- Walk to and from school (without being carried or using a pushchair).
This year the EYFS curriculum has been updated nationally, which is a very exciting time for us all. As such, we are changing some of the things we used to do and exploring new topics!
Autumn 1 Topic
This term our topic is 'My Community and I'. The children will be exploring all about themselves and the people around them. We will learn about different family structures, different people who live and work in Hagley and the places that we see in our community. We will also be looking to engage with parents to help us with this...watch this space!
Early on in the year we will begin to send home reading books. Initially these books will mainly be picture books, however this will change as we teach phonics and your children learn to read. We may also ask for other home learning contributions throughout the year linked to our topics. All of our home learning communication is done via Seesaw. Follow this link for some help with how to use it! https://www.loom.com/share/2130dc5f5bff4bdba2d4442b80a6014c
Reception children only need the following kit for PE:
- Gold polo shirt with school logo
- Green shorts (football style, not lycra) or skort (combined shorts/skirt)
- Black pumps
Please note that Reception children do not need the outdoor tracksuit/hoodie or trainers.
