We are looking forward to welcoming our new Reception intake in September 2020.
This year has been very different in lots of ways and we appreciate that you may not have had the opportunity to get to know us as well as you would have liked. However, we want you to be reassured about your child starting school with us and have put together some information, below, that might help you.
If you do want to speak to us, you are more than welcome. Please contact the school on 01268 729885 and ask to speak to Mrs Waller or Miss Goulding. Alternatively, you can email your queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reception 2020 - a message from the staff
Our Reception is a creative, fun and warm environment where your child will explore and learn. Learning new skills is important in Reception and this is achieved through our continuous provision and child initiated activities. We support the children to develop language skills, friendships, follow structures and routines allowing them to develop the skills to become independent active learners.
Normally be this time in the year we would already have had our new intake introduction meeting where you would have had the opportunity to meet the headteacher, the reception class teachers and members of the senior leadership team. You would have been able to taste our delicious school dinners, been advised on school uniform expectations and you would have asked lots of questions. We would also have had the opportunity to meet your amazing children during a transition week.
Unfortunately due to the current pandemic and uncertain times we have been unable to do this. So we have made you these videos to introduce ourselves and the reception class environment. We are still working not sure what our classrooms will look like in September but we are working very hard on this.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all to the Felmore community as you start your magical, amazing learning journey with us.
Now you have met Mrs Waller and Miss Goulding, your teachers, we thought it would be nice for you to see the other adults who will be working with you in class. They are called Mrs Miles, Mrs Bennett and Miss Rae.
You will find, below, a copy of the letter that was sent to all of our new entrants about September 2020 and some information from Pacey (who have kindly agreed to let us use their Preparing For School document on our website).
