Welcome to our page for Early Years children!
Our teachers are: Mrs. Kent and Mrs. MacNeil
We are really excited to welcome all the new children into our Reception classes. Over the next two weeks we will be getting to know all of the children in Reception. We will be establishing our expectations for playing and learning. The children will be learning the rules for our classes and the routines for the day. Each child has an allocated key person. Your child’s key person is their named class teacher. If you have any questions or queries, please direct them to your child’s key person in the first instance.
Our topic this half term is ‘Me and My Family’. Within this, we will be doing activities related to the people who are most important in our lives. Later on in the half term, we will be learning about pets and houses and homes. We will be focussing our English learning on active listening and developing our vocabulary. As part of our topic, please could all children bring in photos of their family and pets. We will use these as part of our ongoing activities.
In Reception, all the adults love books and reading so we will be sharing lots of wonderful books based on our topic. We also enjoy singing and we are going to be learning lots of songs! The children now have many fantastic areas to access, indoors and out. Please do keep asking your child about their day at school. Be warned though, they will be very tired at the end of every day!! We will not start PE lessons until after October half term. It will then be on a Friday and children will need to come to school in their PE kit. House colours have been allocated so children’s tops will need to reflect the colour of their house.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE NAME ALL OF YOUR CHILD’s CLOTHING! They will lose jumpers etc. and it is so much easier to sort through 50 jumpers and give them back to the correct child when they have their name in them. Thanking you in advance.
