Reception Intake 2020
This term our topic is 'All About Me'.
Our First Week in Reception!
Below are just a few photos of what we've been getting up to in our first week of school!
(We will be adding photos and information every Friday, so please don't be worried if your child isn't in a photo this time)
The children and the staff have had a very exciting, and tiring, first week with lots of new faces and places to get used to! Next week should be a little bit more routine for your child, now that they know what to expect!
Next week we look forward to seeing you for mornings, and lunch! The lunch menu will be on Week 3, please remember to help your child decide what they would like to have, before they come in the morning!
We will also be having our first full day on Friday!
The following Thursday (24th) will be their first Forest School afternoon.
Children can wear their own clothes all day on Thursdays, starting from Thursday 24th. These clothes need to be appropriate for being outside for several hours in the day, and possibly getting messy. We do have waterproofs that we can put over clothes on wetter days. Wellies need to be named and in school as soon as possible, and can be left under their pegs, to save their shoes getting muddy!
Thanks for your support during the children's first week of school!
