From September, every Thursday the children in Nursery and Reception will come to school wearing their PE kit ready for Dance.
PE kit includes –
The plain black trainers that your child wears for PE can also be worn during the school week with their uniform. This can save money rather than needing to buy two pairs of shoes as we know how fast children’s feet can grow!

Our EYFS at St Brigid's
The Early year’s foundation stage is made up of Nursery and Reception classes. We work closely together to provide a caring and stimulating learning environment to meet the needs of each individual child. We want the children to enjoy their first experience of school life and give them enthusiasm to begin their learning journey.
Please ensure your child arrives promptly, this is particularly important to allow your child time to settle and complete the morning activity before group time. Children are provided with a coat peg and are encouraged to take off and hang up their own coat up. We encourage independence at every opportunity. Parents can help by encouraging independence with their child's self-help skills at home -
WAYS OF HELPING YOUR CHILD TO BECOME MORE INDEPENDENT
Nursery and Reception share a well-resourced outdoor area and we offer a free-flow system. This means that children can choose whether they want to access activities indoors and outdoors. The same learning opportunities are available outside, but are presented in different ways, usually on a larger scale. The school provides waterproof jackets and pants to ensure children can enjoy the outdoor environment in every weather. Parents are asked to bring in a pair of wellies which can stay in school.
We have Dance every Thursday morning, please ensure your child’s uniform is clearly labelled.
All reading books are changed on a Thursday, please ensure your child’s book is in on this day in the morning.
Homework will be provided to parents every fortnight; the homework will reflect the whole curriculum and will focus on quality talking time at home.
We encourage parents to provide their child with a spare set of clothes to keep in school in case of any accidents.
From a very early age, children enjoy having books – to look at themselves and to have stories read from.
