What a great start to the school year! The children have all settled so well and we are all incredibly proud of them. They have spent the first few weeks making new friends and getting to know the staff. They have shown us how curious and inquisitive they are and we are looking forward to the exciting year ahead.

The Reception year is all about developing independence. 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.

Reading and sharing stories is something all of the children are enjoying in school. 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.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the Reception team. We are always happy to help.

Many thanks,

The Reception Staff
