Year 1-2

Autumn 2019


Welcome back to the new school year!


What an exciting term we have ahead of us. Our topic this term is Castles and Dragons which includes a visit to Castle Rising and from the Raptor Foundation.


Homework will start next Friday (13th September 2019).


Please ensure your child has their kit in school every day. Kit should comprise of: shorts, T shirt, trainers, spare socks and when the colder weather arrives, a pair of jogging bottoms and fleece/sweatshirt.  Earrings must be removed on all PE days and children with long hair must have it tied up.

PE days

Monday - Chestnut and Beech

Tuesday - Larch, Chestnut and Beech

Thursday - Larch


Children are expected to have their named PE kits in school for these sessions.  As the days are now quite cold it would be useful if your child could also have a jumper and tracksuit bottoms as well as the usual t-shirt, shorts and trainers.  Children should ensure that long hair is tied back, no jewellery or watches are worn and earrings are removed for any PE sessions.  If children need to remove earrings during the day, then they should be able to do this themselves and have a suitable container to store them in.


We are always happy to answers any queries that you may have but we would request that you come to see us after school via the office rather than the morning, as this is a very busy time of day.

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!
