Welcome to Reception! The children have all settled into class well and we have enjoyed getting to know them. They have been busy getting to know our classroom, practicing being independent and learning our carpet rules. The children are becoming more confident in changing their shoes for wellies when going on the grass in the garden. The children have all been positive about school and we are very proud them. Next week children will be in school 9.00 – 2.50.
Next week our story of the week will be Owl Babies by Martin Waddell. We will be:
Thank you to parents who have sent in a photo of the children with their family to share with the class. Please send this in by Friday 18th September so we can draw a picture of our family the week after next.
Next week we will start our ‘Star of the day’. Children will get chosen randomly by pulling a lolly stick out of a pot and not by merit. They get to wear a special badge, go first in our line and complete jobs for the teacher. A certificate will go home at the end of the day with compliments on the back. These compliments are given to them by classmates and teachers. Please reassure children that they will all get a turn.
Children have been put into insect groupings that they will use throughout this year. We have Bumblebee, Ladybird, Grasshopper, Caterpillar and Butterfly. These are random groupings.
Dates for the diary:
17th September at 2.00pm Reception Praying In Service: This will take place in the hall with the vicar welcoming the children by giving them a book and a homemade PE bag. The vicar, Deborah Snowball, will remain socially distanced throughout. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions parents cannot attend in person so we are setting up a Zoom meeting that parents can watch. Zoom details to follow.
24th September at 1.00pm: Meet the Teacher Q&A. I will send a PowerPoint presentation about the Reception year, including phonics and reading. This will be with you by 18th September. The Q&A will then offer a chance to ask any questions that were not answered.
Reminders: Please send wellies and spare clothes, if you have not already.
Have a lovely weekend and fingers crossed for some sunshine.
