Starting School

The reception children have settled into school brilliantly…you would never have guessed they are new to the school. Our buddy system is working really well. The most important part of any child starting school is to be happy and feel safe in their environment. Our children are certainly full of smiles. 

I love teaching reception. It amazes me how much children develop, not just as little people but academically. Reception are currently learning letter sounds but before you know it they will be reading words and developing a real love of books! Like the older members of their class they have been enjoying activities based on the story ‘Supertato’. What a brilliant painting of the Evil Pea!! 

Reception parents will receive their log in instructions for Tapestry next week. This works similarly to Seesaw. It is an invaluable insight into your child’s learning experiences at school.
