Welcome back to the 2nd and extremely busy term. The beginning of the festive period will soon be upon us and we will be hosting our next UKS2 ran Christmas market 2023.

Reminders for Autumn Term 2023

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. Books will be changed when needed. Children should not wear jewellery to school apart from stud earrings.

Homework is due in on Thursdays. If children forget, they can bring it in on Friday. If it is not in by Friday morning, children will stay in at break on Friday to complete homework. Spellings will be handed out Friday and tested the Friday after.
Just a reminder that children will not need to bring in additional stationery or pencil cases as this equipment will be provided and that toys should be left at home.

PE for Kingfisher and Kestrel will be on Monday and Friday and PE for Fox will be on Monday and Thursday.  Children are to come to school in their PE kit and trainers on these days to avoid the need to change in school. Earrings need to be either removed for PE or covered in plasters that you can provide please.
