Useful Information

Morning Routine - The doors open at 8.45am.  The gate will shut at 8.55. If you arrive after this time, please report to the office.


PE - We will have PE on a Tuesday.  We recommend that PE kit stays in school all term and is taken home for a wash during the holidays.


Clothing - Please ensure your child has a coat in school every day.  The children have been allocated a pair of school wellies to wear when it is wet and muddy outside.  Please name all clothing so that lost items can find their way back to their rightful owners.


Bookbags - Please bring your bookbag, reading diary and class library book to school everyday.  We try to change them every week but cannot guarantee that it will be on the same day every week.  There is a box of books just outside the main door should you want to change the book more regularly. All we ask is that you return the read book and record the new title in the orange reading record.     


Cooking - The Kingfishers will get the opportunity to cook on a Wednesday.  4 children cook each week and they make enough to share with the whole class.  Please send in your £6 donation if you have not done so already.  Please inform us of any allergies so that we can plan accordingly. 


Travelling Bears - We have 4 intrepid travelling bears who love to go on weekends away or holidays with the Kingfishers. They have their own passports, so are free to roam the world! If you are planning a trip, you can borrow a bear to accompany you. You can add photos, tickets, drawings to the passport and then share your adventures with the class on your return.  


Popcorn Sheets - The children will occasionally come home with 'Wow' popcorn sheets in their bookbags.  These are for you to record any wonderful things your child does at home.  It could be riding a bike for the first time, moving up a swimming level, helping with washing the car, being really kind and helpful etc.  Anything that makes you feel proud would be perfect!  Completed sheets need to be sent into school to be displayed on our 'Popcorn' wall.  This will enable us to get a fuller picture of your child's skills and strengths.  Once we have a completed popcorn sheet for all the Kingfishers we will celebrate with a popcorn party. 


 Tapestry - Tapestry is an online learning journal system. A learning journal plots the critical moments when your child shows that they have acquired a new skill, knowledge or when they show us something that surprises or delights us!

Staff observe and record your child's progress using a tablet or PC to take photographs and add comments. Parents can contribute to their child's journal too by recording activities they have done at home. Parents can also comment on staff observations and vice-versa!
