Reception 2021 - 2022
We hope that you have had a lovely Easter break and are ready for the final term in Reception which will undoubtedly very busy!
SUMMER TERM 1
In the first half of the Summer Term, our learning in Reception will be mainly based around our focus text ‘The Journey Home’ and the forthcoming Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Please look at the Curriculum Letter in our files to download section below as this will give you just some idea of the activities we will be enjoying and give you opportunities for you to talk to your child about the different topics they are learning about.
MORNING DROP OFF:
Everyone should arrive between 8.50am and 9am. Please come down the driveway with your child and they will then enter school via the playground. Anyone arriving late (after 9am) should go to the school office where they will be let in the front door.
Children should be collected at 3.20pm from the playground just outside the Reception outside area.
Children may now wear summer uniform. For details, please visit the 'Parents' tab of the website and look at the 'uniform shop' - 'school uniform guide'. It is essential that ALL uniform is named.
WHAT TO BRING INTO SCHOOL:
Water bottle – named and filled with clean water each day.
Coat or hat - (depending on the weather) which must be named.
PE Kits - PE kits will be sent home at the end of the half term (if they get very dirty we will send them home before!) Our PE days are currently Wednesday and Friday. To avoid us sending home someone else’s belongings, please can you ensure that you label all of your child’s school clothing. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to match up the correct clothing to the child when they all look the same!
Spare underwear – Please put spare underwear in the PE bag just in case of any accidents!
Sun-cream – As the weather is getting warmer and the children are outside for long periods during the day, please ensure that you apply sun-cream before you send your child into school. They may bring in a named bottle of sun-cream if you feel that they need to top up during the day.
You may also bring the following, if you wish:
A packed lunch in a named lunchbox, if your child is not having a school meal. Please note that Reception and KS1 children are all entitled to a free school meal.
WHAT NOT TO BRING:
Snack - as free fruit and milk is available for our children at morning break.
Toys or items to 'share'.
TAPESTRY LEARNING JOURNAL
Make sure that you continue to look at your child’s Learning Journey via the Tapestry website; this will keep you up to date with what they are learning in school. Please remember that you can add your own comments, photos and videos of what your child is doing at home onto Tapestry. We love to read all about the exciting things that have happened at home and all of the WOW moments you notice.
This half term we would like to invite mystery readers to read a story to the children via Zoom or in person. The children would love parents and family to be involved in our learning in this way. If you would like to take part in this, please let us know and we will set up a time that is suitable for you.
Your support at home really does make a huge difference. Don’t forget that we are here for you as well as your son or daughter. Please do not hesitate to make contact no matter how small you may think the issue may be.
