Reception

Welcome to Term 2!

We have had a fantastic start to the school year so I’d like to say thank you for all your support and hard work. Please continue coming in and reading with your child every morning if you are able. 

It has been great to see so many of you taking up the  opportunity to hear your child read with Mrs Flood our Reading Recovery Teacher.  If anyone would still like to sign up then please let me know and we will arrange a date.

Online diary

Please logon to your child’s diary if you have already done so.  It is lovely for the children to know that you are seeing the learning they are doing in class. Please put any great activities that you do at home on there too that you would like to share with us!

Diversity Month

We’ve been celebrating Diversity Month this month, reading books from around the world and thinking about different jobs, communities and languages. We all dressed up to celebrate diversity across cultures and jobs! We had great fun playing and acting out different jobs in role play and construction. It was a great day of play!

We have been having fun getting to know each other, learning about the rules and routines and exploring the new classroom – inside and outside!

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
