Things to Note:
- Children can bring a healthy snack in from home to eat in the morning session. In the afternoon children are provided with fruit from the Government free fruit scheme.
- All children should bring a water bottle to school every day and this must contain WATER ONLY! This water bottle will stay in the classroom for the children to access anytime they need a drink. f your child is having packed lunches then they will need a separate drink in their lunchbox.
- Milk is free for all four year olds but must be ordered from the 'Cool Milk' website. Once children are five they automatically come off the register but parents can go back on the website to purchase milk if they wish to continue having it.
- School meals are provided by Dolce and must be ordered directly from the website where you can choose what your child will have to eat. This can be booked in advance but must be booked at least the night before if you wish your child to have a meal.
- PE is on a Tuesday and children will need a PE kit in school which should include a white t-shirt, a black pair of shorts and black pumps. This will be sent home at the end of each half term for a wash!
- Venus class visit the library every Friday afternoon where they will bring a book home for the week. Please make sure you return your child'd library book before the following Thursday so they can check out a new book.
- Barnaby Bear will choose someone to go home with for the weekend each Friday.
- Forest School takes place every Friday (starting after October half term) and a letter of dates will be sent out at the start of each new term. There will also be information sent out nearer the time to give you more of an idea of what to expect and hopefully entice some helpers! Please see attached powerpoint from the meeting for more information (click on the tree)
- Take home tasks are sent home every Friday and will consist of a Maths challenge. We are also trialing a different system for
homework, whereby the children are asked to choose some tasks to complete from a variety of options which are linked to their class topic and these will change every half term. It would be great if these could be returned by the date specified on the homework sheet. A copy of all homework tasks will be posted on the homework section of Venus' class page (see bottom of page). The take home tasks form part of your child's 'Learning Journey' as part of the 'Home Links' section.
- There will be information sent out in the next few weeks with details of what to expect now your child is on Reception. Please click on the picture below to read a copy of the information at your leisure. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
