Welcome to Reception Class!
During our first year at school, we ask God to help us grow together as members of His Special Family and to use all our gifts well throughout the year. Amen

What will my child need to bring to school?
All children will need a named coat and a named water bottle every day. Please ensure that this contains only water, not juice or squash. Fruit is provided during the morning, as is milk if you have requested it.
The children all need a named bookbag. It is really helpful if the bookbag is named along the top edge, as the children can find it more easily when they are looking in the bookbag boxes. We will start to send reading books home later this half term.
If you have letters, slips or money to hand in, it is really helpful if you can hand this straight to an adult in the morning as checking through bookbags is time consuming for staff. As your children become more independent and gain confidence, you can encourage them to remember to hand things in themselves.
PE is on a Wednesday morning and on alternate Fridays. The children need to leave their PE kit in school. We will send this home to be washed at the end of every halfterm. Please ensure that your child has trainers in school. (They do not need pumps.) Girls will need a pair of socks in their PE bag if they wear tights to school.
Forest school happens every Thursday afternoon. The children will attend on alternate weeks. (Half the class at a time). The children will need a pair of navy jogging bottoms and a navy sweatshirt and a pair of wellies. This can stay in school and again we will send it home regularly to be washed.
