Welcome to Reception!
Miss Mitchell, Miss Brennan and Miss Shields 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 the correct uniform, a book bag and a PE kit. These can be purchased from the main office. Please ensure that everything is clearly labelled to avoid any confusion.
We have started PE lessons which run on a Monday 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 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.

Each morning, Reception self-register by finding their name in the classroom, writing and decorating it, then hanging it on our registration tree. This helps our teachers know who is in school that day. This alos helps us to recognise our name and write some of the letters in our names. Some children can write their names all by themselves!
