Well done to all  Fireflies and Bumblebees for settling in so well during their first couple of weeks in school. We have made lots of new friends and have had so much fun! We look forward to a super year together frown

Important dates for the Diary.

Reading   

We really value the support that our parents give us with their child’s reading and recognise how much this helps with their progress. We recommend that children read for a short time as often as possible at home

 

Reading Diaries   

All children have a reading diary to keep in their book bags. Please could we ask parents to sign the diary each time they read together and add a short comment if they wish. When your child reaches 25/50/75/100/150/175/200 nights they will receive a certificate and sticker!

 

  Changing Books  

Children will be given a new reading book on a Monday and Thursday if they have read at home.

 

Key Words and Phonics

Children will bring home key words and letter sounds books to practise with you at home. Please keep these in their book bags at all times.

 

  Reading in School   

Children will be heard to read regularly by an adult both individually and in groups. We therefore ask that book bags are brought into school everyday!

 

Phonics information session

Tuesday 27th September 8:45am in the school hall

Please feel free to come along to this session for more information about how we teach Phonics and support and guidance with reading books.

 

 

 Maths  

 

Please take the time to work on your number formation books and rhymes at home.

 

Other information

 

 

Clothing

In Reception children have continuous access to the outdoors.  We would be grateful if your child could have a waterproof coat and some wellies in school at all times. Please ensure that all clothes have your child's name on them. It is so much easier to find the owner of lost property when it is labelled clearly.

 

PE

PE is EVERY Friday, please remember to bring in your PE kits. This includes black shorts and jogging bottoms, a white T shirt, daps and trainers. PE kits can be left in school and will be sent home every half term to be washed.

 

 

Pots of Gold

In Reception we value your contribution to your child's learning.  We would love to hear about all of your children's achievements outside of school, from getting a medal at football to learning to ride their bike!  Use our POTS OF GOLD and send them in with your child, we will celebrate their achievements and display it on our  wall for all to see!

 

Toys

Please can we ask that all toys from home do NOT come into school as they children are losing them and some are getting broken. Thank you ! Any toys that do come into school will be put into the cupboard for the rest of the day.

Check List For Parents:

  • Please remember to name all of your children's clothes/coats/P.E. clothes

  • Please bring in your child's book bag daily with their book and reading record

  • Wellington Boots and P.E. bags should be in school
