Notices for Parents:

  • From September, the school day will return to normal. The classroom doors will open at 8.45am, ready for an 8.55am start. We will finish learning at 3.15pm.
  • The children will enter the school premises and make their way down to the Reception playground next to the Reception garden. 
  • The children will be offered a piece of bagel in the morning and we will have a fruit snack during the afternoon. 
  • Every morning the children will learn to read and write their new phonics sounds and practise their next steps in Maths.
  • They will have the opportunity to learn through play in all areas of the classroom and outside garden. We are looking for playful unicorns, busy bees and wise thinking owls.
  • Forest School will be on a Monday afternoon; please make sure they have their Forest School clothes with them. They will need thick trousers, 2 warm jumpers, a coat, socks and a woolly hat!
  • PE will be on a Thursday afternoon. It will be indoors for the Autumn term. They will need a white t-shirt and black shorts. They will have bare feet for gymnastics and dance so no fancy trainers will be needed. All long hair will need to be tied back and ear rings will need to be left at home on a Thursday.  


We've had lots of fun exploring our new school and making new friends. Look at our exciting Willow adventures!
