Welcome to Reception!
This half term is very busy with lots for your child to look forward to. Remember to keep an eye on the important dates on the Grove Valer!
Now the children have done a full term at school the day is much more structured and the children are in to a full timetable. Our topic for this half term is Once Upon A Time where will be reading lots of fairy tales and all our work will be based around these fairy tales.
This half term all children will have the opportunity to go to Great Barr Library and to Red House Park for our winter walk as part of our forest school sessions.
You should also have had your email to allow you to access the Tapestry link so that you can see what your child has been doing at school and for you to show us what your child has been doing at home. Any problems then please speak to any member of the Reception Team.
Could we also remind you that your child should have a complete set of spare clothes in school in a bag that they can keep on their peg. This is in case of accidents or occasions where your child may get wet or messy! If we have to send your child home in clothes they have borrowed from school, could you please make sure that you send those clothes back in to school as soon as possible.
Your child does not need a PE kit at this time. We will notify you later in the year when you will need to send a PE kit to school. This will be in the Summer term and if you have children already in school we will be making sure that both children are in the same team.
