Welcome to Reception.
The children have adapted extremely well to life at school. We are very pleased and proud of how well the children have settled and come into school leaving parents at the school gates. The children are beginning to make some lovely new friends in the Cats and Monkeys classes.
Our Topic for the first half term is ‘All About Me’ where we will be learning about ourselves, our families and people who help us. The children will be able to access various activities across the classrooms and outside, catering for all areas of the curriculum.
Please can you send named baby photographs of your children which we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please also complete your child’s proud star for us to discuss their home achievements in class.
The children will be learning about one another and making new friends during this first term. They will be exploring new environments and getting used to their new routines.
During Autumn term our P.E sessions will involve being in the hall and exploring the space. We will not need P.E kits during this half-term. Letters will go home nearer the time when P.E kits will be required.
Just a reminder to make sure all your children’s clothes are labelled, particularly jumpers and cardigans, as you can imagine we have a lot of green jumpers. Children will also need a named water bottle that they can bring every day.
We ask for any children wishing to have toast and milk for the week to provide the money in a named envelope on a Monday morning.
Toast- £1 week
Milk- free for under 5’s/ £1.25 a week for over 5’s.
Keep an eye out for their weekly ‘Talk Talk’ newsletter which will inform you about weekly topics and any other notices for that week. These will be available to see on class dojo on a Friday.
