Are you thinking about applying for a Reception place for your child at our school for September 2019? We are delighted to offer two open afternoons where you can come in and find out more about our school, meet the staff and ask any questions you may have. You will also be able to have a tour of the school.
We are offering two open afternoons:
Tuesday 20th November 2018 at 2.30 pm
Tuesday 15th January 2019 at 2.30 pm
These afternoons will give you the opportunity to visit the school before applications are due in at the end of January.
If you would like to book a place for one of the open afternoons, then please ring the School Office on: 01803 328264. We look forward to meeting you.
Foundation 2 is the name of our Reception Class.
The class teacher is Mrs Lawrenson, who is also Foundation Stage lead. Mrs Bell will be the teaching assistant in the mornings and Mrs Brown in the afternoon, Mrs Lee will also be helping in F2.
In Foundation 2 children continue to explore and make sense of the world through play. The children have open access to the inside and outside learning areas. We also learn the important skills of reading, writing, handwriting and mathematics through play and in short adult directed learning.
It is VITAL that your child reads their Guided Reading book at least 3 times a week and that they share other stories regularly at home. It is important to practise robot talk and write in contexts that make sense to the child, e.g., shopping lists, cards etc. It is alwys fun to count objects such as stairs, spoons, fruit etc. but remember to count backwards too!
The children need to keep their P.E. bags, waterproofs and wellies in school every day, they get lots of use! It is useful to have a spare set of clothes in their P.E. bags too.
