What will your child need?
We do ask that children in the EYFS stage of St Anne’s wear the school uniform polo shirt and jumper but parents can choose suitable bottoms for their child.
- Light blue polo shirt
- Burgundy school jumper or cardigan (this does not have to have the school logo)
- Grey trousers/skirt/pinafore/jogging bottoms
- Suitable/flat shoes
EYFS children are outside in ALL weathers so please ensure that your child has a suitable coat and footwear for the winter weather and sun cream and a hat in the summer.
Please send a spare change of clothes in your child’s bag. EYFS staff focus on independence and ask that you encourage your child to dress/undress as independently as possible.
Reception Class children
- Children will need a book bag. These can be purchased from our school office
- PE kit should be placed on your child’s peg
- A named water bottle
- A named waterproof coat
Get label happy
You can minimise losses by encouraging your child to look after their own belongings, putting things away in bags and hanging items on specific pegs. When it comes to labelling clothing, maybe ask your child to choose a specific symbol that is their own unique mark, perhaps a smiley face or a star, to help them recognise their own belongings at a glance. It is especially useful to add a key-ring to your child’s book bag. Remember that other children in the setting will be wearing similar clothing and shoes of the same size and so name labels are the only way of truly identifying which items belong to each child.
A great way to hear lots of wonderful things about your child is to download the app ‘Marvellous Me’.
‘MarvellousMe’ tells you about the wonderful things that your child is learning, and pings you when they’ve been praised for good work or a great character skill. It makes you smile, feel proud, and inspires better home learning support and encouragement. Miss Taylor will issue you with a joining code when your child starts school.
‘Class dojo’ helps to support behaviour and our children love to achieve green dojos for good or kind behaviour!
