Dear Parents

Welcome to the Autumn Term with Early Years Foundation Stage. The children are settling in well and we are looking forward to working with you this year. We have an exciting curriculum planned and we encourage you to talk to your children about what they are learning at school. Please regularly visit the website for key information and photographs of the children learning.

Mrs A. Ovens, Mrs E. Halls and Miss K. Swindells


P.E Lessons - Please make sure that the P.E kit is in school and all items are clearly labelled. (white t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls).

P.E. sessions will be:-

Goslings – Tuesday and Friday

Cygnets – Tuesday and Friday

Forest Schools

The children will need to come to school dressed appropriately for the weather. They will need waterproof outerwear, either an all in one suit or jacket and trousers. They will always need their wellington boots, which should be kept in school at all times.

Forest Schools will start after half term and we will send out more information nearer the time.
