Welcome to Red Class

Welcome to Red Class and welcome to our Dunnington Family. We have had a fantastic first week and I am pleased to see the children have settled in so well.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to arrange to meet with me. I am available after school Thursday and Friday, and before school Monday-Friday. You can arrange this by asking me in person or contacting the school office.

Diary Dates

  • Tapestry Meeting - Monday 18th September - 3:30pm



Our topics are a great way of making the learning fun for our children, we use this theme for our free choice activities, it is incorporated into our maths and phonics, along with having one Topic lesson a week. If you do any additional learning at home to support our topic then please feel free to bring in photographs or anything you have made for us to share it with the class.

Children will have reading books sent home from the second week of term. Homework books will then be introduced after October half term. Then key words will start to be sent home after the Christmas break. This is because we want to make it a gradual process so the children so not feel overwhelmed.

Reading books - x2 new books every Tuesday Children should be reading every night at home for 10 minutes.
Homework books - Once every Tuesday This is one practical activity which is fun and engaging for both parents and children.
Key words - Once a week every Friday This will be “tricky” words for the children to learn by sight.


PE / Forest School

PE and forest school are both on a Tuesday afternoon.

  • PE uniform includes a white polo shirt, red shorts and both pumps and trainers

  • Forest school will require wellies and waterproof coat at a minimum



Children are provided with a piece of fruit and milk every break time. If you know your child does not eat all fruit, you are welcome to put a piece of fruit in their bag to ensure that they are having a snack. Every Friday, the children are welcome to bring in a “treat”, such as a bag of crisps or a little bit of chocolate.





Thank you fo an amazing first year and for giving our daughter the very best start to the beginning of her school life. We are incredibly lucky she attends such a beautiful school. - Reception Parent
