Key Information




Children should put their message books in the box each day. Children will be heard read at least three times per week in class, please support your child at home too (remember to write in the message book when you have heard your child read please).


Please remember your child needs a water bottle for lunchtime and if they have a lunch bag please put an ice pack in during warmer weather to keep food cool.


Please do not put water bottles in book bags as we do not want our books to become damaged.


During the first half term children will be able to choose their lunch when they arrive at the lunch hall. Please look at the menu with your child and discuss what they would like. If you would prefer them to have a certain meal, please write this in the message book.  After the first half term children will be asked what they would like for lunch in the morning during registration, this is to help prevent wastage for class catering who cook our lovely lunches.



Thursday- PE:


Please ensure fully named PE kits are brought to school this week. Children will NOT need pumps until the summer term. All kit should be named and stored in a drawstring bag on your child's peg. Please practise dressing/ undressing at home and consider whether your child can manage the clothes they are wearing fairly independently (eg tights, shirt buttons).


Monday - Forest School:


Please ensure your child has named wellies in school. If possible, please can girls wear trousers rather than skirts/ dresses for forest school sessions.


We consider ourselves partners in your child's learning.

At Harvington C.E. First school we have an open door policy which means we are always ready to help and discuss anything concerning your child's welfare and education.


Let's Count up to Ten - Counting Song

Learn how to count to 10 with zero zero superhero. Ask your child to teach you the actions that we have learnt in our maths lessons.

Colors Song | Color Words | Rock Your Body to the Colors | Jack Hartmann

Your children will move, dance, sing, bop and rock as they learn twelve (12) of the basic colors. In addition, all the color words rhyme with a fun movement word so your children will hear the movement word, the rhyming color word, and see the color.


We are learning how to form our letters correctly. We will be starting our lowercase letters on the line starting with a tick and ending with a flick! Please encourage this at home too!
