Pegasus Class Newsletter - Reception

Autumn 1

May I take this opportunity to welcome you into the Copp family. This is such a special time in the school life of your child and we look forward to getting to know you and your child. As they put on their uniform for the first time I am sure you'll be brimming with pride but wonder where the time has gone since they were a baby!

Early Years is an exciting time in the education of your child. We enable them to become confident and independent learners by creating a curriculum that is led by the children's interests. Together adults and children plan what we will learn.  It means everyone is motivated and engaged in what we do ensuring we are always learning.  Our ideas can take our learning in many exciting directions.

  • Pegasus Class - alongside myself and Mrs Jones, Mrs Hart will be a teaching assistant in our class in the mornings this year.  We will also have Mrs Taylor with us on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon.
  • Welcome Service- I would like to invite you to a Welcome Service in Church on Wednesday 13th September at 9am followed by refreshments. All welcome
  • Reception Meetings - On Wednesday 20th September between 3.15pm and 6pm there will be an opportunity for you to drop in to school to discuss how your child has settled in. You will also have the opportunity to look around the classroom environment.  There will be chance to have a look at their Learning Journey where we will have a collection of photographs and observations from the first 2 weeks in school. (Please note that Year 1  have their drop in the day before on the Tuesday.  If this  is more convenient you can attend then instead)
  • PE  - will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday this term.
  • Reading diaries - are an important way of communicating between home and school.  We will write comments in and if you have any queries or messages please do the same.  We will check them every day.  Of course you can always speak to us before and after school, ring school or message us on Dojo.
  • ClassDojo - Dojo is a lovely way to share experiences from school and home. In this pack you will have a parent and child code to use.  Last year we gave out just team points for super behaviour, work etc. This year, as a school, we are only using Dojo Points. Children can change their avatar and can share experiences and learning form home.

If you have any questions please come and see us,

Home slips - We always like to celebrate what the children do at home.  It is a great way to get the children talking about home and the people who are special to them.  Fill in a home slip to tell us what you have been doing e.g. did you go to a party, stay at grandma's house or went to the park? etc.

WOW moments - what has your child done that has made you stand back and think 'WOW! When did you learn to do that or I didn't know you could do that'.  Have a look at 'Characteristics of Learning' section of our page to see what you could be looking out for.
