Next week’s theme will be continuing with the ‘Naughty Bus’. We will be re-reading the story and creating the Naughty Bus’ next adventure. We will be retelling the story through creating story maps and sequencing the order of events and encouraging the children to create their own Naughty Bus adventure. The children will also take part in creating scenes from the Naughty Bus story and junk model vehicles in the art area.
We have visited the library this week and the children were excited to select their first library book. Please ensure library books are returned to Silver Group on Wednesdays and Gold Group on Thursdays in time for our library sessions. Children can choose another book once they have returned their existing one.

We are pleased to say that all the children have started well and they have settled in and are getting to know each other and our class routines.
Observations of your child will be available to view on your personal Tapestry account. If you have not yet done so, please return your child’s photo consent form. We are currently setting up accounts for children who did not previously have one and you will receive an activation link.
Swimming will continue as normal next week. All children will be swimming every Wednesday. Please can you make sure that all your children’s clothes are clearly labelled. After swimming, the children’s clothes can get muddled up and it is very hard for us to know who they belong to.

Welcome to the first Reception newsletter of the year! This will be distributed each week so parents/carers are aware of the following week’s activities.
The children have settled in well and are getting to know each other and our class routines.
We will display our weekly timetables on the windows near the entrance to the classroom for you all to have a look at.
Next week we will be exploring the book ‘Mess Monsters’ by Beth Shoshan. The story reinforces the importance of looking after our toys and equipment and tidying up after we have finished playing. The children will be working hard to develop this skill and will learn about how they can have an effect on improving our environment, pollution and recycling. Continuing with this theme the children will have fun creating some brilliant pieces of Monster art as well as learning the Mess Monster song.
