Welcome to Reception !

Welcome to the  Reception Class Blog 2016-2017


I would like to welcome you all to a new school year.
Your children have settled well into the routines of school life and expectations. It was lovely to meet so many of you at the parents meeting this afternoon.


I hope you will enjoy finding out about what your child has been exploring and learning  at school.  They are all settled now and adapting to the school's routines and boundaries. We started  the term with Mass celebrated  by Father Michael which was truly moving and the children responded well.


Your children have also enjoyed taking part in their first PE lesson , and enjoyed playing with the parachute. Please encourage your children to practise getting changed independently, as well as practising how to use buttons. This will help enable the children to spend more time enjoying PE.


Our topic for the first half term will be All About Me. After the half term holidays, our topic will be Celebrations and Festivals. 


Our book of the week for the week beginning the 12th of September is Once There Were Giants in My House.


Our book of the week for week beginning the 19th of September is Alfie's Feet.


We would also like to ask for a small contribution of £10:00  for the year , to go towards buying items needed for cookery.


A copy of the lunch menu will be sent home with your child on Monday 12th September.
The dinner choice for Monday 12th September is as follows :
  • Red band - Pork  strip filled Yorkshire pudding.
  • Green band - Sweet potato and cheese slice.
Please enjoy a lovely weekend and congratulate your children for completing their first week at school.


Miss Parmley
