Reminders for Autumn Term 2022
Books will be changed when needed. Children will need to place their reading diary and book in the changing basket in the classroom.
Each day, children will need suitable uniform according to the weather, water bottles containing water only, healthy snacks for break, reading book and reading diary every day.
The children will not need to bring in additional stationary or pencil cases as this equipment will be provided.
