Our class start time is 9.00am and finish time is 3.15pm.


Each day please send your child to school with:
•    A water bottle with your child’s name clearly labelled.

•    A piece of fruit for snack time in a clearly labelled container.


Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name also.



Weekly Organisation
Every Monday
Please return reading books to school every Monday.  
Your child will read with us each week in school and it is beneficial for their learning if they could read as much as possible with you at home also.

Every Wednesday
Reading books will be sent home from school every Wednesday.

Every Friday

Please send your child to school wearing their PE kits to school every Friday.  Please ensure that the kit is suitable for going outside such as sensible trainers, joggers or leggings and a hoody and is also clearly labelled with their names.



Newton Primary uses the Dojo rewards system.

 Dojos are given to children throughout the day for various things such as excellent effort in their tasks, beautiful manners and helping others.  Every fortnight the 3 children with the most Dojo points get to go to the Dojo shop where they choose a small prize.  

In our class we also have a star of the week chosen by Mrs. Gander and Mrs. Jones and also a pupil star of the week chosen by the pupils.
