Q. Should my child bring a bag into school?
A. No - your child will only need to bring in their coat, a labelled drinks bottles and a packed-lunch (if they are not having a school dinner).
Q. Does my child need a pencil case?
A. Each child has been provided with a pack full of all the equipment they will need including a writing pencil, pen (if appropriate), coloured pencils, scissors, ruler, white-board and white-board pen. This wallet will live in their tray. If your child would like to bring in their own equipment, it must be in a wipeable case, and able to fit comfortably into their tray. Once this has been brought into school it will not be able to go home again.
Q. Will there be homework set this term?
A. Yes. A homework grid will be uploaded to the class webpage. It is expected that children complete one piece of work from each section (English, Maths, Topic) each term. These will be collected every Friday along with their reading records.
Q. How do I contact the teacher?
A. Due to the rolling drop off and pick up times at the beginning and end of the day, face to face contact will be difficult and kept to a minimum. This doesn't mean we cannot contact one another though. If you would like to contact me, please do email the office and they will pass a message on to me or I can call you back as soon as I can. There may also be times in which I will call you after the school day to share information. Please do not hesitate to contact me if needed. You can also contact me through your child's reading record. If you need to pass on a message that is not urgent please write it in there and we will respond on a Friday.
