Key Information for Parents


PE in FS1 will take place on a Thursday.

Please come to school wearing PE Kit and trainers with a Velcro fasten, until your child can fasten their own laces. 

If your child does not come to school in their PE kit, the parents will be contacted to bring their PE kit into school.


Each Thursday we will upload a memo to Tapestry with tasks to complete over the weekend, to prepare your child for their learning in school the following week. 


The focus for each week’s phonics lessons can be found on the memo that is uploaded to Tapestry every Thursday.  


Please read at home at least 3 times a week and fill in your child’s diary each time you read. This includes their library book, their Lilac band pre-reader book and any books that you have at home.

Important Information

Outdoor learning is an incredibly big part of Nursery (FS1), please provide a pair of wellies to stay in school.

Bring a filled drinks bottle every day, clearly named with your child’s name.

Our PE kit is dark blue/black shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings, plain white t shirt and school jumper.

Children need a book bag to carry their reading books in to school and back home.

Other bags will not be allowed due to lack of storage space.


Phonics Links

In Nursery, we focus on our listening skills, in preparation for learning our sounds following the No Nonsense Phonics Scheme in school.

Here is a handy parent guide to help to develop your child’s listening skills.
