Information for parents
Homework in Reception is given out weekly. The aim of the children’s homework is to allow the children to practise and apply the skills they have learned at school. Each week there will be a piece of maths homework and a piece of literacy homework. Homework is given out each Friday and is expected back by Tuesday the following week. If you have any questions, please come and speak to Miss Dodds or Miss Latimer at the end of the school day.
Reading Children are encouraged to read at home every day, please remember to fill in the reading record and return books as soon as they have been read. Every time your child reads they are awarded with a sticker and a green dojo for their effort.
Fruit As we are a healthy school children are encouraged to eat at least 5 fruit or vegetables a day. We have a fruit on offer throughout the morning as part of our daily snack.
Milk We offer free milk to children aged four and under. Children who are five can buy milk for 20p a day. Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle into school so that they can access drinking water throughout the day.
PE Kits All children are expected to have the full PE kit in school every day. The PE kit consists of black shorts, a white t-shirt and plimsolls. Children will be dressing themselves before and after each PE session so please label all of your child’s clothing.
Clothing All children are expected to wear a full school uniform in Reception. We ask that parents also send in a change of clothes and a pair of wellies that can be left at school. Parents are also asked to send their child into school in appropriate clothing as we will be accessing the outdoor area no matter the weather.
We have worked hard through the year and invite your to view our children’s work.
