Welcome to Reception!
Hello Reception 2021
So far so good! Everybody has returned to school after the long summer with fantastic confidence. Children have had big smiles and look so smart. I have been shown lots of new shoes, as well as new lunchboxes - they are all very proud.
This half term we will be focusing on settling into new rules, routines and expectations. We will be establishing a positive, confident and kind class family and I have already heard some lovely phrases and interactions. Yesterday I overheard,
"Please can I use that after you?"
"Yeah sure, I don't need it anymore".
I am really excited about the year ahead.
As you know, I got married in the Summer (woohoo!), so I am now Mrs Hipkins, this is what children will call me. Even though they need to remind me sometimes!
PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Kits stay in school until half term. Any help at home to encourage independent dressing and undressing is highly encouraged. Especially in turning trousers the right way out?
I will be posting a theme plan soon, so that you can all read about the play opportunities and planned learning intentions each half term. I will also use tapestry to record some remarkable moments I see in school, please also record yours so I can see them too!
I will let you all know about Forest School as soon as we have secured a start date.
Mrs Hipkins and Mrs Noble
