Croeso i Dosbarth Derbyn 2020/21!
(Welcome to Reception 2020/21!)
This year we are lucky enough to have 3 Reception classes! These are:
- Dosbarth Mrs Hammond (Miss Fielding and Mrs Applegate-Lewis)
- Dosbarth Mrs Chin-Adams (Mrs Lollipop and Mrs Moradi)
- Dosbarth Mr Purnell (Miss McGrath and Miss Hackett)
We have had a great start in Reception and we have thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the children! We are super proud of how well they are all settling in and we hope they aren't coming home too tired! We've had a busy few days and there's lots more exciting things planned over the forthcoming weeks.
Normally, around this time of the year, we would have held a 'Meet the Teachers' evening where we would invite all the grown ups in to meet the Reception team and tell you a bit about what we do, how the children learn and general information about Reception. Unfortunately, it's not possible this year due to the current situation so we created a virtual 'Meet the Teachers' for you. Please take some time to read it and if you have any questions or concerns please send us an email on Class Dojo and we will post a FAQ link by the end of the following week (18th September 2020).
When your child starts Reception it can be an anxious time for you as a parent. We want to assure you that your child will always be looked after and it is our aim to give them the best start to their school life through lots of adventures and fun! We love the outdoors and we believe in giving children real life experiences which will provide them with the skills and knowledge to become independent, enthusiastic and ambitious learners. As always, if you have any concerns about your child, please speak to your child's class teacher. We are always here to help.
Thank you once again for all your support
Here's to lots of happy faces and memories!
The Reception Team
Our Furry Friend
This is Biscuit! He is our much loved resident guinea pig. The children love looking after him and in return he gives the best cuddles.
Every Friday we will be doing PE lessons. Until further notice, the children can come to school every Friday wearing their PE kits! Kits should include; black shorts/joggers/leggings, a white t-shirt and trainers. With the weather becoming colder, please make sure your child is wearing a jumper as well.
