But all they do is play? What do they actually learn?!
WELCOME TO THE RECEPTION SECTION OF OUR WEBSITE FOR PARENTS AND CARERS OF CHILDREN STARTING IN SEPTEMBER 2020!
Visit our "Video Resource Centre" on our school website under the "Teaching and Learning" tab, to watch a welcome video for our new September Reception children!
You will find the video in the "Welcome to Reception" section.
There are also lots of other videos of stories read by teachers at our school that you are welcome to watch! You will find these in the "a story at bedtime or anytime" section.
Transition into year one and home learning over the summer
We hope you have a fabulous and fun summer holiday! We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school in September. To help make this a smooth transition for all of our children, we have made some resources for you to look through and complete with your child. The story 'Safe in school' may be helpful if your child is feeling anxious about the return to school. We have made a shorter story as well, called 'Going back to school', that your child might prefer. There is also a 'Meet the teacher' document, a video from your child's new teacher, and a list of the new rules that we will be helping the children to follow in September. The week before school starts, we will be adding a video tour of your child's new classroom and key areas of the school to this page. Have a lovely summer, and we can't wait to see you all soon!
We have also set you some challenges to help you practise some important skills and to prepare you for our first SOLE topic, "Enchanted Woodland!"
In September you will each be given your very own SOLE journal. These will be personalised by you with photos, stickers and things that you like. You could start to collect these over the summer if you would like to.
Hello to all of our Reception children and families.
During this period of school closure we will be posting weekly home learning challenges here to support home learning.
Please have a look at the general guidance document which lists key websites, strategies and games which you may also find useful.
Please use our EYFS assessment tool - Tapestry to share learning with us. We will be able to give feedback and suggest next steps through this app too.
Thinking of you all and looking forward to being back with you all soon.
Miss Haley and Miss Wilton :)
