is not be worn in school for safety reasons!

Please put your child’s name on all items of clothing, so they don’t get mixed up when dressing and undressing!

Reading books

Reading books will go home every day starting from Friday.

Please write comments in their reading records (for example “Enjoyed this book and could tell me what was happening” or “Made a good attempt at sounding out new words” etc.). Books will be changed regularly.

N.B If you have not signed the orange record book or entered comments about your child’s new reading book we will presume that it was not read and change it only when we see a comment.

High Frequency words

We will also give out words for the children to learn. These will be in the orange reading record. These words will help your child to read fluently and confidently. Please colour them in when they know them. 

Water bottles

Children can bring water bottles in every day and take them home to fill.


At break time we offer fruit. A contribution of £1 a week would be appreciated to enable this to happen.


Please could your child bring in something for our Autumn table. E.G conkers, acorns, toy squirrels, hedgehogs etc.

 Thanks for your help!

Mrs Cochrane (Teacher on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Chorley (Teacher on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)
