Please make sure your child has a full, named PE kit. They need indoor and outdoor kits please – T shirt, shorts and trainers are essential items. (See website for uniform & PE list).
Tuesday and Alternate Wednesdays are the PE days for Ash class.
Start of the Day
Please escort your child to the playground by 8:55, where they will be collected by their teacher. A member of staff will be out on the playground at 8:45 – please do not leave your child unaccompanied before then and do not wait outside the classroom.
End of Day
KS1 children finish at 3.25pm. Parents should wait outside the class door as usual. In the interests of child safety, please do not enter the school building at the end of the day. If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher, then please be patient and wait until the teacher is free. Our main priority is ensuring that the children in our care are handed over to their parent or carer.
Please let school know if somebody else is picking up your child at the end of the day.
Your child will have spellings and maths learn its as homework. They NEED to learn these off by heart. Completed tests will be sent home – please practise any that are wrong.
Reading books will be sent home daily. Please read with your child nightly and return the books to school every day. It is your child’s responsibility to change their reading book. I actively encourage re-reading a book that they have enjoyed!
