Welcome to Reception!



As we approach the end of term we will be starting to collect in reading books and high frequency words.  Although we will read with the children next week, we won’t send home their guided reading book and we will keep their yellow reading records which we will pass on to their Year 1 teachers.  The children will be able to bring home a ‘home reader’ until Wednesday after which we will keep the books at school.  If you have any school reading books that you find under the bed or behind the couch over the summer holidays, do please return them to us.

We still have our PE lesson with Mr Baldwin on Monday so we will send PE kits home on Wednesday as we want to keep a spare change of clothes in school for anyone who gets a bit wet in the paddling pool on Beach Day!

The Celebration of Work evening for the whole school takes place on Tuesday 17th July from 5.30-7.30pm.  We look forward to you popping in to meet us in the classrooms to look at the children’s work and celebrate a year of incredible learning.  You will be able to take home the children’s Learning Journey with you too! Please note that Mrs Murfin in Pink Class will be unavailable during 6-6.30. The Year 1 team also wanted to pass on that the presentation and FAQs from last week’s transition meeting are on the school website, via links in the table below this message.

With best wishes,

The Reception Team
