Practical things to remember about each school day
Please ensure all of your children's items are clearly labelled with their names on to ensure that they are easy to identify if they were to leave them somewhere in the building. This includes all P.E kits, uniforms (particularly jumpers and cardigans, lunch boxes and water bottles. This makes it much easier to find a missing item.
Snack and water bottles
Your child is provided with a snack in school each morning and afternoon. Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school every day, and this may only be filled with water.
Book bags and reading books
Please ensure your child brings their reading record and home reading book into school every day. Please sign the reading record each time you read with your child at home. Reading at home every day is vital in supporting your child in their reading development.
PE will be on Monday afternoon for Leeds Class and Friday afternoon for York Class. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on these days.
