Pale blue shirt or school polo shirt, royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan, grey trousers, grey pinafore dress or grey skirt, grey/ white socks or tights, and black shoes.

Summer – dark plain cotton shorts and school polo shirt and black shoes or blue and white gingham dress.

To make it easier to find misplaced uniform and belongings PLEASE make sure that all items a clearly labelled with your child’s name; we are more likely to find lost property this way.

Please note that jewellery is limited to stud earrings and a watch.

Uniform can be purchased from Ruggerbugs


PE kit (Including outdoor learning)
PE may be taken outdoors, with this in mind, please make sure that PE kit includes some warm clothing.  It is important that the children are comfortable in their lessons and can move freely and stretch in their PE clothes.  For PE, we suggest:

Black or grey joggers/ leggings/ shorts

T-shirt or similar

A jumper or sweatshirt (to stay warm)


NO jewellery is allowed for PE lessons, please remove earrings before school (if children can do this themselves they may do so in class, but no adult help is permitted), watches will be removed before the lesson, to keep everyone safe.


Outdoor learning:
Takes place once a week, and we will be outdoors in all weathers so please make sure you will be warm and dry.  You do not need to worry about buying special equipment, old clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy or wet will be fine.  For outdoor learning, we suggest wearing:

Joggers/ leggings/ trousers  with or without a waterproof layer

Sweatshirt and t-shirt

Waterproof coat

Wellies or old trainers (we will be in mud and the wet, they will get messy!)

Hat and gloves may also be handy as the weather turns colder brrr!

Once again, it is much easier to find lost items if they’re clearly labelled, even bags and lunch boxes. 


Any money brought into school should be in a labelled envelope.

This is more important now than ever to reduce the risk of cross contamination.


Reading takes place every day in class.  Each morning time is put aside for practising reading books, please bring your reading book every day, Dojo points are awarded for this.  In the afternoon we have Group Guided reading sessions when we will read other texts and do a range of activities such as comprehension, true and false, shared reading and thinking games.


Spellings are given every fortnight.  Each child will have a group list to use, they can take a paper copy or find the lists on Google Classroom.  The lists will have the date of the spelling test on them, so you know when this is happening.  Every time the children have a new spelling list, we have a spelling lesson in class, we read through the lists, look for sound patterns, improve our word understanding and explore the patterns in other words.


Homework is posted on Google Classroom every half term.  The page of activities are based on learning that the children want to explore and are designed so that you can choose an activity to do every week, during that half term.
You may be asked to make or draw something, in which case you can photograph it and send it through Dojo so we can see it.  There might be some maths work, writing or experimenting; again, if you can’t fill in a worksheet we will ask you to photograph or video and upload to Dojo.


How can you help at home?
There are some simple ways to help at home:

Talk - play I spy, snakes and ladders, connect 4, even dominoes, these are great to encourage thinking and you can have a laugh too.

Practice - spelling, reading, handwriting, tables; repeating things really does help them ‘stick’.

Money - count your piggy bank savings, work out the change you should have, calculate the shopping list, find the % off, the possibilities are endless (sadly, money does not grow on trees though!)

Time - look at different clock faces (clock face and digital, 12 and 24 hour), tell the time on the hour, half past, quarter past and quarter to, time how long until your cake is cooked, how long did you sleep? When will the bus arrive? When is my favourite programme on?
