Take a look at our timetable:

 

 

 

Tulip Tuesday & Thistle Thursday- (This will begin once the children start full time)

Tulip Tuesday and Thistle Thursday are our outdoor learning afternoons. Every child will have the wonderful opportunity to explore our outdoor every week! 

A group letter has been sent home to show which session your child is in. This is also on our class window.

Please send your child to school in their own outdoor clothing that you don't mind getting a little messy. We will provide the children with full body suits and wellies.

 

Keep an eye on our Tulip Tuesday and Thistle Thursday Gallery below as we try to update this weekly.

 

Clothing

It is so important for your child to feel comfortable at school all day. Therefore could you please make sure they have a spare change of named clothes in school at all times. Their clothes will stay in their own box.
The children may get messy, muddy and wet as they always have access to outdoors!
Swimming is every Wednesday – please make sure you bring your swimming kit to school in the morning.

 

Could you please ensure your child’s name is in every item of clothing worn in school, as this will prevent belongings from getting lost.


Homework

Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is usually RML related to help children with learning their sounds. Homework needs to be completed and returned to school no later than the following Tuesday. If it is returned late there will not be enough time for books to be changed.
