Hello and Warm Welcome
Thanks for visiting the Reception class page. Here we will share information about what the children are learning, general comments and other things. Email us at email@example.com with any questions or comments and we will get back to you. Please look at the page for each week so you know what we will be doing in school. If you need to self-isolate you will find any information on work you can do at home with your child on these pages.
Spring Term 2 - return to school
We are very excited about all the children returning to school on 8th March - we hope the children are too. Some of them may be a little apprehensive as they haven't been in the school environment for such a long time. This is completely understandable and we are planning activities during this week to help them re-adjust. We are sure they will soon settle and enjoy the many activities we have around the unit.
Thank you once again for all your hard work at home with the children and supporting them in their learning. We know these last few weeks have been particularly difficult for many families, each one facing a different situation. Thank you, also, for all your messages of thanks and encouragement - this has been a team effort from home and school and we have made it through.
We will continue to have windows open to help the airflow and minimise Covid-19 risks. Please make sure your child is dressed for colder weather and has a jumper or cardigan. Hopefully, as we enter Spring, the days will become a little warmer.
About Me - Show and tell - to resume next week
Every Thursday, a child from each class will be selected to talk about their family, interest and experience. When it is your turn, you will receive a note in your child's book bag. Please email in some photos that your child can talk about. Make sure it is meaningful and something they know well. e.g. a picture of them on holiday, a toy that they like that came from a special place or person,
Reading at Home
We will continue to change reading books on a Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child's books and reading record are in their book bag each day.
