Dear parents and guardians,
This year children will be supported by the following teaching assistants; Mrs Cunningham, Mrs Gray, Ms Telford and Miss Cranson.
We will have PE on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure that all children have a labelled PE kit in school. It is advised they leave their kit in school until the half term to ensure it is readily available.
Children will be given homework every Friday. This will be an interactive, fun activity surrounding our learning in class. We encourage your support with this and if any difficulties arise please approach myself or any other member of the Reception team. We ask that homework is returned no later than the following Wednesday to allow time for any misconceptions to be addressed.
Children will also receive a phonics jotter and word wallet. Each week we will let you know which sounds we have been learning for you to practise at home. We will also provide you with words to read at home.
We go outdoors no matter the weather. Please consider providing your child with a pair of named wellies to leave in school all year round.
We are always collecting cardboard boxes, cardboard tubes, bottle tops etc for our junk modelling area. If you have any spare at home, we would be so grateful if you could bring them in for us!
Reading books will be handed out over the Autumn term. Your child will be allocated certain days for their reading book to be returned to school. We encourage children to read as often as possible at home to support fluency and confidence.
Please fill out WOW slips for your child, they are an extremely important part of your child’s learning journey.
Please add entries to your child’s All About Me book. You may include anything you and your child get up to at home, however big or small! This book should not become a burden but instead an enjoyable project for you and your child to add to as frequently as possible!
If you have any worries or concerns please see a member of the Reception Team.
Thank You, Miss Lawson (Reception Class Teacher)
