A warm welcome to Reception! Mrs. Parsons is the class teacher, and Mrs. Felton, Mrs. Khan and Mrs. Hughes the teaching assistants.
The children are settling in and exploring the many varied activities on offer both inside and outside. There are many routines and expectations to become familiar with. The children are learning which colour group they are in, how to play with the many resources and toys, including when to stop playing and how to tidy away! The children are becoming familiar with our 'Rights and Responsibilities' which help us to be wonderful, caring friends and successful learners.
To support your child's experience, please send in:
You have received a letter explaining the new Early Years Framework, please chat to staff if you have any questions.
During Autumn One you will also receive Well Green's Reception Curricular Goals which outline our ambitious expectations for every child in the Reception class. Six times a year, parents and carers receive a half term overview. The focus for Autumn One is called, 'What Do I Know About Me' which is Reception's Learning Challenge title. Our Learning Challenge work is recorded in a floor book and your child will come home with key vocabulary relating to this title on a 'vocabulary mat'. Please help your child to say and understand the words relating to this Learning Challenge. You can also find this, and the remaining year's titles on Well Green's Curriculum Provision Map for Reception which can be found on the school's website (Parents-> Curriculum).
To support your understanding of Reception's work, your child will have weekly homework in their Busy Bee book. Their work complements the learning in class, as well as keeping you up to date with daily Reception life.
This half term, parents will be receiving an invitation to a Reading Meeting and can also look forward to an Early Years Harvest Assembly. You will receive details regarding these events separately.
If you have any concerns or questions, please arrange to chat to me or contact me on the following school email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to an exciting year, Mrs. Parsons and the Early Years Team
