Welcome to Reception K

Hip, Hip, Hooray - We have all had our first day!!



All children will now have a reading book and yellow reading record.

We will begin to give children picture books which will lead on to books with short words and sounds they have been learning in school.


Picture books are a great way to introduce children to using a book, holding it carefully, using pictures to tell a story and understanding the sequence of a story. We ask that reading records and books are returned the following Thursday with a comment about how your child enjoyed and got on with their book. We will then be able to change these books, read with your child and give them a new book for the week on Friday.


‘Star Moments’

We would love to hear about all the amazing things your child can do at home. For example, getting dressed by themselves, helping with jobs at home, recognising numbers and letters etc. Please help yourself to any ‘Star Moment’ stars as we would like you to use these to write something that your child has achieved outside of school. There will be a special box out every day for you to post these slips into so that we can share them with all the children and put them up on display to be proud of.
