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 information that may come in handy, but do please send us an email 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.
Our PE days are Monday and Friday. 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 Wednesdays. Keep an eye on our class board to see if it is a group A or B week.
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.
We encourage the children not to bring in things from home such as a special teddy or toy. We would hate for these special things to get lost or broken. They can also cause a distraction too from the children's learning.
On occasion we may invite children to bring in something but we will always inform you of this first.
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 etc.
Our learning this half term- Summer 1 2022
As so many children have been fascinated with finding different bugs and beasties during their forest school sessions, we thought it would be great to focus our quest on this. We hope you don't mind minibeasts too as we are sure the children will be spotting them at home and showing you all sorts of creepy crawlies.
Please download the document below for our new quest....
'A Bugs Life'.
Instead of bringing sweet treats and cakes in for your child's birthday, which we are unable to give out at school (due to allergies and dietary needs) you are very welcome to donate a book to our class library instead if you wish to.
Inside the cover we like to write who the book is from and the date it was given.
Below is a link to our class book wish list if you would like to do this.
