Reception Groupings – 1st Week back in September

With the lack of a normal transition for new reception children, and with the restrictions to ‘normal’ operations in place due to Covid19, we have split the new reception intake into smaller groups for the start of the new year. This will allow staff to support and help children get familiar with their new routines and classroom in a calm, nurtured manner.

Each child will get 2 half days in school – one in a small group of 5 or 6 children, and then in a bigger group of 10 or 11, to allow them to get familiar with the start and end of day routines, as well as having the chance to learn classroom procedures and layout.

We appreciate that this could be difficult for working parents, but we have to put safety and children well-being first – and with a large intake of 22 children, we felt this was the best way to ensure their start in school was positive.

Thank you for returning the New Parent Paperwork – Mrs Fox will be contacting each parent individually to talk through the start of term, and answer any questions.  Please do use the class email address to ask any questions ahead of Mrs Fox’s phone call!

Class 1 Well Done Award for Children at Home.

Good morning to all the children who are still at home. I hope you are all well.

I have been amazed with the work some of you have produced during your time at home. Some of you have been working extremely hard at home and are continuing to do so.

I felt that as we are acknowledging the achievements of the children in school, the children at home should also be acknowledged for their work. Until the end of term, I will be awarding a Well Done Award to the children who are still at home.

This week the certificate goes to Jake Clarke for his resilience and motivation. Well done Jake!
