Welcome to the
Week ending 17th September
Our First Week in Reception
A big welcome to all our lovely new children and parents.
This week we have been continuing to settle in and having fun. It was great to see the two groups come together as a whole class.
On Thursday and Friday this week the children stayed for lunch and they enjoyed collecting their lunches and playing with friends from other classes. Thank you parents for choosing your child’s lunches as this helped prepare the children and allowed lunch to run smoothly.

A reminder that our

Miss Hammond has asked for the children to come to school dressed in their PE kits ready for their lesson each Friday. The children will stay in their PE kits for the rest of the day.
Your child’s PE kits includes:
Black/Navy Shorts or Joggers (please check the weather for the day as your child will be outside at lunchtime)
Trainers NOT plimsoles (preferably velcro)
Please remove your child’s jewellery before coming to school.
Next week we will be learning to match numbers, shapes and colours..
Daily reading at home is an essential learning tool. Try to find the time to read to your child everyday and talk about the pictures in the book, encouraging your child to explain what is happening. Talking to your child is the most valuable part of home learning to develop and build your child’s vocabulary.
Encouraging your child to draw and colour will help their pencil control and writing skills. Also encourage and help your child to use scissors at home, this will develop their fine motor control too, so get busy cutting and sticking!!
