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 2nd UKS2 ran Christmas market 2022.
Reminders for Autumn Term 2022
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.
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 will be on Monday and Friday. 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.
