A warm welcome to all the new Reception children. We are excited to meet you on Wednesday 2nd September. Please only bring a labelled book bag and a labelled water bottle to school this week. PE bags will only need to come to school on PE days. Please bring a coat and hat to suit the weather.
There will be no snack this week so please bring in a healthy snack choice for your child for this first week back.
We will be starting this term learning all about Harvest and the importance of a healthy diet. Children will be learning new songs all about this season and we hope to be able to do a Reception class Harvest celebration.

White Rose Glossary
In Maths children are continuing to work 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 are now looking at time and our daily routine. We have also been learning about capacity through our water table. We have filled different sized containers to see what we can find out.
Please remember to bring a sun hat and sun cream as the weather gets warmer.
Please could your child wear a suitable waterproof coat to school
and bring wellies that can be left on their pegs
– we do like to play in the water and we want to avoid soggy feet
Also remember that reading every day is very important for your child and will help them develop skills
in listening and attention as well as reading skills.
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.
Children will need to bring in a bottle with water (not juice) clearly marked with their names,
so that they can help themselves to a drink when they need one.
