 FOREST SCHOOL FOR MR FARMER'S CLASS TOMORROW (5/10/2017)

Children will need to come to school dressed in their forest school clothes with their uniform in named bag. The clothes the children will need will depend on the weather but generally waterproof coat, waterproof trousers and wellies will do. Tracksuit bottoms or similar and a warm top underneath as well please. 

__________________________________________________________________

Phonics Keyrings

Phonics keyrings will be sent home on Fridays. The keyring has the sounds the children have been learning in Phonics during the week (and all the previous ones). Please practise all the sounds at home. If you are unsure about what sounds the letters make then please look on YouTube and sing the Jolly Phonic songs with your child.

 We are running a Phonics workshop straight after school on 28th September. More details to follow.

Homework Plan

Forest school dates:

Mr Farmer's class (JAYS) 22/9/2017 and 6/10/2017

Mrs Turner's class (BLACKBIRDS) 29/9/2017 and 13/10/2017

Children will need to come to school dressed in their forest school clothes with their uniform in named bag. The clothes the children will need will depend on the weather but generally waterproof coat, waterproof trousers and wellies will do. It is much better to send the children with hats and gloves to keep them warm and for them to take them off, than for them to get cold without them!

They will change after the session in the forest and will put their muddy clothes in the bag.

Wellies can stay in school on our welly racks unless the children will need them at home. We do have a limited supply of spare wellies but not in all sizes.

The children will be doing PE on the Fridays when they don't have forest school sessions.
