Term 6 has arrived, I can’t believe the children are entering their last term in Reception. All the children have made their own tremendous start to their school careers and we are proud of everybody’s achievements.
We have noticed many children making great progress with their reading. Thank you for all your support in hearing your child read at home. We recommend that children read to an adult at least three times a week - this can just be a page or two not necessarily the whole book - and we ask that you sign the reading diary when you listen to your child. This way children should be able to read at least one book a week. Books can be changed as soon as they are finished. Children should bring their book bag containing their reading book and diary to school each day as we rotate which day they read to us in school. Please remember to check book bags regularly as this is where we will put any letters or other communication to you.
This term we will be visited by Nursery children who will be starting in September. Our current Reception class will become mentors and buddies and have the opportunity to be the experts in preparation for no longer being the youngest class in the school! We are excited about this and hope it will help the children build relationships and make new friends.
Now the Summer is finally here please could you ensure your child has a sun hat in school? We spend increasing amounts of time outside and try our best to be sun safe. Children should come to school with sunscreen already applied and we will top up as necessary. Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school. In order to promote healthy eating and drinking, bottles should be filled with water only (we will replace juice with water). This also helps us to discourage the ants that appear with the sun!
Don’t forget you can upload your own photos and videos from home into your child’s Tapestry file. We very much enjoy seeing what everyone gets up to at home, so please do share your child’s achievements. If you are unsure how to upload to Tapestry please see Mrs France.
If your child is unwell please telephone the school office as soon as possible. If children have vomited or have diarrhoea they must stay at home until 48 hours after the last episode.
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.
