Holy Family And St Michael's Catholic Primary School

New to Reception

welcome!

 

We want to say a warm welcome to our new children that will be joining our school from September. We are very excited to meet you all. Foundation stage helps us to settle into school, be happy, make friends and begin our primary school journey. We have made some changes to our class page to help provide some information. If any parents have any questions or anything they would like to discuss please do not hesitate to get in touch by ringing the school office.

 

Phonics:

We are following the Floppy Phonics Programme. This programme helps our children with their sounds, letter recognition, language and the skills they need to begin their reading journey. Our reading books link to our scheme and with your support we aim to enable all our children to become confident readers who love to immerse themselves in books.

 

The Write Stuff in the Early Years:

To support with our writing we use The Write stuff created by Jane Considine. This helps with our vocabulary, language, thinking and writing. We use the EYFS Rainbow which is built around three tiers-

Tier 1- The Fantastics

Tier 2- The Catalytics

Tier 3- The Realistics 

We really enjoy when Mr Fantastic visits us with new vocabulary words that are in his basket. 

 

Power Maths:

We use the Power Maths to support our Maths learning. We do this through short whole class bursts of learning and then allow the children to practise the skills in the areas of provision. 

 

Useful Information:

We do PE one day a week (Day to be confirmed) the children can come in their PE kits for the full day. The children do not need to bring their school uniform with them on this day.

We need a reading folder every day. Please check this daily as it may have important letters or information placed inside.

Any letters should be given to the office and not left in book bags as book bags are not checked.

We need a waterproof coat every day.

We need a water bottle with fresh water every day. Please note we are only allowed water in school.

Please can all belongings be clearly labelled with your child's name.

Please can we ask that you pick your child’s dinner using the Live Kitchen app.

Please can reading books be brought into school each day. It is important for you to read daily with your child and write a comment in their yellow book. Reading books will be changed as often as possible.

Homework books will be sent out on a Friday.

 

Partnership with Parents:

Dojos- for quick enquiries parents can message via Dojos. Please note that staff will only respond during school hours.

Stay and Plays will be held during each half term. This will allow you to come and work alongside your child in their classroom environment.  Please note we ask that siblings do not attend. 

 

Hi! Our names are Mrs Chadwick and Mrs Waddington. We are going to be your adults in class when you join us in Foundation. We are very excited to meet all of you.

New Starter Booklet

Please see our welcome video. This shows some of the areas of provision that we have in our classroom. The children enjoy being mathematicians, builders, explorers, readers, artists and much more!
