1st Autumn Term 2019
We have a fun-filled half term ahead of us in Reception as we explore, play, learn and make new friends.
All children will be full time in Reception from Monday 16th September 2019.
At Hollin, we encourage reading for pleasure and the enjoyment of books.
Your child will bring home a book that they can share with you each day. Please take this opportunity to sit and enjoy a story with your child.
Children in Reception can change their book as often as they like. All we ask is that their reading record is signed by an adult to help us see when your child has finished a book.
Contributions of 50p per week to our class fund would be gratefully received. This goes towards the cost of providing extra resources for activities such as cooking, making play-dough and special snacks on a Friday.
Please make sure that all clothing is practical and easy for your child to manage. All clothes MUST be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Please provide your child with a pair of wellies that can be kept in school. Wellies will be required for daily outdoor learning.
Alongside the daily physical development activities in Reception, we will be having a weekly PE session with Mr Vyse on a Thursday. Children in Reception are not required to change into a PE kit at this point in the year.
If you wish to celebrate your child’s birthday by sending treats to share with the other children, we are asking that instead of sweet treats, you consider sending a ‘Birthday Book’….a book of your choice that can be shared with the class and then added to the class book area.
