Welcome to the Reception Class Page
Welcome back, we hope that you had a wonderful half term break with your children and enjoyed some special family time together.
We can hardly believe that the children are now in the final half term of their Reception year; they are becoming so independent now and will definitely be ready for Year 1 in September. Please support us with our new open registration arrangements so that they are confident to come into class on their own; this will help them significantly with the transition to Year 1.
New Open Registration arrangements:
Mondays – open registration, parents/carers welcome to come into class
Tuesdays – children to come into class on their own
Wednesdays - children come into class on their own
Thursdays - children to come into class on their own
Fridays - open registration, parents/carers welcome to come into class
This half term our topic is, 'People who help us'; all of our activities and learning experiences will be focused around this topic. We will use the children's ideas to lead our learning in whatever direction they would like to take it; they will be learning through play and exploration as well as being guided in their learning and completing challenges. Most of all, they will be having lots of fun and we will be making the most of our outdoor environment, especially the paddock now that the weather is improving.
We have arranged for some 'people who help us' to come into school to talk to us about the jobs they do and how they help us. Please look out for Tapestry updates so that you can find out more about our visitors and share your child's learning with them.
Please have a look at the latest newsletter (see below) which will tell you more about what is happening in school over the next half term.
If you have any concerns, however small they may seem, please talk to us about these during open registration or after school so that we can address them and put your mind at rest. Working in partnership with our parents/carers 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.
We are looking forward to a super half term filled with fun, exciting and engaging learning experiences.
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 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.
