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

All items of uniform and child’s topcoat and wellington’s MUST be labelled with the child’s name.

Uniform can be purchased from Ruggerbugs


PE kit (Including outdoor learning)
Pupils will wear their PE kit to school on Wednesdays. They will need shorts, joggers or leggings (depending on the weather), a t shirt, sweatshirt and trainers.

We do a lot of outdoor learning in Foundation phase, so please make sure your child has a waterproof coat everyday.

On Friday we do messier outdoor learning so please send them in with wellies and waterproofs (we are unable to use the school ones at the moment)


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/ phonics
Your child will have a reading day to bring their book bag in, they will read in school that day and change their book. Please read their book at home with them and talk about the story.. They will use sounding out and picture clues to help them.

We do Jolly phonics daily in school. There are lots of song clips you can look at on line (google Jolly phonics).


Spellings will be given out once a fortnight on a Friday, the children should practise the spellings everyday for a test the following Friday. It is really important that they practise regularly for the spellings to ‘stick’ long term.


Once a fortnight they will be sent home a ‘Beat it test’ for maths on a Tuesday. This is to practice at home as they will do the same one on that Friday and will hopefully ‘beat’ their previous score. Don’t worry if they don’t get them all right, (they don’t get long to do it, as it is about speeding up mental maths and is about getting better each time.)

You will be provided with a menu of homework activities for each half term. You can complete them in any order. If it is a practical activity please send me a photo on Dojo.


How can you help at home?
Read, read, read!  Send book bags in on there reading day.
Be encouraging, praise effort & complete any homework sent home.
