If you are intending to buy a bag for school, ensure that it is large enough to take a drink bottle, a lunch box, a reading folder, library books, jersey (jacket / swimming togs in season)
Children settle in better in the mornings if they are early enough to unpack themselves and have a little play. The buzzer is sounded at 8:55am.
Please telephone the school in the morning if your child is going to be absent.
It is a great help if the children are able to:
Recognise their own name
Manage pencils, crayons, scissors
Manage their own clothes and belongings
Manage the toilet unassisted – boys – urinal
Sit and listen
Follow simple instructions and directions (i.e. do what they are asked)
