Reception 2020 - 2021
We hope you all enjoyed your summer, and would like to give you a warm welcome to Our Lady’s Reception class! Some of you we know very well from the last year or 2 in Nursery, and others we are meeting for the first time. We are very excited about the new adventure we are embarking on in Reception class. Your child will have a great year, full of learning and fun, with an experienced teaching team.
We hope you find this information useful, if there is anything else you want to ask, just come and speak to us before or after school.
All uniform, P.E. kit and book bags can be ordered through Parent Pay. It will be much easier to get letters, bring in library books, and to take reading books home if you have a book bag.
Your child will be taking reading books home with a reading record. Please make time to listen to your child read each day. We will be changing the books when they are ready for new words. The Oxford Reading Tree scheme introduces Biff Chip and Kipper’s family. The first ones are picture books for your child to talk about what is happening on each page.
Your child will have curriculum P.E. each Wednesday, and will have an extra sports session delivered by City Sports each Thursday. Please make sure your child’s P.E kit is on their peg, with their name in each item. It is also important to write their name into all of their uniform.
It might be an idea to bring their P.E. kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday, as on occasion a P.E. session might take place on a different day.
Lunch and snacks
We provide a piece of fruit each day, with milk (if ordered from the office) and water. If you wanted to bring in a snack for later in the afternoon you can do, but it is not necessary. Lunches are booked for in advance through Parent Pay. If your child brings in a packed lunch please make sure it is a healthy meal, with limited sugary /salty snacks.
Your child will go to the school library every Monday morning. They will borrow a book for the week, and if returned can borrow another.
This term our topics will be ‘Ourselves’ and in R.E. ‘God’s wonderful world’. Updates on our curriculum will be published on our website each term. Throughout the year we will be posting updates on our blog so keep checking this also. Mr Edmondson our Computing teacher will be publishing all of the learning from his lessons on the blog also.
We are looking forward to the year ahead, and thank you for you for your support in your child’s learning.
