We have loved looking at your Autumn walk pictures on Tapestry and we have heard many stories where the children have recounted what they saw and  found whilst walking in the woodlands with family and friends. Year R have also been busy going for a Welly Walk looking for signs of Autumn and  we collected lots of sticks for our Hedgehogs which will appear in your homes soon! 


Thank you to all our parents and carers who attended our Year R Information Evening. We hope you found this evening helpful and informative.


This week we have also attended our first whole school assembly where we were thinking about Harvest Time.


It is just one more week till half term and the children all deserve a well earned rest! It has been a fantastic first half term at school and we hope you all have an enjoyable, restful and safe half term.


September 2018



This week your child will have brought home their first reading book to share with you. Please encourage your child to tell you a story using the pictures and talk about what the characters might be feeling and saying. Your child will get a new reading book weekly, please ensure their reading folder and diary is in school every day. We would like you to read with your child at least three times a week and record this in your child's reading diary.

Your child will now have their first home home learning task to complete at home. Books will be collected in every Tuesday and new home learning will be given out on a Thursday. 

We are very excited for our first PE lesson next week. Please make sure all PE kits are in school, your child will not need plimsolls.

We are now ready to begin learning our sounds, we will learn four sounds a week as well as two tricky words (Dory Wavy Words).
