Welcome to a new and exciting year in Reception!
We are really looking forward to getting to know you all this year. Your children are settling in well and getting used to the new routines.
Children will begin the day with Phase 2 phonics, then literacy, and maths before lunch. We will also read with your child twice weekly, and encourage parents/carers to do as much as they can at home. Our new topic “Who am I?” will provide fantastic opportunities for children to acquire new knowledge about different families, and their local community. This will also develop their writing and speech as they discuss similarities and differences between themselves and others. Please share family events and important experiences with the class (photographs or objects brought in).

Please remember to bring in a named water bottle, PE kit (our PE lessons will begin in a few weeks every Thursday morning) and write your child’s name on EVERYTHING!
Book bags should be the small red bags that can easily fit into the class boxes as the back packs are too big!
To help make your child more independent, talk to them about trying different food, show them how to use a knife and fork, and let the begin to get changed for themselves.
We look forward to working together to give your child the best experience of Reception.
Thank you and we look forward to a successful year.
