Class 1 - Nursery / Reception 2017 - 2018

Miss Parry

Welcome to Reception and Little Acorns Nursery!

EYFS Teacher: Miss Parry

Autumn Term

This term we will be welcoming our new nursery and reception children and their families.

Starting school is a very exciting time in a child's life and we have lots of fun activities planned to help the children settle in and become part of our family.

Children will learn the routines of the school day and access our engaging indoor and outdoor environments. They will be encouraged to become independent learners who are confident in their surroundings.

Our topic this term will be “All About Me”. We will be looking at lots of familiar stories, our families, where we live and our senses.

PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday. Please remember that children in reception should be able to get changed into their PE kit by themselves, including doing and undoing their own buttons. I will of course help with tricky top buttons, ties and shoes on the wrong feet!

PE kits should be in school every day and please can all items of clothing be clearly named.

Children are able to bring a healthy snack into school each day to eat at morning break. Snack, such as toast, is also available from the school canteen.

Reading and homework

Children in reception will be given 3 reading books to take home each week. Please read with your child every night where possible as this will really help to develop their reading skills and enjoyment of reading. Every time you read with your child please write this in the communication diary on the left hand side.

When the children have settled into school they will also receive number flashcards and phonics sounds to practise at home.

If you have any questions please feel free to come and see me.
