Welcome to Reception
Miss Mitchell and Miss Brennan are looking forward to working together with you for the rest of the year and getting to know your child, their interests and all of the things they can do.
As parents or carers, if there is anything you are concerned about we hope that you will feel comfortable approaching us to discuss such matters. As an Early Years Foundation Stage team, we want you and your children to feel happy and comfortable with our setting and if there are areas that you have concerns about we want to work with you to rectify these.
A few little reminders, please ensure that your child has a book bag and a PE kit. These can be purchased from the main office.
We have started PE lessons which run on a Tuesday afternoon and so for health and safety reasons it is vital that all children have the correct PE kit, this consists of a red PE top, navy shorts and indoor pumps.
Book bags are important for all children to have as we have started sending home conversation books, and will be sending home number activities and words to learn. We aim to change books on a Monday and a Friday. Having a book bag means that everything is contained in one place and that all children feel part of our school.
We look forward to working with you all as the year progresses.

Reception loved their American style dinner! We worked hard at designing our own American flag table cloth and loved eating hot dogs, burgers, chips and home-made lemonade!
How we became Pirates!
Reception have been learning all about Pirates! In class we have been reading 'How I became a pirate' by Melinda Long and David Shannon. Reception decided they wanted to be pirates too! We have made pirate ships indoors and outdoors, eye patches, pirate hats, and hooks for our hands. We have also made a cardboard pirate ship and love pretending we are shipwrecked! We write SOS messages in a bottle and hope someone will come rescue us. We have received letters and party invitations from Captain Braid Beard as well hidden treasure maps. Learning about Pirates is so much fun!
