Important information: 

We love to learn outside in ALL weather! So please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat and wellies in school at all times so they do not miss out. Please ensure that your child is in a warm coat with gloves and a hat available at all times.

Accidents happen, so it is important that all children have a spare set of clothes along with wet wipes in a plastic bag, named and on their pegs.

Please ensure that you read with your child at least 3 times per week and that you sign and comment in their reading diary when you do so.
