What else will my child need every day?
- A water bottle You will need to provide your child with a clearly named water bottle containing water, every day.
- An analogue watch Telling the time is not only part of the National Curriculum but is an important life skill that children need to acquire. Teaching pupils to tell the time is best achieved through daily, regular input from an adult, using a real watch or a clock. Therefore, teaching ‘time’ in a block of lessons is an extremely challenging task for pupils (and teachers!) We have noticed that when pupils wear an analogue watch (and parents are engaged in helping their child tell the time) they make better progress. Therefore, we ask that all pupils to please come into school every day wearing an analogue watch. This needs to be inexpensive as the school will not be responsible for any loss or damage that occurs in the school day.
