The children are all extremely excited to learn about these countries and will begin doing do in the first week back in September, culminating in a Class Identity Day on Friday 6th September where children can come dressed in their country’s national dress, colour of the flag or another idea associated with that country e.g. typical animal. The children always enjoys these days which typically involve dance, art and food tasting!

Reception Intake information

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are very much looking forward to welcoming the newest additions to our school when they start next Wednesday in Reception and know that they will also be equally excited (and nervous no doubt) about the adventure that they are about to embark on.

Our gates will open at 8.45am. We ask that you make your way onto the playground and follow the signs to a meeting place where your child will then be taken to their new classroom. A bell will ring at 8.50am and this is the cue to send children into school. We encourage parents to send their children into school from the outset rather than accompany them as this can lead to children feeling that they need to be accompanied. There is one doorway into the classroom and a small cloaroom area that can get congested very quickly, so the school adults are able to monitor this carefully, we ask that you leave the children at the Foundation Stage door. A member of school staff will remain on the playground in order to help children know where they are going.

The children will be undertaking full days from Wednesday. So school finishes at 3.25pm. Please make your way to the main gates again and the staff will guide you round to where the children will be collected. As school staff get used to which parents are collecting which children, this might take a little while-please can we ask for your patience as we take the safeguarding of children incredibly seriously.

Finally, other than your child's water bottle and PE Kits etc, we do not need you to send your child with any other equipment. We have everything they need in school for them to have the best day and we are very much looking forward to seeing what they can create, develop, learn, discuss and question. If you haven't already, please ensure that you have signed up and logged into Good Lookin' Cookin' to order your child's daily meal. If you haven't yet done this, you may need to send your child with a packed lunch.

Enjoy these last few days of the holidays and we shall look forward to seeing you next Wednesday at 8.45am

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden
