Drop off and pick up times


As you are aware we now have a one way system and staggered drop off and pick up times.

Turtle class drop off window is 9:00 - 9:10. 

Pick up is 3:10 - 3:20.

Please stick to these times to ensure we have the minimum amount of people on the school grounds at one time.  


 PE day is Tuesday. 

On this day children should come to school in their PE kit. In the colder months this can be a tracksuit (black/navy blue) and trainers. If your child wants to wear their PE shorts underneath they can or just the tracksuit is fine.


FOREST SCHOOL day is Monday

On this day children should come to school in their FORESCT SCHOOL kit. This can consist of an old tracksuit, leggings, trousers and a warm jumper. Anything that you don't mind getting dirty. 


Summer 2 Learning


This half term our topic is

'All creatures great and small'


IntentOur intent with this learning is for children to have an understanding of the different animals that live in the world and the habitats they live in.  

Implementation The children will see pictures and videos of animals in different countries. They will have hands on experience of animals in our country by visiting a farm, and using our forest and local environment to focus on minibeasts.

Impact Children will have a knowledge of animals and how we should look after our environment to help the animals.

Why now? - Linking to the idea of new life, the season where new animals are born.
