Swimming for all children is on a Friday. On this day, please ensure your child has a named swimming costume/trunks, swimming hat, towel and googles (optional). Due to Carroty Wood's health and safety policy, children must have a swimming hat in order to participate. Each class will take it in turns to travel to Carroty Wood on the coach and participate in their swim lesson.
Due to time restraints in the afternoon, one class will have an early lunch and travel to Carroty Wood during lunch. Every member of this class will require a packed lunch for Friday. In Terms 3 and 4, 3 Nutmeg will have the early lunch and they will need a packed lunch. In Terms 5 and 6, 3 Damson will have the early lunch and require a packed lunch.
Homework Diary - The homework diary that your child will receive is intended to be used as a communication tool between parents and staff for homework, reading or general enquiries. We will endeavour to check the homework diary every day so please encourage your child to have it in school with them every day. If you have any concerns you wish to raise which are more personal or require a more in depth response then please write a separate letter to your child's class teacher.
If your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, please inform the class teacher or write a note in their homework diary. Thank you.
Uniform - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. P.E. kits must be in school every Wednesday when the children will have PE with MSporti. Swimming Kits must be in school each Friday (unless otherwise notified). Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months. Please encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.
Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form which is kept in the school office.
