Woodland Learning

We are very proud of our ‘Woodland Learning’ offering, where your child will be experiencing a range of new skills in our forest every week. We want you to make the most of every session whatever the weather, so you will need to be appropriately dressed. Please make sure you wear PE/Woodland uniform on your ‘Woodland Learning Day’. 


Class 5W Woodland Learning day is Monday

Your child will also need to bring in waterproof clothes in a waterproofdraw-string bag and wellington boots. As the weather becomes colder they may also want to bring an extra jumper/fleece, an extra pair of warm socks, waterproof gloves and a warm hat.

Please ensure your child does not attend school wearing their wellies and arrives in alternative footwear as this ensures the spread of mud around school is kept to a minimum.

It is essential that you wear appropriate clothing for P.E.  We have two sessions per week, one indoors and the other outdoors.  Children should attend school in their PE/Woodland uniform on PE days.  Black pumps or trainers must be worn for both sessions.  



Class 5W will have PE on Tuesday

Home Learning

It is expected that your child is reading a minimum of 3x per week.  However, you are encouraged to read every day. 


In addition, children should aim to log on to our home learning games which incorporate maths and spellings via Timetable Rockstars, and Spelling Shed.   These educational game platforms are a great way for your child to practise at home whilst having fun.

Code of Conduct

We will be looking at our 3 character traits: Look after yourselfLook after each otherand Look after our School Any children following our code of conduct will be presented with ‘Dojo points’ which will enable them to receive a reward. Any children breaking any part of the code of conduct will be given a warning, which may be followed by a sanction.



At TPS we have a code of conduct that all children are expected to follow. We need your support to implement this.  Please also see our Behaviour Policy.



School Dinners & Snacks

Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 may purchase a school dinner at a cost of £2.10 per day/£10.50 per week, which should be paid for in advance via ParentPay.  Alternatively, children in these years may bring a packed lunch to school if they wish.


Please see lunch menus for further information.

lost property.jpg

Lost Property

Any named items will be returned to your child’s class.   Please ensure all items of uniform are clearly marked with your child’s name (not just initials).  All lost property is collected by each year group and is available for checking at each home time for parents/carers to claim any lost items. If you cannot attend at this time, please speak to your child’s teacher.  Alternatively another parent/carer may claim lost uniform on your behalf.   





how can you help at home icon.jpg

How to Help at Home?

Any additional support at home will hugely benefit your child.  Whether it may be reading, TT Rockstars or spelling practise, just even just 5 minutes a night will make a huge difference. 

Whilst reading with your child, consider asking question which prompt your child to really think about what they are reding.  Below are some examples of questions you could ask:-

  • How can you tell the character ______ is feeling ______?
  • What do you predict will happen on the next page? Why?
  • Does this book have similarities to any others you have read?  How ?
  • Can you summarise what we've read so far?

Any concerns?

If you have any queries or concerns about your child or school, please do not hesitate to discuss these with your child’s class teachers in the first instance.
