Dear Parents/Carers

 

Welcome back!

 

 Just a few reminders:

 

  • A reminder that all school clothing, including shoes and socks should be named.
  • Please could all children ensure they bring book bags to school every day. This is especially important as there are often letters for your attention, along with pictures and drawings your child has done at school. Reception children will be bringing home a reading book – please ensure this comes back to school every day, so that we may change it. We also read with your child in school and so it is vital to have their book to hand.
  • Homework reminder for Reception – will be given out on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday.
  • Reception children will all need a named school PE kit this year – black or navy PE shorts, white PE t-shirt, tracksuit and trainers. We are doing outdoor basketball this half term so require both an indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school.
  • Please continue to check ‘home boxes’ for letters etc.
  • Tuck shop continues to take place on a Friday morning. Could we please remind parents that tuck shop is 20p and this must be put into the pots provided, should you wish your child to have tuck shop. There will of course be fruit available from the snack table for those who do not bring money for tuck shop.
  • Every morning a challenge is set for the children to complete. The content of the challenges reflects a different area of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and aims to consolidate and test the children’s prior learning, as well as engaging them in an activity to start off the school day. We would encourage that you support your child in completing the challenges set, so that you can see what they have been learning and the skills they have acquired. If you are unable to stay due to other commitments, please ask a member of the Foundation team to help support your child with their challenge.
  • Each child has a personal Profile which is a learning journey of the child’s experiences and progress throughout their time in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Whilst your child is at school, they are closely observed in their play and how they interact with their peers and the environment around them. We would encourage parents to contribute to their child’s Profile via the ‘superstar’ vouchers enclosed with this letter. If your child does something at home that they are really proud of, or if you feel that they are demonstrating particular skills and knowledge, please feel free to write down a brief description of what your child said or did, or even take a photograph! If you pass this on to a member of the Early Years team, they will put it into your child’s Profile. Alternatively, please feel free to do this yourself and take the opportunity to share your child’s Profile with them in the classroom.
  • Please could we also ask that parents leave the classrooms by 8:55am due to assembly and teaching sessions.
  • Also a reminder to ensure that your child posts their name card first thing on a morning to show they are here and to tell us what they are having for their lunch.
