On this page you will find the information you will need to help your child at school. You will also find helpful resources (in the yellow drop-down boxes) for your child to access at home as well as newsletters and homework at the bottom of the page.

Book Bags
Please bring these to school every day. Children should have their Reading Diary and any books, Ditty Sheets or Tricky Words in them. Please make sure you are writing in their Reading Diary too!

PE Kits
PE Kits stay in school and we send them home once every half-term to be washed.

Uniform
Our uniform information can be found HERE. Please ensure all articles of clothing have names in. We do our best to help children keep track of their items, but we need your help with this.

Water Bottles and Snacks
Please provide a reusable water bottle with your child's name on it. This should only be for water. Children can also bring in a healthy snack for breaktime if they wish, but fruit is supplied daily.

Phonics

You can find phonics on our Phonics Class Page or by clicking the image below!

Handwriting

Weekly Spellings

Read the words and identify what is ‘tricky’ about them.

Use the ‘look, write, check’ method to practice spelling the word. Other good strategies include using fridge magnets, looking out for the word in a reading book or rainbow writing where you repeat writing out the word using as many different colours as you can.

Practice improving your handwriting by copying out the spellings.
