Welcome to Class 1 (Reception). I hope you all had a lovely summer. Of course, this year will be a very important time in your child's development. In fact, it is going to be the foundation for their future learning; that's why it is called 'The Foundation Stage'. We will aim to work together with you as a partnership to make this year as smooth, happy and constructive as possible.
Please let us know if, at any time, there has been something to affect your child that may have an impact on their day. And if ever you have any questions or concerns please get in touch.
My email address is [email protected]
You will find lots of information on the 'Supporting your child in Class 1' page which I will add to throughout the year. The most important thing is for you to spend quality time with your child, talking, sharing books, counting and cuddling every day!
We deliver the Early years curriculum through topic work, You can find out more about this in the 'What are we doing this term? and the 'What are we doing this week?' pages.

Please bring your child to the school gate between 9 and 9.15am. They will be met by Mrs Bailey-Smith who will take them to Class 1. if for any reason your child is upset, please don't worry. Leave them with us and I guarantee they will be fine!

Every morning the children have a break in their activities to enjoy a snack and a drink. Milk is provided free of charge until a child reaches their 5th birthday. Milk, even if it is free of charge, can be ordered from 'Coolmilk'
Fresh fruit is supplied free of charge to all children in Class 1 and 2. Please ensure that your child brings in fresh water everyday in their labelled water bottle; they can help themselves to this whenever they are thirsty.
