Reception - Miss Barras

Hello and a warm welcome from Miss Barras

This year the Reception class will be taught by Miss Barras. The children will also be supported by Mrs Kirby, Mrs Greenaway, Mrs Dolisznyj and Mrs Palmer the class/key stage teaching assistants.

This term our topic will be All About Me. A brief outline of the themes we hope to cover each week will be displayed in the cloakroom. Alongside this the children also follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Morning Routine
Children are welcome into the classroom as soon as the cloakroom door is opened by a member of staff. The cloakroom does get very crowded in the mornings so we ask you to encourage the children to be as independent as possible. Once they have settled into the new school year please encourage them say goodbye to you in the playground and to come into the cloakroom and the classroom independently.

Home time Routine
We will stand with the children at the classroom door and let them go when we see you in the playground. (Please give us a wave for the first few days until we get to know you.)
If your child is going to after school club, or is being collected by someone other than yourself please record this on the board just inside the cloakroom door.

School Uniform
Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled including PE kit.

Wellington Boots
It would be helpful if your child could bring a pair of wellies to keep in the cloakroom for wet weather activities and welly walks. Please ensure they are labelled and pegged together.

Snack/Enrichment Activities
We have a morning snack of fruit, milk or water. Throughout the year we will offer children enrichment activities in order to do this and to cover the cost of cooking activities we ask for a contribution of £12.00 to cover the whole year OR £2 every term. Please give the money, in a named envelope, to one of the adults in the classroom.

Your child will do physical activities twice a week, please keep an eye on your parent board to update you of any changes.

We look forward to working with you and your child over the next academic year. If you have any queries please feel free to pop in and see us – after school is usually the most convenient time.

Many thanks

Miss Barras and the Early Years Team
