Our bubble drop off and collection time is 8.30 and 3.00


Thursday is our day for P.E. Please come to school dressed in your full kit.


Please bring a named water bottle and your reading books to school everyday. You do not need a contact book, please fill in our online reading record (link at the top of the page) if you have read. You do not need book bags for the time being. 






Please try to read with your child at least 4 times a week. Reading is the backbone of learning and extremely important to your child's development.


Your child will be bringing home one of our beautiful new Guided Reading books twice a week. Please share these with them and return the next day. We will also be providing the children with a reading book to share; this is their choice and maybe too difficult or easy for them. It is to foster a love of reading and can be shared at home. Those children who are on the Accelerated Reader Program will also be bringing home a banded book for them to read and can be brought back to be changed whenever they finish it. 

If you wish to do some extra reading with your child, here is a link to a list of recommended books that you could share.
Another way you can support you child at home is by practicing the spelling and reading of the year 1 and 2 common exception words.
