In preparation for next week could you please print off and send in a family photograph ready for our learning about families next week.
If you don’t have a printer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and title the email : ‘Your child’s first name RCR Family Photo’ e.g. Lucy RCR Family Photo
Please do remember to send this picture in by Monday as the children always LOVE showing their picture to their friends and it makes them feel very special once the photograph go up in our role play area.
The children made a fantastic start to their first week in Reception. They had a lot to find out between learnng new names, making new friends, exploring the classroom, learning the High 5 and some of the green and red choices in school. They were brilliant and took it all in their stride – I hope you are as proud of them as we are! Even though it was half days, I’m sure lots of them were very tired by the afternoons, so I hope you made the most of the weekend and had lots of fun and relaxation before we start full days today!
Please remember, there is no need to bring any snacks or packed lunches for the children – we will provide that for them. They do all need a labelled water bottle, so don’t forget to bring one. We are helping to look after our planet by not providing disposable cups, so they really do need one so they can take their own steps towards independence and staying hydrated.
Our PE is every Wednesday (see our timetable https://rpsrcr2019.wordpress.com/timetable/) but it really helps us if your child keeps their PE kit at school in case we need a change of clothes. Don’t forget it tomorrow if you haven’t already got it.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help us run activities on a Thursday afternoon 12.45-1.45. These will be Art and also outdoor learning (gardening, observations, forest school activiites). If you are interested and able to commit to doing this for a term or for the year, please let us know.
We need your help keeping our junk modelling area well stocked. Please bring any collections you have of recycling materials (and also a great way to use non-recyclable plastics!) such as cereal boxes, kitchen rolls, egg boxes, washed out yoghurt pots and bottles etc. For safety, we can’t take empty glass pots or anything with sharp edges such as opened tins etc.
We also will be running an Open Morning on Friday 27th September from 8.30 – 9.15. This is an opportunity to drop in and see your child’s classroom, find out about our routines and some information about the curriculum. There will be teas, coffees and cake in the hall following this so you can get to know some of the other parents too. If you are able to make it, we look forward to seeing you. Please don’t worry if you can’t attend, we will be able to share all the information you need on the blog too.
