Welcome to Autumn 1

Welcome to all our new starters in Puffin class. This is going to be a very exciting year for the children as they explore their new school environment, begin to learn phonics, learn to read, write and count and most importantly. learn through their play. It promises to be a very enjoyable year. We will start the year off by finding out all about our children; what they like (and don't like!), who is in their family, what they like to do, how they have grown since being a baby and maybe even what they think they might like to do when they grow up!

The children will begin with PE lessons being held inside so they don't need trainers. In their PE bag they need a polo shirt and shorts only. These need to be brought in at the start of the term and we will send them home for washing at the end of this half term.

Please can all children bring their water bottle into school every day as we do encourage the children to drink throughout the day to stay hydrated. Also please ensure that all clothing is labelled as this makes it much easier when items of clothing go missing or are found.

Please remember that if at anytime you have a question to ask or a concern to raise, however trivial it may seem at the time, please do speak to us. There will always be a member of staff on the Reception gate in a morning and if they can't answer your question or concern at the time they will take note of it and someone will contact you during the day.

Maths focus

16.9.19: Counting to 5 and recognising numerals to 5.

Please note: 

  • The chidren will need to bring their PE kit (t-shirt and shorts) into school. They will leave their PE kit in school until we send them home with it at the end of the half term.
  • Please can we take this opportunity to ask parents to ensure all their child's clothing is labelled with their name. 
  • Drinking water throughout the day is really important so can children please ensure they bring their named school water bottle in everyday.
  • Please check this page and our school's Facebook page for regular updates on what we are learning about and important messages.
