School Diary

Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please comment on the reading children are doing at home, it is important for you to make a notes of when you hear your child read, as prizes are awarded half termly.

Reading is fundamental.  In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard read daily and we will change reading books on a Tuesday and Thursday.

Physical Education

PE is every Monday and Thursday in Maid Marian class (AWKM).

PE is every Monday and Thursday in Sherwood Forest class (KF).

We ask the children to bring fleeces and jogging trousers as well as outdoor footwear (if required during the colder months of the year), as the children will have an indoor and an outdoor session each week. This should include:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy shorts (indoor PE)
  • Plimsolls/trainers
  • Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
