Throughout this year your children will be working closely with:
Miss Robinson – Class Teacher
Mrs McKinnell – Teaching Assistant
My Town and Me
Welcome to St Anne's C of E Primary School
During the Autumn Term our topic will be My town and Me.
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.
The Government require us to carry out a baseline assessment when children start in Reception. We will do this within the first few weeks. You can find more information in the useful documents below.
8.50am - children line up and Miss Robinson and Mrs McKinnell will collect them from the KS1 playground
3.20pm - pick up time from KS1 playground
Please make sure that all clothing is labelled including PE kits and shoes. In Class Reception we access our outside area in all weathers. As the weather will begin to get colder please make sure you send in coats, hats, gloves and scarves.
Water Bottles and Fruit
Children should bring a named water bottle each day. We provide free fruit on a daily basis or your child can bring their own piece of fruit for morning snack. Please don’t send them with other snacks such as with crisps, biscuits or chocolates.
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.
Our PE day this term will be a Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your child in wearing their PE kit on that day. Make sure everything is named so we can quickly get it back to the right child when we need to.
