We have a wonderful team working in our Woodland Reception. Miss McLoughlin, Mrs Connolly and Mrs Zerillo are our lovely class teachers and they are lucky to be supported by the fantastic Mrs Millward, Miss Martin, Miss Cameron and Miss Hornsby. At the moment we are lucky enough to also have Mr Collins who is working in Reception whilst he completes his teacher training.
If you have a child in Reception, here are some things that you need to know:
Toast money is £1 per week and is collected on a Monday morning for the week ahead.
PE will take place every Friday morning and children need to have their kits in school ready for each session.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor area which we use everyday rain or shine. Could you please ensure that your child is sent to school with appropriate footwear and warm clothing on wet and windy days. It would be ideal if your child could bring a pair of wellies to leave in school to use during wet weather.
School lunches are free for our Reception children, however if you would prefer to send a packed lunch then this is fine also.
RWI sessions start at 9.10am. Could you please make sure your child is on time every morning so that they do not miss this vital reading and writing lesson.
Book bags will be sent home every Monday containing two reading books with a reading record, and need to be brought back in to school every Friday. To make progress in reading, we recommend that you read with your child every day. When you have read, could you please write a short comment in their reading record to tell us how they managed with the books.
To keep you up to date with messages, photographs and videos, we use a great app called Seesaw, which you can download on your phone and receive notifications instantly about your child. You will receive a letter detailing how to access this at the beginning of the year so please set this up as soon as possible.
If you can't access this or need any further information please drop one of us an email.
Could you ensure that school has a current completed data sheet and phone number for your child’s emergency contacts. Please inform the office as soon as possible if there are any changes to phone number, address or list of people who may be collecting your child.
Please check back to our page regularly, as there will be lots of photographs for you to see!
We are looking forward to a fun filled, exciting year with your little ones.
Thank you for your continued support.
