Reminders for Reception



Talking Point: 

We recognise the importance of parent/child conversation and the part it plays in developing a child’s vocabulary, speaking and listening skills. Please look out for the ‘Talking Point’ in the learning letter. Each week we will add a question (about their learning) which you can pose to your child to initiate a conversation. Happy talking! 



Old/Tired Plain Coloured Sheets/Curtains 

Please send in any plain coloured sheets/bedding/curtains/large pieces of fabric that you no longer need. We will use it for outdoor fabric painting!  




We are collecting any broken appliances e.g., hairdryers, desk top keyboards (please take out any batteries and cut any cords off), cameras etc. Our children delight in investigating the appliances and taking their components apart.  

Please give any donations to your child's teacher.  


Wow Moments   

Please keep us up to date with any 'wow' moments that your child demonstrates at home e.g. trying a new food, getting themselves dressed or anything they can now do that they previously couldn’t.  Please send them in on a named 'wow' certificate so that we can celebrate them at school with the class.
