smileyWelcome to the Reception Class Pagesmiley


Welcome back! We hope that you all had a wonderful Easter break with your children; the amazing weather was such a bonus!


This half term our topic is 'A World of Imagination', the children will have lots of opportunities to let their imaginations run free not just in their own play but also when they are writing stories and in the activities we plan for them. We know that they will have lots of lovely ideas linked to this topic and we will make sure that we use these ideas when we are planning learning experiences for them.


As this is the last term of the school year, we are beginning to think about your child's transition to Year 1. In Year 1 the children come into class own their own each morning apart from one morning a week when you are invited in to complete an activity with your child. Therefore, from the week beginning  29th April we will be asking the children to come into class on their own every Monday and Wednesday morning to help them prepare for this change. The other mornings will run as usual and you are welcome to come in with your child and share an activity with them. 


If you have any concerns, however small they may seem, please come and talk to us about these during open registration time or after school so that we can address them and put your mind at rest. Working alongside you  means that we can work together to ensure that your children are happy, settled, confident and achieving their full potential. If  you wish to make an appointment at any time then we can happily arrange this.


Please make sure that you check your child's Tapestry online learning journal regularly to find out more about their learning; Tapestry will also inform you of your child's next steps in learning and of how you can help them with these at home. In addition it will provide you with phonics updates and ideas for supporting your child with phonics and reading at home.
