Microsoft Teams Tips for Reception parents

laugh Hello Butterflies and Dragonflies! laugh


Welcome to Reception!

  We can't wait to meet you all very soon and get to know you!  We are also looking forward to showing you your new classroom and outdoor area!


Parents/Carers: Please remember to bring in your child's school shoes and ensure they wear their wellies to and from school every day.

Please also bring in any 'All About Me' sheets and other forms you have at home.

Don't forget to check the letter that was sent to you for their settling in session times.

Butterflies Christmas Party

Butterflies had a great time at their Christmas Party. They have definitely got some great dance moves. Merry Christmas to all of you.

To celebrate Black History Month we read the book, 'Big Hair, Don't Care'.  The children have talked about their similarities and differences.  We looked at photographs of Wilfried Zaha and the different hairstyles that he has had over the years.  The children thought of questions that they would like to ask him, we sent him a video and he replied! 


Watch the videos here...

Early Learning Goals - Where the children should be by the end of Reception

The children are getting very competitive and working really hard to learn their Rainbow Words.  Look in your child's yellow reading record to find their words.  


After Rainbow Readers comes...ROCKET READERS - Good luck

We access the outdoor area in all weathers. Look at us in our Rainsuits and wellies.
