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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments and we will get back to you.
The children have settled in so well and are starting to play nicely alongside each other, take part in our activities and challenges as well as follow the school's routines and rules. We have been particularly impressed with the children's play and collaborative skills- they really have had a flying start.
You have all been wonderful and patient with our new routines and rules. We are all doing our best to run the school in a way that is safe, learning centered and also enjoyable. Make sure to use the hand sanatiser as you come through our gates to get the children in quicker. We are working on making things faster and more efficient.
About Me - Show and tell
Every Thursday, a child from each class will be selected to talk about their family, interest and expereince. 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 be sending home reading records and books later this half term. It is important you read books to your child everyday and give them lots of reading experiences.
The first books they will get will have no words. The children need to get used to turning the pages, looking at hte pictures to understand the story and being an independent reader. As the children learn more sounds, they will be given reading books.
We will be regularly updating this page so please check regularly for extra information..
