Welcome to Reception!
Your teacher this year is Mrs Booth. We will be supported by the amazing Mrs Jackson and the wonderful Mr Molly! We will be doing lots of exciting things this year so please keep visiting our page to keep up to date.
We will be encouraging children to become independent in sorting out their belongings when they come into school in the mornings. This will include hanging up their coat and bag, taking out reading books and placing them into the basket and putting their water bottle on the shelf. We have found the sooner they do this independently, the easier they settle.
Our main priority for the first weeks of term is for children to settle in and feel happy and safe in the classroom environment. We will spend time teaching and embedding hygiene and hand washing routines and observing and getting to know children to identify their interests and likes and dislikes. This will inform planning for each child’s further learning.
If you have any queries or information that you feel we need to know for the day, please do not hesitate to speak to us.
PE will take place on a Wednesday. Children will need to come into school wearing their full PE kit.
We will send home a reading book in the first couple of weeks with a separate letter giving more information.
Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time in the Foundation Stage. This system allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and record learning and development in and outside of the classroom to create a 'whole' picture of your child.
We ask that you record and share any development in your child's progress, development and learning which we will celebrate in class with your child.
If you have any problems with Tapestry please speak to Mrs Booth who will be happy to help.
