Healthy Snacks and Water

Please ensure your child brings a healthy snack of fruit or vegetable daily.  FP pupils are encouraged to eat a snack during the morning to help them maintain concentration.  Your child will need to bring a water bottle to school every day with fresh water. This will also help concentration and keep them hydrated, which is very important.

Curriculum

There will be a focus on the children accessing the outdoors as much as possible, therefore, please ensure your child comes into school with coats and suitable footwear everyday.

Oxford Owl is a fantastic resource to use for reading with your child.  Your child will have a class login which he/she can access at home as well as school.  A letter will be sent via schoop/website giving details of literacy, maths and science topics covered this term.

 

Information

It is really important that you make us aware of any issues or worries that your child may have so that we can deal with them early on.  Also, it is very important that you inform staff of any medical issues as soon as possible.

 

Letters

We will be sending letters and information home via SCHOOP.  If you haven’t already downloaded SCHOOP, please download from Google play or apple app store.  The school code is 7749.
