Learning at home

We are looking forward to sharing your child’s learning at school with you. If you have not already signed up to Tapestry – our online Learning Journey, please see the class teacher. It is a wonderful opportunity to share photos from home too.


Name everything!

Please could we ask that you name all items of clothing, including ties. Naming your child’s clothes and belongings is also a great way for children to become more independent, recognising their name and looking after their own things.

Jewellery: We strongly recommend that children do not wear any jewellery to school. If your child has newly pierced ears please provide plasters or Micropore tape to cover their ears during PE sessions.

PE: Please make sure your PE Kit is in school. Also please remember to tie back long hair and remove earrings. Watermelon’s PE day will be Monday. Thank you.
