Reading and Reading Rewards

We love reading in school and share stories daily with the children. We aim to install a love of reading in all children! We encourage children to read at least 5 times a week at home. Just 10 minutes a day will make a real difference to the progress that your child makes. If your child reads at least 5 times a week at home, they will receive a voucher for the Golden Box. Each week, a name is picked out to win a BRAND NEW BOOK to keep!  Please record all reading in the reading records to ensure that we can monitor your child’s reading.Reading and Reading Awards.

Outdoor Learning and Forest School

We are lucky enough to have an outdoor learning session led by Mrs Creswell, a qualified Forest School leader, once a half-term. On these days, children need to bring suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions (in a labelled bag) to change into before the session. Old clothing is recommended as we may get very muddy! This half-term, our outdoor learning sessions with Mrs Cresswell will be on WEDNESDAY 12th JANUARY.

Key Information 

  • Drop-off time is between 8:35am – 8.40am. Pick-up time is at 3.00pm.
