Reception Baseline
As the children settle in we complete the reception baseline assessment where we get to know each child so that we are able to plan to meet their individual needs. For more information on this please click here. 

Things to remember
 
Please bring a water bottle and your book bag to school everyday. 
Children will be outdoors in all weather so please ensure your child has the appropriate clothing in school each day eg; sunhat, rain coat etc
 
A healthy snack can be brought into school for morning snack but fresh fruit is available everyday. 
 
P.E day is a FRIDAY please ensure that children have a P.E kit on their peg. These will be sent home each half term. 
HOMEWORK

Homework will be allocated later in the term. 

READING BOOK

Your child will bring home a reading book and phonic flash cards.  Please practice the flash cards and read this book with your child encouraging them to use the pictures to tell the story, spot sounds that they recognise begin to blend words such as ‘b-u-g’. Please write in your child’s reading record book when you have read at home. We will change these books once a week. It is the expectation that all pupils will read their book four to five times a week at home to develop fluency and understanding.
