Children should have a full PE kit in school at all times.  Please label all items. 

Jewellery including earrings are not allowed for PE.

         General reminders:

Your child should bring their book bag to school every day, especially on Friday, which is book-changing day. They should also bring their purple phonics folders to school every day.

Please send your child with a named water bottle on Monday morning.  They will bring the bottle home on Friday to be washed.

This week both Reception classes had a visit from Ms Coppola's snake called Woody! The children enjoyed handling the snake and came up with some lovely language describing how it felt and looked.


We also had a visit from ex-pupil Lizzie Worster who is completing a PhD at UCL. She is working on a research project around reading in Early Years. She spent some time talking to the children about using sign language and taught them the signs to use for the characters in the Gruffalo.

We have bought some lovely new water play equipment for our outdoor area.

The children have loved filling and pouring water using different sized jugs and containers!


Both Reception classes had lovely new SMART Boards installed during half term. The children have been exploring different ways of using them.
