Our page will be full of all the exciting experiences from your child's first year at school! You will also find important information about Reception, our current topics and useful website links.
This term our topic is 'Growing'! We will be using our Chicks to structure the beginning of our learning and encourage our independent writing. We will then move on to thinking about the life cycle of a butterfly and how we have grown. In Maths we will continue focusing on ordering numbers to 20 and completing simple calculations; developing this further by thinking about doubling and halving. In Literacy we are going to be independent writers!
Start of the day arrangements - As Reception parents, you may bring your child to our patio area between 8.45 - 8.55am. You will be informed should this arrangement change.
Water Bottles - Children may bring in a named water bottle which they will take home at the end of each day. Please ensure the bottle only contains water - no squash.
Book Bags - The children need to bring in their book bag everyday, as we will be regularly sending home letters and other information. Please ensure your child brings in their reading folder everyday as they will be reading throughout the week.
This year Reception will have a Forest School session every Friday afternoon. In Reception the children are allowed to be in their Forest School clothing for the whole day however they must wear their school shoes until our sessions starts. Please bring their Wellington Boots in a named bag, which will be hung on a peg outside our classroom.
Below is additional information about Forest School and appropriate clothing to wear;
