Welcome to the Reception Noticeboard

 

We hope you find the following information and photographs useful for keeping up to date with what is happening in your child's class. 

 

Our current topic for the Summer Term is 'Sun, sea and sandy toes.' We will be learning across a range of areas of learning, looking at life at the seaside, floating and sinking and enjoying a variety of practical tasks to enhance our skills.

 

Please check back each week for updates.

A few reminders, please could you...

1. Label children's clothes clearly, especially jumpers and coats.
2. Label water bottles.
3. Supply a spare set of clothes in a separate bag to leave in school in case of accidents. Please could the bag be labelled, carrier bags are fine. 
4. Bring a pair of labelled wellies that you are happy to leave in school.

The children have a fruit snack twice a day. As we are a healthy and nut free school, can you only provide fruit as a snack. Can you please make sure the fruit/pots are labelled clearly.
