Welcome to Whitelands Park School!

We hope that you have settled into school and are ready for a busy half term. This term our topic will be 'Sparkling Celebrations' . There are lots of exciting things to look forward to such as our Christmas lunch, parents evening and our Christmas Production! Please see the curriculum summary attached. 

Waterproofs and Wellies

We are very excited about all of the new equipment in our outdoor area and cannot wait to use it. As we will be outside in all weathers, please could your child bring in a named pair of wellies and a waterproof. 

Dates for your diary

Tuesday 12th November: Parents Evening (3:40-6:00)

Thursday 14th November: Parents Evening (5:30-8:00)

 

Planner

Your child will be coming home with a planner which you will need to check every day. We use the planners as a useful communication tool between school and home.

 

Reading 

Please share a book with your child every day. It makes such a difference to their progress. Please record their reading in the planners as the children are rewarded with extra playtime.

 

PE Sessions

Holly - Thursday 

Willow - Thursday

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times. If your child wears earrings please make sure that they can remove them independently or leave them out on PE days as they will not be allowed to wear them during PE sessions. Please ensure your child's PE kit and school uniform is clearly named.
