Thank you!
Reception Moon Beams
SEPTEMBER 2019

It is the start of a brand new school year and I am excited to welcome all our new little and big people to Moonbeams!

We have many fantastic experiences planned to provide the next steps in each little person's individual learning journey.
Please remember to bring along your child's "ALL ABOUT ME" poster on his/her first day - this is a super starting point as we all get to know each other and helps the staff provide activities suited to children's interests.

Our "Friends of the School" PTA are providing tea/coffee/gingerbread (and tissues if needed) each morning of this week as the children come in to class. This is a great opportunity to meet and chat with other parents, new and old, and you will receive a warm welcome in the Arts room - ask Mrs Ogden - Leigh or myself to direct you in the right direction if you are unsure where to go.

I am very much looking forward to working together in partnership with all parents to ensure the little people of Moonbeams have a fun filled, successful year.

Our school motto of "ONLY THE VERY BEST WILL DO" underpins everything we do at Oldfield Brow and I am confident that this year the children, parents and staff of Moonbeams will work collaboratively and effectively to achieve the very best possible outcomes for all!







This web page will be updated every half term with relevant information. There will also be a short update at the top of the page each week so make sure you keep checking!

Thank you for your support - Mrs Hardman





IMPORTANT DIARY DATES






SAFEGUARDING:
At the start and end of each day one adult will stand at the classroom door; myself and classroom TA for that day alternate this role, the other adult will manage the children in the classroom.

As we now have so many entrance/exit doors we aim to have these closed and locked by 9.10am and 3.30pm each day.

It would help us greatly if you could support us by leaving the school building by these times each day - to ensure the safety of all children during the school day and whilst at after school club/activities.

Once the doors are locked we can then be assured that the only adults within the building are employed staff.

If you need to speak to a staff member at the start or end of a school day please do so at the classroom door - if you need further time we will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient appointment.

We pride ourselves on having a welcoming, open door policy at Oldfield Brow and understand that working in partnership with parents is essential, but as our school building and family grows we must be mindful of the safety of all our little people.

We thank you for your support.



Please take some time to explore the "children's work" section at the bottom of this page - again for safeguarding purposes I have not included your child's name - but if you sit with your little person he/she should be able to identify themselves and their friends even if you cannot! If you do not spot your son or daughter this week then look again next week ...


Please find the AUTUMN term learning objectives in the 'E-bag' on the class page (scroll down and you'll find it on the right hand side of the page)




REMINDERS -

INDOOR PE KIT (this should be kept in school throughout the half term then taken home for washing during the half term break) Moonbeam PE sessions take place on Monday and Thursday.

Please make sure all items of UNIFORM and PE KIT are labelled clearly with your child's name.

It is also a good idea to regularly check your little person's hair for signs of HEADLICE - if you do find any please inform myself or Mrs Ogden Leigh and we will send a letter home.

As always I thank you for your continued support.







Learning Goals


See learning tasks further down the page and objectives in the e-bag.








Mrs Norbury(Assistant Headteacher) will be in class each Thursday to do guided writing with the children.





We use the smartboard and PCs a lot and the children are particularly enjoying exploring the "busy things" website. If you would like your little person to access this site at home the login details are :

Homework


Reading scheme books will be changed each time your child reads - as long as you have signed/commented in the reading record.

Library books are changed each Thursday.

Please read with your child each night and comment in the Reading Record book, remember to include other books you may have read at home for bedtime stories or just during quiet times that you have shared with your child.

Reading is all about the variety of experience your child has and developing a love of books at this age.

Please ensure your child has his/her book bag containing reading wallet, reading book, reading record and phonic key ring with them EVERY DAY as there may be times when parent readers are in to support and without a complete wallet your child may miss out on a valuable reading session.


Homework books will be sent home monthly with challenges to complete as and when you are able.

Sometimes the task set is a creative, practical or discussion one and it is entirely up to you which times you and your child choose to record in the book.

Library Day is on Thursdays. Please try to remember to send your child to school with their library book on this day.

Homework is sent home monthly. You will receive the next month's challenges on the first Friday in the month and we will collect your child's homework book on the last Wednesday of each month.

Whichever task you are doing we want you as a family to have fun sharing in your child's learning journey - homework is given to enhance your child's development and give you an insight to the learning activities we are doing in the classroom.

We thank you for your support.
