Another Wonderful week!

We are working very hard practising how to write our name.

 

We loved our Wonderful First Week Certificates, we are so proud of all of YOU! You are the reason why our school is Wonderful! heart

Dear Parent/Carer, 

 

We are writing to say ‘hello’ as we have only seen you from a distance so far. This note explains some of the important information that you may need for the term ahead.  Some of our practices and procedures are different to usual and there may be further changes as we move through the term, depending on any updated government and Local Authority advice. 

 

On arrival - 8:45 - please bring your child to the side gate located by the main school entrance. Early Years staff will assist bringing children into their class. 

On dismissal - 3:00 - please collect your child from the same gate as on arrival.  

Now more than ever, we are very grateful for your punctuality.  

  

  

Your child will have a home-school communication book, it will be sent home every Monday, together with a reading book to share with your child at home. There will not be a separate reading record at this time.  Please keep both books at home until Friday. You can write about the books and stories you have shared together in the home-school communication, putting the date and the book you have read.  If you wish to communicate via the book, be aware that we won’t see this until Friday.  (This is different to usual practice where the book goes back and forth each day.) You can phone the school to pass on messages. 

 

 

 

If you would like your child to have a fruit snack at breaktime, please provide fruit, until further notice. (Fruit has been paid for by the school up until Friday 11th September.) Milk is provided free of charge and the children should continue to bring their own water bottles which can be refilled at any time. 

 

 

 

Your child will need to wear their P.E. kit to school every Tuesday. 

We would suggest leggings/ tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt (not a vest), jumper and trainers. Pale blue, school PE hoodies are available from Tees ‘r’ Us, should you wish to purchase one, although these are not necessary. We will use the outdoors where possible. 

 

 

We use the outdoors for lots of our learning and we visit the ‘wild area’ whenever possible. Please provide a pair of wellingtons (labelled with your child’s name) which can be left in school. We go out come rain or shine!   

 

 

School lunches – you will have received a number to access the online payment system for school lunches.  Children can bring sandwiches or choose from the school menu each day – they will let us know at registration what their lunch choice is. 

 

 

Our website to give you valuable information linked to your child and the school.  If you have any questions, please contact us. 

 

Many thanks, 

 

Mrs Esteban and the Reception Staff
