Can You Help?

Perhaps you have knowledge or resources about our project? 

Perhaps you have time to come into class to help with reading? Please come and talk to your child’s teacher if you do!

Reception children must be in the playground by 8.45 for doors to open at 8.50am. 

A polite notice - Nursery PlaygroundThe Nursery playground is only for the Nursery children to use during the time that Nursery is open.  Please do not let your child run around and play with the toys in there.

    • Phase 2 sounds: s (snake)  a (apple)  t (tower)   m (mountain)   d (dinosaur)
  • READING
    • Keep reading with your child at home and encourage them to talk about what is happening in the pictures.  It’s great if you point out when YOU are reading too – books, magazines, your mail, e-mails…  
    • Remember your child can change their book any day and as often as you like, not just on their set days with their teacher (Penguins–Tuesdays.    Pandas–Wednesdays.     Puffins–Thursdays)
  • PE
    • We will start to have P.E in the hall. The children only take off socks and shoes for this.  
    • Please remember your child has to change their own socks and shoes. Please help your child to practise at home.
    • Also, leggings and socks are better than tights!
  • Home Learning

    Everywhere books will be sent home on a Friday. Please help your child to complete the task set and return them by the following Wednesday. As well as this – don’t forget to make EVERY opportunity you can for your child to learn through the everyday things you do – count everything, go outdoors as much as you can, listen for and point out sounds all around you…..  

  • How can you help?

    Perhaps you have some resources about our project?

    • You could send in “treasure” for the children to dig up (fossils, interesting stones, old unwanted or broken jewellery, postcards or photos of “long ago”)
    • You can still sign up to come in and help in a session. (Only one parent per session! Sign-up sheet at the window)
    • Don’t forget to keep looking at our “Learning Journey” on the window to see some of the things we are doing and learning.

    Arrive on time!

    Remember that the children come straight to our big carpet when they arrive, so if your child is late, they miss an important part of the learning for the session.

  • Useful Websites for learning

    If you go to the Cbeebies website, your child can find out all kinds of things and play games or watch episodes about dinosaurs – look for “Andy’s Jurrasic Adventures.”  Also “learnenglish.co.uk” has some games about dinosaurs.  If you find any otherreally good sites – do let us know!

Messages from the Staff

School starts at 8:50am and finishes at 3:15. Please be prompt as lateness at either the start or at the end of the day is upsetting for the children.

Please check with your child's teacher that they have a record of all the people that are allowed to collect you child - we will not allow the children to leave the school premises without your consent. If your child is being collected by someone other than yourself or the allocated person then you MUST call the school office.

Packed lunches must not contain sweets, chocolate bars, nuts or fizzy drinks.

Parents and grown ups can talk to any member of the Reception Team at the end of school.

Please make sure all of your child's clothing has their names written on them with PERMANENT pen - thank you.
