Reading

Children are expected to bring their book bags, reading books and reading journals to school every day. Your child needs to be reading everyday either independently, or with you. Please record a comment in their reading journals. Your child will read with an adult at least once a week in class to see how they are progressing.

The children are expected to know when they need to change their books and do so accordingly. We also strongly advocate reading for pleasure and the children are encouraged to bring home any picture books of their choice as long as they are returned.

Rewards

Every week, the class teacher will choose their star of the week; these will be children who have demonstrated a Growth Mindset by trying really hard in their learning or with their behaviour. Throughout the week, your child may receive a green card for exceptional behaviour, learning, or particular effort to follow the school values and will also receive house points (via Class Dojo) for motivation and encouragement.

Homework

We expect all children to read or be read to at home every night. Pleas ensure that your child brings their reading book and reading record into school every day.

Equipment

Your child should have:

  • A water bottle,
  • Book bag,
  • Coat

In summer your child must also have a sunhat. Please ensure all clothing is labelled with the child’s name.

Morning snack

The children are entitled to have a piece of fruit or vegetable as their morning snack.

Lunch time.

As your child is in the Infants they are entitled to a Free School Meal. Our School dinners are provided by Independent Catering. We can honestly say that our school dinners taste incredible! Every day children have the choice of a meat, vegetarian or pasta option. If none of these options are suitable then there is always the option of a jacket potato with a variety of fillings. We also have a salad bar with 14 different salads and a lovely range of puddings.
