My Town and Me
Welcome to St Anne's C of E Primary School
The first half term in Reception Class is about settling into school life and establishing rules and routines. The children will find school days tiring at first as they adjust to the changes of our busy day. Our focus as staff is really getting to know your children and finding out what they know and what they can do. We will be finding out what the children are interested in and taking our learning forward based on their interest.
We will start with finding out about our families and homes through our topic My Town and Me. We talk bout our likes and dislikes and discuss our feelings. In Autumn 2 we will begin to think about our local community and the people who help us.
Please make sure that all clothing is labelled including PE kits and shoes.
Water Bottles and Snacks
We have fresh water and cups available all day. Children can also bring
a named water filled bottle if they would like. We provide free fruit on a daily basis or your child can bring their own piece of fruit for morning snack.
We will be sharing lots of books in school and it is important that this continues at home. To support your child at home we encourage that they read with you daily. If they read for a minimum of 3 times a week and note it in their diaries they will receive a remarkable reader sticker and when they have done this for 5 weeks they will receive a prize.
Every Wednesday morning Class Reception and Key Stage 1 will be opening their doors for our Early Bird Reading session at 8.30. Please feel free to come along and share a book together before the start of school.
In Class we have two dog teddy bears called Meg and Max. Like the children in Class Reception they are learning to read and over the course of the year will be coming to stay with you for three nights. They will bring with them their reading diary, a selection of books and some activities to complete. We hope you have lots of fun when they come to visit.
This term we will be doing gymnastics on a Thursday morning. This will sometimes change so it is advisable for your child to have their indoor and outdoor named kit in school all week.
