Welcome to Reception
In reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We are able to access both indoor and outdoor environments and enjoy playing and learning together. We are currently settling into our new classes and routines of the day and making new friends in our setting.
As well as getting to know each other our first topic is – ‘Ourselves’. We will learn about each others families, our interests,our bodies and how we have changed.
We will continue through the year to look at broad themes and topics, including the seasons and celebrations, to name but a few. In these topics we will aim to follow the children’s interests and ideas, and this may lead us into other mini-topics so be sure to ask your child, and pop back to our page to see our most current learning.
We have an open door policy so please do come and speak to us if you ever have any questions, concerns or just want a catch up.
Need to know
We have P.E. on Tuesday. Children must have a P.E. pumps in school. We have storage for the children to keep these in school.
Home interest books
We will send home your child’s home interest book on a Friday and would like it to be returned to school by Wednesday.
Home phonics books
Your child’s phonics book will be updated every Thursday. We encourage you to practise new sounds with your child every night as this greatly supports their reading and writing.
We are extremely lucky to have forest school everyweek! Children must have a pair of wellies in school every Thursday. They can also be stored in school and we will send them home every half term.
Please follow our class and year group twitter pages as you will see regular update throughout the year.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children more throughout the year 😃
