School starts promptly at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30 p.m. Your child’s regular and prompt attendance at school is crucial to his/her success. Please encourage them to line up in the playground so they are ready to be collected by an adult.
As soon as the children enter the classroom in the morning, children immediately start their learning. This is when we will do Handwriting, Dough Disco and next steps to enhance their learning.
PE is on a Monday morning and Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school for these lessons.
PLEASE ensure you read with your child as often as possible. Books will be changed three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
