Our first week in Reception...

Welcome to Reception. The children have settled in beautifully and it is a delight to observe them interacting with their new friends and making positive relationships with the adults in school. The children have been thoroughly enjoying exploring their indoor and outdoor environments. We have been helping ‘Twiggle the Turtle’ to be the ‘Best Learners’ we can be and ensuring that we have a ‘Growth Mindset’ when tackling new tasks.

 

Starting School is a major milestone for you and your child. As parents, you want your children to make the best possible start to school life. We all want the same thing – a happy, confident child who enjoys going to school and loves learning. By building an effective home/school partnership, we can all achieve this aim together.

 

The children are our super Germ Busters and they are washing their hands regularly and ensuring they use the 'Nose Wiping Station' if they need to 'catch it, bin it, kill it'.

 

You and your child will be supported by Mrs Maksymczuk ,the class teacher in Reception. Miss Copper is our Higher-Level Teaching Assistant. We are supported by Miss Jenkins, our Hearing Resource Base Teaching Assistant. Mrs Haines is our Forest School leader and Mrs Beardmore will support the children during their afternoon session.
