Goodness, term 4 already! This year is flying by!
We are very pleased with our Fresh Air Fridays and have decided to make this a weekly event. On Fresh Air Friday we all go down to the Dell where we sit and listen to a story whilst eating our fruit snack. Following this the children participate in an activity linked to the story. Afterwards the children have an extended time where they can pursue their own learning and interests. We have a great variety of mud artists, engineers, nature watchers as well as amazing imaginations! Fresh Air Fridays end back in the classroom with a cup of hot chocolate and a discussion about what we did using that days photographs shown on the interactive whiteboard. The only time we will not go down to the Dell will be if there are high winds. Should the weather be very wet and / or cold we will come in a little earlier.
We would be grateful if children could have some spare socks as well as their spare change of clothes in school. As we go out in all weathers (and especially enjoy jumping in puddles!) some children are coming back into the classroom with wet feet. If your child has borrowed our spare socks (or indeed anything else) recently we would be grateful if they could be returned as soon as possible as our stocks are dwindling.
We are very impressed with the children’s reading this year and thank you for supporting them at home, it really makes a difference! We recommend children practise their reading at least three times a week with an adult who can record this in their diary. Reading the book more than once will help your child to build up their fluency and give them confidence. Children may change their book as often as they wish, although new books will only be given if the reading diary has been signed by an adult and if your child has their book bag in school. Please note that if your child is not ready to move up a level they may bring a book home more than once.
If your child is unwell please telephone the school office as soon as possible. If children have vomited or have diarrhea they must stay at home until 48 hours after the last episode. Children with coughs and colds shouldn’t be kept off school. We are always grateful for boxes of tissues!
As always if there is anything at all you are worried or concerned about don’t let it fester - please come and talk to us.
The Reception Team.
