Reading and Spelling
Please make sure reading books are brought to school every day.
All children will work on their spelling and reading skills daily but will also use a differentiated, literacy instructional program called LEXIA. This is personalised to each individual and targets skills in both reading and spelling in a fun and engaging way.

Forest Schools
Every Thursday afternoon the class will take part in forest schools. Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing.   A suitable coat and appropriate footwear (wellies) is essential for forest schools. 
The school does have some waterproof trousers and spare wellies if your child forgets to bring theirs, but it's easier if each child has their own.


P.E will take place on a Monday and Friday. All children will need, shorts, t-shirt, jogging bottoms, sweatshirt and trainers for sports, depending on the weather. They also need to bring a bottle of water.
