Reception Parent Welcome - September 2020
Mrs Austin has decided to host a Zoom meeting for her parents as many are new to the school. This will be next Thursday 17th at 4.30pm. All Reception parents will receive an email inviting them to join the meeting on Thursday morning. The meeting will last about 40 minutes. If you are not familiar with online meetings, give it a try as it is easier than you think.
Reception Class Room - The Sunshine Room
This is our classroom. Take a look around.
Our Classroom is named The Sunshine Room. Alongside focussed activities, we can learn in the continuous provision areas. We have a Home Corner, Reading Area, Understanding the World/Fine Motor Area, Writing Area, Mathematics Area, Sand Area and Construction Area.
We now have a wet room to enable our children to change into waterproofs and wellies so they can access our new equipment safely - and mainly, keep clean and dry! The Rain and Shine room has also been adapted to house even more new outdoor resources and equipment which can be accessed by the children during independent learning time.

The Homework Grid is to be completed weekly. It is sent home every Friday and expected back into school before the new homework goes out.
Individual sounds will be sent home weekly on the reverse of the Homework Grid. Spelling lists will be sent home as and when appropriate.
Book Bag and Planner: Brought to school daily
Reading Books: Changed weekly
Reading at Home: Little and often - please write in the planner when your child has read at home.
Please use the planner to communicate with the Reception staff and also record when your child has read at home. We ask for the planner to be signed weekly, it will be checked on your child's reading day.
Things to Remember
PE Day: Monday + continuous outdoor provision - PE kit must be kept in school at all times (in a drawstring bag).
Please make sure your child brings a coat to school everyday. Outdoor learning is a vital part of the Early Years Curriculum and will happen on a daily basis. We kindly ask for you to provide us with a pair of wellies for your child which can be kept in school. This will enable us to learn outside in all Oldham weather!
Please make sure that your child has a pair of wellies in school so that our outdoor learning can take place in all weathers. The wellies need to be labelled with the child’s name or initials.
Cancelled until further notice
