AM & PM Routine
Early morning routine – We collect the children from the playground at 8:25am and register them by 8:40am. As we settle in to our routines, early morning work will take place in the form of phonics, maths and curriculum linked activities.
End of the day routine – The day ends for the children at 3:00pm and you can collect your child from the Reception gate.
Please label your child’s uniform and P.E kit clearly and ensure they have appropriate clothing for our changeable weather. We will be outside rain or shine!
PE & Outdoor Learning
Our PE lessons will take place on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings. On these days, children should attend school in their P.E. kits with appropriate clothing for our forest school sessions (Tuesdays). Please could all children be provided with jogging bottoms as P.E. will continue even in colder weather.
Food & Drink
Fruit and drinks – We will provide a piece of fruit or a healthy snack for morning break time. Each child will need to bring in a named water bottle to drink throughout the day. Water bottles will be easily accessible in the class room and the children are given lots of opportunities to have a drink throughout the day.
Lunchboxes – These will be stored together the classroom. Please remember we are a nut free school and operate a Healthy Lunchbox policy.
Reading & Homework
Reading – Each child has been given a reading record so that any reading done at home or school can be logged. Even 5 minutes at home each day makes a huge difference. These books are levelled and are mainly for home reading. We have a fantastic library here, as well as many lovely books in our classroom for children to enjoy.
Home Learning – We will send spellings, English and Maths activities home in a homework book once we are settled into our routines. Much more information will be available when we begin.
This is how we will give you any important information and how you can keep in touch with us if you have any concerns or wish to celebrate something your child has done.
