 Helpful Hints...

Here are some helpful hints to do at home to help your child during their school day:

  • Practise writing your name
  • Using cutlery independently
  • Dressing independently
  • Counting in the home e.g. when walking down the stairs and setting the table
  • Looking at letters and number in the environment


Pure Sounds

Please find a link below that shows you all the pure sounds.



On a Monday and Friday, your child should come to school already dressed in their outdoor P.E. kit  with a school jumper/cardigan on.   They will remain in their kit all day and do not  need to bring their uniform to change into.
