Pupils in Year 6 also receive a maths slip every Friday, allowing them opportunities to rehearse and embed their learning. These are always due to be returned the following Monday.
Every class has a weekly library session during which time they can exchange their reading books and ask for guidance and support for their individual book choices from our School Librarian.
Library days for Sycamore and Poplar are Wednesday. Juniper Library day is a Thursday.
- Monday and Tuesday
Please ensure your child comes to school in their correct PE Kit on these days. These must all be labelled clearly with your child’s name (including their shoes).

If your child wears earrings it is easier to remove them before school on these days. Children will be asked to take out their own earrings for PE. If they are unable to do so, they must be covered with micro-porous tape during PE.
Year 6 will attend Forest School on: 10th September, 17th September (for those not at PGL), 24th September and 1st October. Please send the children into school with a change of clothes and footwear for forest school (in a carrier bag). They should come to school in their usual uniform. We will be outside even if it rains so please dress weather appropriately.
All children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink regularly in their classroom and maintain good hydration. Please ensure your child’s name is written clearly on their bottle.
Please provide your child with a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat during their mid-morning break. Parents have the option of ordering a small carton of milk.

A healthy and nutritious lunch will help to boost your child’s energy levels for learning throughout the afternoon. We encourage all our children to eat a hot meal each day. However, if you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child, please remember that Northgate is a ‘nut-free’ school.
