Welcome to Reception. We hope that you had a good summer and that like us, you are eager to get started with the new school year. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your children and having an enjoyable Autumn term.
Our Topic this half term is ‘You, Me and Us’. This will give us a chance to really get to know your child and for your child to learn about other members of their class and the teachers. We will be encouraging children to tell us about their families and their culture as well as exploring their learning environment and developing their investigation skills through a variety of fun activities.
In the first few weeks, the teachers will be looking to see what the children already know and what activities they enjoy. Along with our observations of your child we will also be doing a lot of work focusing on their well-being. The children will be encouraged to talk about their feelings and also be taught the importance of washing hands and how we can keep ourselves healthy. The teachers will then use this information to create an interesting learning environment with a strong focus on developing their communication skills, their physical strength, coordination, phonics and maths.
We look forward to a successful new school year.
