There will be an assembly welcoming our new reception children into school on Friday 4th October at 9am. We invite you to attend and you will be able to sit with your child throughout the assembly. We ask you to drop your child off as usual at 8.50am and wait for us to invite you into the classroom after registration. Many thanks.
As we begin our daily phonics sessions, there is a reading information meeting on Wednesday 25th September at 7pm in the Reception/Year 1 classroom. We will be sending home reading books and story sacks the following week and it would be very beneficial for the children if we are modelling the same strategies both at school and home. This meeting is aimed at Reception parents new to the Read, Write Inc Programme. Many thanks.
What a lovely start to the new school year. The Reception and Year 1 and Reception children have settled into school so well. Here are a few photographs of what the children have been doing both in the classroom and in our outdoor area this week. We have also shared some photos of them eating their lunch and sharing their special treasure boxes! Have a lovely weekend.
Just to let you know our Year 1 children will be attending the school Mass on Friday. The Reception children will continue to become familiar with the classroom and the outdoor area. They will have a ‘Welcoming Assembly’ on Friday 4th October at 9am. Thank you.
Welcome to our Reception /Year 1 blog. We’d like to start by saying a big well done to all the children who have come in so well this week and last. They are all settling in so well and the Receptions enjoyed their first school lunch today. Thank you so much for your support in encouraging the children to come in independently.
Just a reminder of a couple of things. PE will be on a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit with them on this day.
We will go through dinners with the children each morning and help them choose but it would also be really helpful if the night before you could go through the dinners with your child and help them decide.
Please could your child bring a water bottle to school each day. They will be encouraged to have a drink throughout the day. It would also be great if you could label cardigans, jumpers, coats etc so that we can ensure they get back to your child.
Below is a list of Year 1 reading days. Some of Tuesday’s readers have come home today but from next week it will be Tuesday. Receptions will start bringing home a reading book as soon as they start their phonic lessons in a couple of weeks. There is an information evening coming up where you will receive more information on how we teach reading.

We would just like to say a huge thank you for our lovely and very generous gifts! Thank you for the cards and kind words too! It was so lovely reading all of the cards and messages. We will miss all of your lovely children, they have been amazing this year! We hope you have a lovely break.
We are nearly there! If possible, please can you send a carrier bag in with your child over the next couple of days. We will also be collecting reading and library books so please send in any from home that you find. Thank you!
