     PE Information: 

    We will be continuing P.E lessons in the hall and so all children will need a P.E kit in school, however, lots of our Physical Development at this stage takes place outside and in the classroom too! Fundacats takes place on Thursday mornings from 9am until 10am. Please make sure your child’s PE kit is named. I will let you know when your child needs Trainers.

    Possible visit /visitor/themed day linked to our Dinosaurs topic. To be confirmed.

    We will take part in the RSPB’s Little Schools Birdwatch.


    Notes from class teacher:

    We may on occasion send work home related to these topics and would be grateful for your support in completing any tasks set. 

    Also please read at home with your child each night and keep us informed with how this is going on by writing in the planner.

    Please can you send in a water bottle each Monday. Bottles will be sent home on a Friday to be washed.



    Each child at St Thomas’ has a Numeracy and Literacy target. These are usually set at the beginning of each term. Your child will be given relevant targets when they have had the opportunity to settle into school life. Your child’s targets will then be discussed at parents evening.

    There will be a Reception Literacy and Numeracy information evening on 27th September and Parents Evening is on 3rd November where we will discuss your child’s progress in detail. However, if you have any concerns or need extra 

    information in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch by phone or speak to me on the playground where I/we will endeavour to be available each afternoon at the end of the school day.


    Thank you for your on-going support.
