Settling into Reception
Children have settled into Reception after visits with their parent or carers. They started in each class during the first week of the school year and either came full or part time, depending on their parent or carers choice. Activities reflected children’s interests discussed at each child’s personal visit with their new teacher. During the first few weeks, we got to know each other. Children began by learning routines and exploring the classrooms both indoors and outside. We introduced animal characters to help them begin to understand how to learn- such as ‘Concentrating Crocodiles’, ‘Go For It Gorillas’ and ‘Exploring Elephants’. These learning skills will be developed during the year.
