General Information


  • The children will begin the day at 8.45am entering through the Y2 classroom door (at the side of the school)


Morning breaktime is at 10.15am-10.30am


Lunchtime is at 11.30am-12.30pm


Afternoon breaktime is at 2.00pm-2.15pm


Hometime is at 3.15pm - the children will leave from the Y2 classroom door onto the playground. Please could parents/carers wait on the football playground (playground nearest the gates). Please give us a 'wave' particularly at the start of the year as we get to know you, so we can see who is collecting each child.


  • Where you have siblings with different start times, please bring them to school together at the earlier start time and pick them up at the later time. They must however, enter through their separate entrances. 

  • Children must wear clean PE kit or similar sportswear to school on Thursday and Friday as we will not be getting changed at school. 

  • Water bottles must be filled each morning and labelled with names. After lunch, children will be given the option of refilling water bottles with the help of their adults. 

  • Children should only bring a small bag if they need to, with their reading book and reading record once they receive it in September. The children will only have one peg for their coat and bag. Lunch boxes/bags will go on a shelf in the cloakroom. They will also be provided with their own stationery. 

  • Please can you ensure all items of clothing are named, so we can allocate any items that are left at the end of the day to the right child!

SATS Evening for Parents/Carers

Timestables Rockstars, Seesaw, Twitter


Timestables Rockstars has been set up for all of the children and their logins are inside their Reading Journal. If you should lose the login codes, please let us know!


The children will focus on using their knowledge of multiplication and division facts for 2, 5, 10 in the Autumn Term. This will be added to in the Spring Term with 3's and 11's. In the Summer Term 4's and 6's will be added too.


The children will complete short timed games to practise their skills and where they earn coins to purchase Rock Star outfits and guitars! We will explain everything to the children about how to play and send home some information for you to read through.


Seesaw is the platform for the children's homework, any additional learning at home, celebratory events etc. We will send home new logins at the beginning of the year, however, if you should need a new login during the year, please let us know. We will from time to time put messages for parents/carers onto the Family Announcements section in addition.


Twitter will be used by the teachers and teaching assistants to upload pictures of work, activities, special events for you to view at home. This will enable you to see some of the exciting things we are doing in school.
