Welcome to the Orange Unit. Here is some important information about our class.
The class is taught by Miss Glaholm, Mrs Gartland and Mrs Loose
Alternative pick up arrangements
If you have made arrangements for your child to go home with someone different it is essential you let us know. Please Bloomz as soon as possible, preferably the day before, to allow us to receive your message within good time. Alternatively for last minute changes, you could inform the office who will let us know.
The children go outside each day, please ensure they bring a coat to school every day, which will withstand light rain. A hat, gloves and scarf (and wellies) are also a good idea during the cold weather and a sunhat when it is hot. Please ensure that all children’s clothing is named.
Please also be aware that the children will have a Forest Schools session every Monday and Friday afternoon, and they must have warm, waterproof clothing and wellington boots as they will go out in all weathers!
Drinks in the classroom
The children are allowed to drink water freely during the day, especially when it is warm. The children must bring a named water bottle to school each day to drink from and to take it home at the end of every day.
The snack area will be open every morning for children to independently access. A selection of fruit will be available.
The Year 1 children will be having a P.E. lesson with a Total Sports coach on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure your child dresses in appropriate clothing on Wednesdays. The Reception children will have access to continuous indoor and outdoor physical activity throughout the week.
If your child wears earrings, it is school policy that these are either removed or covered for P.E. lessons. Please either teach them to do this themselves or remove them before they come to school that day, as we are not allowed to do it for them. Please also make sure that your child brings a bobble on P.E. days if they have long hair.
We will hear children read regularly in class. They will receive a reading book each week and we also encourage you to use Reading Eggs with them which includes comprehension activities.
If possible, please hear your child read for ten minutes each day and ask them questions about what they have read as this makes a big difference to the progress they make.
We do not ask for parents to do specific homework tasks. Activities are available on Mathseeds/Numbots and Reading Eggs/Fast phonics for the children to access. You will be given log-in details in the next few weeks if you do not already have access. The topic information leaflet is sent home half-termly with suggestions of things you can do at home which are linked to our topics.
All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal. We give the option of either a cooked lunch or a ‘Grab Bag’. Your child can choose each morning which they would like or they may bring in a packed lunch from home if they wish. The menus are sent out beforehand, it would be useful for you to discuss the choices available with your child each day.
Please remember that we have a ‘no nut’ policy at our school, this includes Nutella.
We would like to reduce the amount of lost property we accumulate in school. To help us reunite children with lost clothes it is essential they have names on all items of clothing then we can return found items. Please help us by labelling all your child’s property, including water bottles and pack up boxes.
We ask that the children do not bring toys or footballs into school. We have footballs in school for the children to use.
Please could the children bring in a named spare set of pants and bottoms in case of accidents to be kept in a named bag in their classroom storage box.
If your child needs to take medicine during the school day please take this to reception. You will need to fill in a consent form for us to administer this. For children with inhalers or epipens please also do this and we will discuss specific arrangements for your child.
Thank you for your continued support.
