Read Write Inc. - this is the Phonics scheme we use at Leigh to teach your children to read and write. For more information please follow the link below...
Marvellous Me! - Please look out for 'Marvellous Me' messages to keep you up to date with things happening on a daily basis.
P.E. - P.E. lessons are every Tuesday afternoon. Your child should come to school dressed in their PE kit.
Toys from home - We ask that children do not bring toys from home in to school as they become very upset if they get lost or broken. Thank you for your understanding.
Snack - we have a snack area in Reception which the children have free access to every day. They are able to choose a piece of fruit and may have a carton of milk or a drink of water from their water bottles. Every child has their own water bottle which they may drink from throughout the day.
Homework - we send home reading books for you to read with your child at home. We change reading books every Friday. Your child will also be set online reading homework, we monitor this to ensure all children are reading regularly. We also encourage you to read regularly with your child for pleasure to further develop their love of stories and reading.
Making Area - we are always grateful for any resources we can use in our making area such as boxes, cartons, cardboard tubes and yoghurt pots. Thank you.
Naming clothes - we cannot emphasise enough how important it is that every item of clothing your child wears/bring to school is named. Please put your child's name on everything to ensure your child's belongings do not get lost or muddled up with other children's belongings. Don't forget smaller items such as shoes, socks, hats, gloves and scarves! Thank you.
Outside & Forest School - we use our outdoor area every day as part of our curriculum. Please make sure you send your child to school with appropriate clothing. During the Winter they will need a warm, waterproof coat, a hat, scarf and gloves and in warmer weather they will require a sunhat. We visit our forest school every Thursday afternoon. Please send in some wellington boots or old trainers if you can. Thank you.
