Dear Parents and Carers,

It has been lovely meeting your amazing children and getting to know them. As contact with me will be a little difficult with the new rules regarding your access into the school, if you have any questions or comments regarding your child, please contact the school office by phone and I will return your call as soon as I am able. Alternatively, you can contact me directly by email using the following address:  

Once again, I will respond as soon as I am able. 

If you would rather write me a note, please give the note to your child to give to me in the mornings.

Kind regards,

Mrs McNally

We will be having a PE session every Monday and Wednesday. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on these days:

Black shorts or joggers (depending on the weather)

Plain white or purple T shirt (and school jumper, depending on the weather)

Trainers or plimsolls

Thank you.

Mrs McNally


Please read with your child every day for 10 minutes. I will read with your child every week and I'll comment on their progress and targets in their reading record book (Please return your child's reading record book from Pluto class). Can you please sign your child's reading record book 3 times a week to show that your child has been reading at home, Thank you. When your child returns their reading book, it will be placed in quarantine, therefore it will only be changed once a week. Your child can read the same book repeatedly over the week, as they become familiar with the story, ask them questions about the characters and setting.
