Important information

Forest School or Welly Walks

This term we will be going to Forest School, or on a Welly Walk on alternate Thursdays.


PE with Mr Sing is on a Wednesday. Children need to come into school wearing their PE kit on a Wednesday. There will be another PE session in the week, but children do not need to come in wearing their PE kit for this session.


Library books can be changed on a Friday.


Please listen to your child read every night and make a comment in their reading record. We use the children’s reading book in class daily, so please ensure that it is packed in your child’s book bag ready.

Class Dojo

In EYFS we use Class Dojo as our main way of communicating with parents. We will put messages and reminders on Dojo, so please check this regularly. We also post photographs of some of the activities that we are doing.


Each child has an online learning journal called Tapestry. We love to see the things that your child is doing at home, so please do share their activities and learning from home. Sometimes we will add photographs and observations of your child at school, but we are trying to spend more time interacting with your children, instead of recording evidence.
