Friday Photos

If things were 'normal' we would invite parents into class at the end of every Friday to watch a slideshow to see what their child's class has been doing over the course of the week. We call this 'Friday Photos'.


Sadly, with the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to do this, so instead here is a slideshow of photos from all of the Year R classes!  Remember to take a look each Friday evening, and see if you can spot your child! 

Isolation Activity Grid

The isolation grid is to be used by children who are self isolating in addition to any work that is sent home via Google Classroom. The grid has a wide range of activities that can be completed in your home, including Maths, English and Science tasks, as well as well-being and creative activities like baking, drawing etc.

PE Information

Your child will have PE once a week. When it is the day for your child to do PE, they should come in to school wearing their PE kit, and they will stay in this all day.  Children should wear a white T-shirt and dark leggings or tracksuit bottoms, but can we please ask that these have elasticated ankles for safety reasons. Children will also need to wear plimsolls.



Children’s home reading books will normally be changed at least twice a week if they have been heard to read at home. Please keep your child’s reading book and their reading record in their book bags and bring them to school each day. Your child will get the greatest benefit if you can hear them read as often as possible, a few pages each night is ideal, you don’t need to worry about reading the whole book every time. Each time you hear your child read can you please sign and make a comment in their reading diary.

Life in Lockdown Photos

We asked you to send in photos of the children being creative, baking cakes, enjoying family time and playing with their siblings. Take a look to see if you recognise anyone in the gallery below.
