Important Information


Outdoor learning is an incredibly big part of FS2.  Please make sure that your child has a jumper, wellies and a waterproof coat in school every day.

We are asking that all children bring in a water bottle to school every day. Please can this be clearly named and the children will be able to access their drinks as they want them throughout the school day.

Please ensure that your child is heard reading at least five times a week and remember to sign the reading diary each time you read with your child.


Please use your child’s phonic and tricky word flash cards daily to help them learn how to recognise each phonic sound and read and spell each tricky word.


Our PE day is on Thursday.

Children will come to school in their named PE kit with their school jumper. This will help to reduce the amount of time spent changing and increase the amount of time they are engaged in physical activity.



Our PE kit is black shorts, a white t-shirt and black pumps. In colder/wetter weather, children can wear a pair of plain black or blue jogging bottoms.


Pupils MUST use a book bag to transport books and homework to and from school. Large rucksacks will not be allowed due to lack of storage space.
