Curriculum Information

  Key Information
Reading Books In Reception school reading books are changed weekly. Your child will be allocated a book change day, which you will be notified of in the Autumn Term. Regrettably we are unable to change school reading books until the previous week's book has been returned. If there is no comment in your child's Reading Record we will assume you have not had a chance to read with your child.
Library Books On Wednesdays all children have the opportunity to go to the school library to choose one book to take home.  Please ensure that your child brings their library book and book bag to school on this day. Regrettably we are unable to issue a new library book until the previous week's book has been returned. Library books do not need to be recorded in your child's Reading Record.
P.E. Day Our P.E. day is Tuesday Afternoon. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Long hair needs to be tied back and earings are not allowed to be worn in shool at any time. It would be helpful if girls could have a pair of white ankle socks in their PE bag for the days they come to school wearing tights.
