Autumn 1 - Do You Want To Be Friends?
We are looking forward to the start of a new school year and will be looking at the themes of friendship, being kind and working together.
We will be reading Our House, The Kissing Hand and Big Hug. We will also look at an Aesop Fable about The Lion and the Mouse and non-fiction books about the Emergency Services and people who help us in and outside of school.
We will be settling the children into the class and routines, read lots of stories, enjoy circle time and songs.
Reception will be having a visit from the library service. A visitor will come into school to share information and stories with the children.
Staff are available by appointment from 8:15am and will be at the classroom door every afternoon at collection time. Please speak to us after school if you have any queries.
Every child must have their READING BAG in school EVERY DAY. We aim to read with each child once a week and recap key words daily. Book Bags are available to buy from the school office. PLEASE PRACTISE YOUR KEYWORDS/READ WITH YOUR CHILD AND SIGN THEIR READING RECORD AT LEAST 3 TIMES PER WEEK. If your child's reading diary has been signed at least three times a week they will be invited to our next starbooks event.
PE takes place every Thursday. Please ensure your child has a PE Kit in school every week. They can be left on their pegs for the half term.
Rolling Snack is £1.00 a week, payable half termly via Parent Pay. If you wish for your child to have snack this half term please pay £6.00 on Parent Pay.

Have you given us your email address to see your child's account?
We send a weekly homework - every Friday and ask you to complete these by the following Wednesday.
In R.E our first topic is 'Friendship' We will be learning about what is a friend and how we can be a good friend in class.
