P.E. days

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your children to school wearing their PE clothes on these two days.

Upcoming events

We continue to try and be as open, supportive and welcoming to parents and carers as possible. As part of this ethos, we hold numerous events for parents and carers throughout the school year but you may wish to note these ones:


2:30pm to 3:10pm on Wednesday 27th September – Reception class parents and carers are invited to come into school to learn how we teach literacy


2:30pm to 3:10pm on Wednesday 4th October – Reception class parents and carers are invited to come into school to learn how we teach numeracy


8:55am to 9:25am on the first Friday of the month (Friday 6th October, Friday 3rd November and Friday 1st December) – Reception, year 1 and year 2 parents and carers are invited to come into your child’s class to read with your child.


8:55am to 9:45am on Thursday 19th October – All parents and carers are invited to come into school to learn about how we teach PE. This will include you having the opportunity to see a PE class in action.

Planned trips

All our children will be visiting our local libraries. This is a fabulous opportunity to continue to nurture our children’s interest in the world around them and introduce them to a space where books enrich their knowledge. They will also learn more about their local community and work alongside librarians who can share the myriad of exciting activities that our libraries have to offer.

We also have a trip booked to the farm, which is always popular with the children.

  • 18thOctober - Moulsecoomb Library
  • 8th May - Blackberry Farm

You can discuss the curriculum with your child

The overview for our learning this half-term is ‘ALL ABOUT ME’. This will focus around a number of books: All Kinds of People, All About Me, Super Duper You and All Welcome, Starting School (fiction stores). These will help the children to settle into school and begin to learn about how we are unique and special in our very own way. We will begin to learn and celebrate our similarities and differences:

Please spend a few minutes chatting with your child and ask them some simple questions such as: What is your name? How old are you? What is your favourite colour? What is your favourite toy? What food do you like to eat? Do you have a special interest or hobby? Where is your favourite or most special place? What colour are your eyes, hair and skin? What makes you happy? What makes you sad? What makes you laugh? What are you good at?

It would be great if you write your child’s ideas, questions and comments in the speech bubble below and return this back to the Turtle Class team:
