Welcome to Reception K
Hip, Hip, Hooray - We have all had our first day!!
We would like to warmly welcome all of the children into Reception.
We hope everyone has had a fantastic summer holiday and are now feeling ready for the school year ahead. The children are settling in really well, making lots of new friends and are enjoying exploring their new environment. Something that has really impressed us these past few weeks is how smart all of the children look in their new school uniforms. It really has made such a difference and all the children look so proud to be wearing the Westwood uniform! We are very excited about all of the new faces that have joined our school this September and we cannot wait to experience all of their unique and individual personalities.
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.
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.
Reception K PE day is every Tuesday morning.
Please bring your child's reading book and reading record book into school every Thursday.
Star of the Week and Work of the Week is given out every Friday.
The classroom door is always open if you would like to speak to us or look at your child’s work, feel free to pop in.
