The Nest Expectations 

  • Children need to read as much as possible at home. This should be at least three times a week. 
  • Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Wednesday. 
  • Children will be expected to take part in adult based tasks. 
  • PE – the children will no longer need PE Kits as we will be doing our running, circuits and heavy work throughout the week.
  • Snacks – if you want to send your child with a snack, they will only need 1 healthy snack a day. We do have fruit for the children in the Nest. 
  • Drink Bottles – please only send water.
