Pre-Reception Information Evening.

On Friday evening Mrs Reynolds and Mrs Baughan held the second of their Pre-Reception information evenings. The focus for this session was the continuation of the Early Years curriculum, including phonics, literacy, maths and writing. We also talked about all of the other fun activities that take place throughout the school day, including specialist teaching and learning more about the world around us through technology and investigation.
At the beginning of the Autumn Term the children are introduced to our Woodland Explorers characters who will open up a world of learning through exploration and purposeful play. Each of these characters has an important part to play in the Reception curriculum; Curious Cat helps us to make sense of the world, whilst Wordy Weasel will help us to link sounds and letters as we learn to read together.
Starting Reception is an exciting milestone in a child’s educational journey and by involving parents as partners in this transition we hope that they will have gained an insight into their child’s time in Reception.
We would like to thank all of the parents who attended the event and look forward to seeing you for our next evening which will be held on Friday 5th July between 6-7pm, where we will be getting you ‘Reception Ready’ in preparation for September.
