Welcome to Cherry Class and the exciting start to your time at Booth Wood Primary School. We are looking forward to getting to know you all.

Things to remember:

  • Please ensure that your child brings their book bag. We will be giving out reading diaries and books during the first week of school.

  • Please ensure that all of your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name so that we can try our best to return any items if lost.

  • Your child will not require their PE kit in the first few weeks, however you may want to bring it for them to keep on their peg ready for when we start PE, which will be on Thursdays.

  • Please bring a set of named, spare clothes for your child to keep on their peg - we sometimes get a little messy in Cherry Class!

  • If the weather forecast is warm, please provide a sun hat and apply sun cream at home before coming to school.

  • Friday mornings is Forest School. Your child will need to come to school in suitable outdoor clothing such as jogging bottoms and a long sleeved jacket. We have wellies for everyone at school but you may send your child with their own to change into if you wish. As the weather turns colder and wetter, all children will be provided with full waterproofs to keep them clean and dry.

On arrival, children will self register by finding their named pebble and putting it in the pot, finding their peg to hang up their coat and putting their book bag in their tray. The children will then find a self chosen activity in the classroom. During the early days we will support the children with this, before encouraging independence as they become more settled and more familiar with the routine.

At the end of the school day we will let the children out as we see parents/carers. If your child is being collected by someone else please let us know.

If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
