Mrs P Welch's Class Nurs/Rec1 2019 - 2020

Mrs Welch

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Reception

 

In Reception  ‘We try to follow Jesus in everything we do.’  We work together and help everyone shine and this positive attitude is reflected in our learning throughout the year. Although, we have a lot of work to do at St Margaret Mary’s we try to make our learning as fun and exciting as possible. If you ever pop into school, you'll see that we're always ready to welcome you with a smile.

Teacher: Mrs Welch

School day in Reception starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.00pm

We welcome parents/carers to come into our EYFS unit with their child each morning for stay and play from 8:45 - 8:55am. Children will be encouraged to practise their letter formation during this time. We then 'shake the tambourine' which is the sign to let parents know it is time for registration.

Each day during registration we choose one child from each class to be a 'special helper'. The 'special helper' chooses three of their peers to give them a compliment. The special helper can then sit on the 'special helper' chair and will have the opportunity to do little jobs and stand at the front of the line that day. You can see who has been the 'special helper' each day on the notice on display in your child's classroom. We also have a 'star of the week', this is a child who is picked for the weekly certificate in our school assembly for doing something good that week. The 'star of the week' notice is also pinned up in your child's class. Children are also encouraged to do a piece of independent writing throughout the week for our V.I.P. box. Children are asked to do a piece of writing during there free choice choosing time which they can then put in the V.I.P. box with the chance of being selected to sit at the 'V.I.P table' and will get a small treat during snack time on a Friday.

Uniform: Uniform should always be well-presented and it would be very helpful for staff if children could have their names on their uniform especially ties and jumpers. 

Outdoor Provision: We offer our children continuous outdoor learning throughout the year so we ask parents to ensure that children have suitable clothing that is appropriate for all weathers, for example, sun hat, wellies, coat. Also during the hot weather we ask that parents apply sun cream prior to bringing them in school.

Reading Books: We send home reading books every Monday for parents to read with their child and would like them returned back to school every Friday. Book bags can be purchased from the school office.

Milk and fruit: All children are provided with a piece of fruit and a carton of milk every afternoon during our 'snack time'. 

P.E: Children in reception usually go over to the main hall every week for P.E. Children are not required to have a P.E. kit during the Autumn term but they will then need a P.E. kit for the Spring term (first week back in January after Christmas holidays) Our P.E. kit is a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts and black pumps. It would be really beneficial if parents could encourage their children to start dressing and undressing themselves as this develops the children's independence, saves a lot of time and counts towards your child's early learning goal in the Physical development area of learning. We also strongly encourage parents to put/write name labels in all items of children's clothing and footwear.

Our expectations

Our expectations are high and we strive to foster the development of the children through provision of a planned, engaging, stimulating, safe and secure environment which is structured with developmental needs in mind.  We also aim to stimulate emotional and spiritual growth. 

 

At St Margaret Mary’s RC Primary School, our children are growing to be:

Grateful for our own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with our gifts, becoming men and women for others.

Attentive to our experience and to our vocation; and discerning about the choices we make and the effects of those choices.

Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by our just actions and forgiving words.

Faith-filled in ours & their beliefs and hopeful for the future.

Eloquent and truthful in what we say of ourselves, the relations between people, and the world.

Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways we use our learning for the common good. Curious about everything; and active in our engagement with the world, changing what we can for the better.

Intentional in the way we live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example we set to others.
