Welcome to Reception! 

The children have settled really well into their new classes. They are picking up new routines quickly and we are really proud of how well they have managed. From 24th September all children (unless requesting part time) will be in full days.

Now that the children are familiar with the classroom environments and staff, we ask parents and carers to encourage  independence when coming into the classroom each morning and saying goodbye.

This week…..

We are thinking about celebrations.

We will be drawing and writing about our birthdays/ special celebration for us to develop our communication and mark making skills.

We will be making playdough cakes,  counting candles and talking about ages to encourage mathematical development.Our inside and outside learning environments will provide plenty of opportunities to explore the traditions of birthday celebrations as well as looking at harvest and how that is celebrated around the world.

We will still be supported in making friends and getting to know our new classmates.
