Important things to remember
All children are expected to wear the school uniform:
- Grey/black trousers, skirt, pinafore or shorts.
- White shirt, blouse or polo shirt.
- Blue jumper or cardigan.
- Black shoes with laces or securely fastened.
- Girls may also wear a blue check dress.
- The children have the option of purchasing our school tie which we designed with the designer Paul Smith, a past pupil of Beeston Fields.
On Fridays we have P.E. Please remember to keep your P.E. kit in school all week ready for our lesson on this day.
Maple Home Learning Expectations
- Reading Records
These are expected to be in school every day. They will be checked on Mondays. The children are expected to read at least 3 times a week to an adult.
3 times a week = 1 bee star
5 times a week = 2 bee stars
Children will have a x table to be learning every week at home.
Children receive their spellings on Mondays and will be tested the following Friday in school.
- Punctuation and Grammar
Children have access to several practice tests for SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar). They have their usernames and passwords in their Reading Diaries.
Please make sure your child’s name is in all garments brought to school including shoes, bags and coats. Children are responsible for their own garments and equipment.
Please do not send your child to school with any toys or anything of special value to them. We cannot take responsibility for any items that may go missing. We will inform you if we have any special days where toys will be allowed to be brought into school.
Children can bring in 20p daily for the option of buying a healthy ‘tuck’ at playtimes from the school kitchen. Children are responsible for looking after their own money.
Lunch is at 12.00 noon and is followed by a period of outside play, supervised by our midday supervisors. As we are a healthy school, please provide a healthy lunchbox if your child is having a packed lunch.
Please keep the School Office updated with all your current contact details, phone numbers and addresses so that we can contact you directly and keep you updated with all school matters efficiently.
School gates will be open by 8.45am. Children line up in the playground on their coloured spot and wait with their parents/carers for their class teacher to arrive at 8:50am.
Parents should say goodbye in the playground and see their children safely into school.
It is disruptive if children come in late, but if you are late you need to come in through the School Office. Please be punctual. Please remember that school starts at 8.55 a.m.
Y6 children will be dismissed at 3.30pm from the Key Stage Two home-time exit.
