Our days are so busy in reception, having lots of fun and learning!
Here is a brief overview of what we do throughout the week:
Daily: Literacy/Maths focus, phonics, reading, curriculum, choosing, playing, exercise, focused jobs.
Tuesday: Forest School
Friday: PE, Music and Computing
Children do not need to come into school in different clothing for Forest School or PE, as these clothes are kept in school.
PE kits stay in school for the half term and are sent home to be washed, ready to be brought in for the new term.
All children should have an additional kit bag in school with spare clothes and layers, which they can wear in addition to their uniform and waterproofs for forest school. Please send your child in their usual uniform on Tuesday for Forest School and they will wear their additional clothes, if needed, depending on the weather.
Swimming kit needs to be brought in every Wednesday with the children which consists of a towel, swimming costume and a swimming cap. Swimming caps can be bought for £1.20 at school. Children can bring in goggles as well as their own arm bands too! Please encourage your child to get changed and dried themselves at home to build their confidence when at the pool. We will be there to support and help them but want to develop their independence with these skills.
