Welcome to Class 2....
This is it, the first day of school, the first week of school and the first term at school. Who would have thought that this day would have finally come, and we can’t wait! The transition from home and/or nursery or playgroup is an important stage for you and your child. We want you both to feel safe, secure and welcome in this new environment. We want to give you information about the first year of school for your child and help make it a positive and enjoyable experience.
We believe our school is a place where your child will be able to thrive and feel supported in a caring environment. We have high expectations of behaviour and a well-planned curriculum to make learning fun and meaningful.
If there is anything else you wish to know, or want explained, do not hesitate to ask. We want you to be fully involved in what goes on in the Foundation Stage, because you are an important member of our school community!
This term we will be going into the woods… We will be learning about Robin Hood, Stick man and lots of other exciting people and things!
Just a few notices to help things run as smoothly as possible:
-You can help your children by reading with them as regularly as possible, showing them that it is fun and useful. Reading is a key skill and it starts here in Reception. Please make sure you sign and date the reading record so that we know where they are up to and we welcome your comments.
-Please encourage your child to write purposefully and use numbers to help consolidate everything they have learnt in school!
-We have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday so please make sure the children's bags are in school for those days. Also, please keep checking that they have got everything they need as they will need trainers this term.
-Labels!!!! Please, please, please make sure everything is labelled.
If there is ANYTHING you would like to talk about please come and chat to me and don't forget I'm only a phone call away. Please also be reassured that if I have ANY worries or concerns, I will contact you straight away!
