Smart School Snacks – Children should bring a healthy snack to eat at break time such as fruit or vegetables or other nutritional snacks. We recommend the children bring a healthy snack instead of items such as sweets, crisps and chocolate.
Communication- Their are many ways the school tries to stay in touch with parents. In an effort to reduce paper waste our main form of communication is via the email address you gave to the school. We also have an F1 twitter feed, whole school Facebook page, Tapestry (see separate tab). If you need to contact us then please feel free to talk to us before or after school or send us an email. For any urgent communication please call the school office as we may not check our email during the teaching part of the day.
Shoes- The children need to come to school in trainers everyday as F1 has a very active learning environment and the children will be learning both indoors and outdoors. The children need to bring a pair of wellies(gumboots) which will stay at school. Please ensure your child’s boots are named clearly. Flips Flips are not recommended.
Spare clothes- Please send at least two sets of spare clothes and we will keep them in their trays at school. We recommend all clothes sent into school are labelled as this reduces the chance of clothing being misplaced.
Wet weather gear – Unless it is stormy or severe winds children are allowed to play outside in any weather. Please help us in this by providing waterproofs during the monsoon months and warm coats during the winter.
Library- The children will have a library session every Wednesday. They will be provided with a school library bag please keep the library books in the bag while travelling between home and school.
P.E – P.E. for F1 will be on Monday and Thursday. Children will need a school PE T.shirt, shorts and a tracksuit for when the weather gets colder. They must wear trainers for both PE sessions. Please label the P.E kit.
Music- Every Wednesday the children will explore using different musical instruments and movements with our music teacher Mrs Elizabeth Pratten.
Outdoor Learning – Outdoor Learning will begin in Term 2. Please see the separate page for more details.
