Welcome to Apple Class

Apple Class Team

  • Mrs Charles (Teacher)

  • Miss Bailey:  (Teaching Assistant)

  • Miss Brown: (Teaching Assistant)

  • Mr Rouse (Forest School). 


Thank you very much for supporting our school reading programme.

Could you please make sure that your child’s book and reading diary are transported to and from school in a book bag daily - to keep them clean and safe.

Book bags are available from the school office.    


Monday afternoon

On a Monday afternoon Miss Bailey will be teaching Handwriting and Multiskills to Apple Class.

Show and Tell

 Every child will be given the opportunity to ‘Show and Tell’ with the class. A reminder list will appear on the door at the beginning of each week.

It would be lovely if you could support your child at home by encouraging them to think about what interesting things they can tell us about their chosen item/ idea/ memory.



Apart from topic related items and show and tell toys- we discourage the children from bringing in toys from home in Apple Class.

Fruit Snacks

Thank you all for your continued support of the healthy snacks rule. We also provide a piece of fruit for every child every afternoon. Please remember NO NUTS for snacks or lunches.

Outdoor clothes

To make the most of all opportunities to play outdoors, could you please ensure that your child has named welly boots in school, and a waterproof coat.

Please ensure that all your child’s clothing is clearly named.​

Forest Fun

We plan to visit the woods on alternate Fridays. 

On these Forest Fun dates, please send your child to school in their school uniform with their ‘Forest Fun’ clothes in a bag.

N.B Welly boots can be stored in our welly boot boxes throughout the term.
