We shall not be running our usual tuck shop at the moment due to covid restrictions, but children may bring a healthy snack such as fruit, yoghurt tube, cheese, etc to eat during morning break.
Children who are fluent readers, really can access much more of the curriculum independently. Reading is therefore very important to us. Children can use Oxford Owl to access reading books at home, and reading for five or ten minutes a day with them can make a real difference with their progress.
Due to the organisation of our ‘bubbles’, combined with the limitations caused by the building work, we shall have PE sessions differently in the first term. Classes will be taking part in physical activities in their classrooms (such as Go noodle, yoga and activate) alongside regular mindfulness and wellbeing breaks. They need to be wearing suitable school shoes for these activities and have a water bottle in school daily.
We will inform you when PE kit is needed in school. PE kit should include: a white t-shirt, dark shorts (and track suit bottoms when it gets colder), and well-fitting plimsoles or trainers. It is useful to put in socks if your child has worn tights to school. These must be different from the clothes and shoes that are worn for the school day. Please ensure that all clothing has your child's name in it, as occasionally children get things mixed up with each other.
Children are asked to bring a named water bottle into school each day to ensure that they stay hydrated.
