Thank you!
Reception Sun Rays
Welcome to Sunrays!

What an amazing start to the Year! Your children have all been wonderful and have very quickly settled into classroom routines and expectations each morning. The adults in class have throuroughly enjoyed getting to know each of the children and finding out what makes each child so special. Thank you to all the parents who have helped their children complete the All About Me posters over the Summer holidays. We have been sharing a few each day and spending lots of time listening to each other and asking questions about the information on them. Thank you so much, they are so valuable to us.   

A few parents have asked about PE kits and when we will be starting our PE sessions. Please look out for a Parent Pay request for your child's t-shirt as this will appear in your account very shortly. If you have any difficulty with this or you need to speak to someone about this order, please speak with our school office staff. PE lessons will begin in 2 weeks time and if you have not recieved your t-shirts by this point there will be no problem. 

Please look out for your child's invitation to our Reception Picnic on Friday 20th September at 2:00pm - End of the day. We do hope you can make it! 

If you have any worries or concerns of any kind, please speak with Mrs Smith-Burnand, Mrs O'Keefe, Mrs Ogden-Leigh or myself at any time.

Class fund is £9 for this half term.

Here are a few reminders you may find helpful:

Please send your child to school every day with a coat, book bag and then later this term your child will need their reading folder, reading book, reading record and phonic key ring with them EVERY DAY. There may be times when parent readers are in to support reading and without a complete folder your child may miss out on a valuable learning session.

Library Day is on Thursdays and we will get this service running very soon. Please try to remember to send your child to school with their library book on this day.

PE sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a pair of jogging bottoms and jumper/hoodie in their PE kit as the weather is rapidly getting cooler.

Please help me keep your little people safe at all times by informing me directly of any after school club arrangements your child may have, or of any changes you make to your normal collection arrangements.

Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning at home and I wish your child every success and happiness for this year ahead.

Miss Brash.   

Learning Goals

Mrs Moody will be coming into class every Thursday morning to focus on writing with the class.

The children will be getting used to using the PC's and smartboard at school. They will spend some time playing on the 'busy things' website. This website is fantastic as it covers many areas of learning in the Foundation Stage and the children love it! If you would like your child to access the site whilst at home the login details are:-

Your child has been given a reading book and their first sets of homework challenges.

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.

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.

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.

We will provide you with more information and guidance about how to help your child read and how to support your child's learning at home, at our Phonics Workshop for Parents. Please see our upcoming events for more details.
