We are so excited to welcome you to Parrots class and to welcome the children at the start of their journey at Ascot Heath Primary school. Below you will find some useful day to day information. Please do email the office or ask us on the door if you have any questions. We are very happy to chat to you and support you, as we know and understand that this isn't new just for the children, but for some of you too.
Each half term we will share our 'Quest' with you and also share some of our learning on our 'what we have been doing in Parrots' page. We also have a daily activities and useful resources page for ideas to support your child at home.
All PE kit should be kept in school for the half term and we will send it home for a wash at the end.
It is particularly important that on these days any shoulder length hair is tied back and earrings removed.
We use our outdoor area all year round. Something very useful for the children to have in school is a pair of wellies. We do have some spares but often children prefer to wear their own. The children also should bring their coats in every day just in case we have a sudden downpour. During the winter hats, scarfs and gloves are highly recommended. Don't forget to name them.
We are very lucky to have Mrs Ringrose and our lovely wild garden which backs onto our outdoor area. Children will take part in forest schools once a fortnight, rather than once a week. This way the children have a longer session for a whole morning or afternoon rather than a much shorter weekly session. As the weather gets colder and wetter the children will need to bring in clothing that you don't mind getting wet or muddy. e.g. old joggers, waterproof coat, waterproof trousers if you have them. Our forest schools day will be on Thursdays. Keep an eye on our class board to see if it is a group A or B week.
It is very important to us that we work with you to get the best for your child. If you would like to chat to us the best time is after school (unless it is something urgent for that day, then let us know in the morning) or if you contact the office via email or phone and we will make time to see you. The school office are very good at helping to solve any day to day issues such as ordering school lunches, questions about uniform etc.
Please do make sure that all your child's belongings are labelled with their names. This will help us out greatly and save us a lot of time as the children learn to look after their own things. Any lost un-named items are sent to the lost property box in the main reception area at the end of the week.
In the past some parents have provided sweet treats for the class when it is their child's birthday, however we have been unable to do this for some time due to allergies and dietary needs.
If you would like an alternative to this we suggest that you donate a book to our class library. (This is not compulsory.) Inside the cover we like to write who the book is from and the date it was given.
Below is a link for some ideas if you would like to do this.
