Welcome to Reception

 

 

Welcome to all parents and children. We are really impressed with how well the children have settled and made new friends.

 

They have managed lunchtimes very well. If you can use the menus on the website to help your child select a lunch each day, this would really help any uncertainty when making their choices. The children make their choices when they come in first thing in the morning. 

 

Please note no snacks are needed as a fruit/vegetable snack is provided daily. If you wish your child to have milk please sign up to the 'Cool Milk Scheme' they then provide the school with the milk for your child. 

 

Children need to bring in a water bottle daily, which we will refill throughout the day. Please ensure these are named as children can have the same style. 

 

We have already noticed that numerous items of uniform are not labelled, please ensure everything is labelled as we know uniform is not cheap and children often take off cardigans/jumpers and even shoes throughout the day and when an item is not labelled we struggle to reunite it with the correct child. 

 

Can children please bring in a pair of wellingtons that are labelled and that you are happy for them to leave in school so they can access the outside area even in the rain. Children need to also have a named coat in school daily. 

 

We have set up Tapestry for all new parents and we hope that you have been able to see what your child has been doing in class. If you do have any issues logging on please see your child's class Teacher. You should receive an email link and be prompted to set your own password, in the first instance this is more successful if done on a laptop or computer rather than ipad or phone. You can then install the app on any device. 

 

Tapestry is our main tool for communicating with you and we ask that you use this if you need to contact us. There is a section called Care Diary which can be used to tell us if you have any concerns or just simply want us to be aware of something. We will provide more training on the use of Tapestry should you feel you need it. 

 

We will also use Tapestry to share your child's learning. 

 

Your child will have PE on the following day -

Ladybirds - Tuesday

Dragonflies - Thursday 

Bumblebees - Friday

 

We will inform you in advance of when PE sessions will start. On your child's PE day they will come to school in their PE kit rather than their uniform. Please note this needs to be Greswold's PE kit, this can be found on the uniform list. 

 

Thank you so much for all the positive feedback so far and we look forward to getting to know you and your child even more in the coming weeks.
