Big Idea – Autumn 1 – I am part of a community.

This half term we are thinking about Community. We will explore the meaning of the word ‘Community’ and when we might use this word. We will think about the communities we are part of and follow the children’s curiosities and interests.

If you have any photos or interesting things to share about communities your child is part of, then please share these on Tapestry. We love to share and discuss the things that make us all unique and special.

Welcome 2022 Reception Children

Welcome to Reception! We are going to have the most amazing year.

Please find our Newsletter for Autumn 1 below.

Newsletter – Autumn 1 2022

Please make sure you have activated your Tapestry account by following the link in an activation email I have sent you. You may need to check your junk box. Any problems then please let Mrs Taylor know. Tapestry allows you to see all the super things your child is doing at school. You can also show me anything amazing that your child does at home. I do use Tapestry as a form of communication.

I have send the weekly plan on Tapestry so that parents know what to bring to school and when. I have attached the plan below and a copy is always fastened to the blue Reception gate in school.

Hello children,

Some of you may be staying at home over the next few days to keep safe from the sun heat. If you are, then I have put some activities on your Tapestry account for you to complete. Please share the work you do with me by posting onto Tapestry. I love to see the things you have done to stay busy!

Be cool!

Celebration Assembly 8th July

This week, the children have reflected on transitioning into year 1. They discussed the importance of sharing a worry and how to cope if they feel worried (yellow zone). The children shared ways that helped them return to the green zone. The green zone is when they  feel calm, happy and focused.

Well done to all the children for resilience, resourcefulness and reflection during their two days in Year 1. The Reception team felt very proud to hear the wonderful comments from your new grown ups in Year 1.
