Please be reminded we will be having our annual Christmas fair for the children to purchase gifts for family members on Thursday 7th December. This is a great opportunity for the children, and they really enjoy it. Please can all children bring in a named carrier bag for all gifts purchased and a named container or zipped purse/wallet with a name. we recommend a guideline of £5 maximum. Please speak to your class teacher if you have any questions around this.


Please ensure all children bring a named coat to school. Children can bring a pair of wellies and leave them in their cloakroom to use, if needed. Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle (water only, not squash) and a healthy snack (school fruit is available).


Reading record books- Please try and fill in the reading record so we can see how much your child is reading (just the book name and an adult initial). When your child has read these books a minimum of 3 times, they can change their books in class. Please can reading records be brought into school every day.


The weekly spelling books will be sent home on a Monday and need to be returned to school on the following Monday, for new spellings to be added.

Spelling: This spelling site is offering the opportunity for parents to download an app with a free subscription.



If you have an iPad please upload PocketPhonic Stories. This is an app that is excellent for teaching handwriting, phonics and reading. You will need to log in for your child but then they should be able to complete these on their own. There are certificates you can print off to motivate your child.
