Welcome to Reception Class 2020-21

Your teachers this year will be Mrs Sherratt and Mrs Ceuppens.

Miss Parrin is our Reception class teaching assistant. 

We are really looking forward to the year ahead and getting to know your child/children.  We feel it is really important to work closely with parents and carers in order to support the children's learning and development. If you have any questions or worries, or if you would like to talk to us about your child's progress, please let us know and we can arrange a time to meet for a chat.

Please have a look at the attached documents at the bottom of this page for information about the learning and development requirements for the Early Years.  We are taking part in the Department of Education's 'Early Adopter' scheme to trial the new EYFS Framework  which will become statutory for all schools in September 2021.  The Letters and Sounds document details the phonics programme we follow and the phonics letter attachment explains how we teach phonics in more detail.

Just a few reminders for the start of the Autumn term:

Drop off time will run from 8.40 to 9.05  and pick up is from 3.10 until 3.30.

Please do not worry about bringing in PE kits for the time being. We will let you know when these are needed.

Toast will be available for snack in the mornings for 20p a day. It would be really helpful if you could send in £1 at the beginning of the week. Please do not send any snacks in from home. Fresh fruit will be available in the afternoons.

Please send your child into school with a named water bottle each day.

Book bags are not allowed in school at the moment and packed lunches should be in a disposable carrier bag.

All clothing, including shoes, must be labelled, otherwise, when things go missing it will be difficult to return items to their rightful owners.

Please do not let your child bring in anything (toys etc) from home.

Thank you for your support

Mrs Sherratt, Mrs Ceuppens, Ms Parrin
