Welcome to Class RAP
It has been a lovely start to the school term here in Reception! The children have all settled well and we are all incredibly proud of them. The first few weeks have gone quickly and the children have been busy making new friends and settling into their new surroundings. They have been keen to explore all areas of the unit particularly outside!
The Reception year is all about developing independence and confidence as learners. You can help with this by encouraging your child to do things for themselves. This could include taking jumpers on and off, fastening and unfastening buttons and zipping up coats.
Julia Donaldson is our author focus for this term and the children have enjoyed listening to a number of her stories already. Reading is very important and they are now bringing picture books home to share with you. Please spend some time reading these, discussing the pictures and encouraging your child to predict what might happen next. An adult must sign their Reading Record when they have read at home so we know to change it.
We look forward to working with you.
Mr Pinnock and Mrs Turner
