Reception Class J
Welcome to the Reception class page.
For more information about transition and to meet your teachers virtually please visit the 'New Starters' page.
We are so excited to meet you in September and hope you have a lovely Summer. School is open on Thursday 2nd September. Please line up outside the year 3 classroom against the railings. Mrs Reid and Mrs Whittaker will come out to collect you.
In Autumn term we will be learning about the people who help us. We are hoping to have a visit from the fire service, PCSO and even a vet. We are also hoping to visit a local farm.
We spend lots of time in our lovely outdoor area so children will need to bring coats and water bottles to school every day. If it is wet children can bring wellies. In the Summer children can bring hats and sun cream. Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled.
We are a Read Write inc school and we work very hard to support your child to become a reader who loves books. To support your child please read every night at home and sign the diary. A book bag must be in school every day to enable us to read with your child and change their book. Children will be sent home with a book after the first week at school.
In Maths children will be working on number recognition, counting and organising number. We are also learning about the same and different.
We are also starting to think about the way numbers are organised and how to count more and less.
We will also be looking at time and our daily routine.
Homework is sent out on a Thursday to be completed and returned on Monday.
Children have PE on a Monday so a full labelled PE kit must be in school on this day and will be returned home for cleaning.
Please help to encourage your child to dress and undress at home independently
as this will help them during PE sessions.
Resources to support your child at home
