Transition: Week 2

Friday 16 September 2022

We’ve had a wonderful week welcoming groups 2 and 3 into Reception. It’s been great to see a full classroom full of busy learners! We’ve been so impressed with how well all the children have settled.

Every morning, your child will come into the classroom and do their morning jobs.  Our cloakroom is only small and can get very crowded on a morning! To reduce the amount of people in the cloakroom, please encourage your child to do these jobs independently.

Snacks and water…
Please make sure your child’s water bottle only contains plain water.

Every day, school will provide a healthy fruit or vegetable. If your child would prefer to bring their own snack, please ensure this contains only fruit and/or vegetables. Snacks from home will stay in the children’s bookbags.

If your child is having grapes for their snack, please ensure that the grapes are cut lengthways.

Parent Partners
Alongside our themes, we try to plan other areas of learning according to the children’s interests. To help us do this, we need YOU! Throughout the year, it would be great if you could send photos of any ‘WOW’ moments or new interests your child has at home. You can bring these moments into school or send them to

PE starts next Friday. Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit.

Me and my family
Next week, we’ll be thinking about families. This is our first theme for this half-term.  During this theme, we’ll be getting to know each other, share photographs of our families and make historical links by looking at photographs of families from the past.
