Templemoor Infant and Nursery School
15th September 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,
Now all the children have started and are settling well into Reception, we want to welcome you all to Templemoor. The children have had a great start; coming into school so independently, happily making new friends and getting to know the adults and classroom.
This half term our topic is called ‘Do you Want to be Friends?’ In these first few weeks we have been encouraging the children to get to know each other through simple games and helping them in their independent play.
We hope to make the transition to school as smooth as possible for you and your child. If you have any questions please ask us, we usually have more time after school but can deal with quick queries in the morning. We will also be having a ‘Meet the Teacher’ session on Monday 25th September at 2.45pm until 3.05pm, in the Reception classroom. This is an opportunity for you to come and ask any questions and find out more about your child’s typical day in Reception.
In answer to a few questions that have arisen already:
The red boxes on the bench after school contain library books. You and your child may change books as often as you like. There is an index card holder with the boxes, in here you will find a card with your child’s name on, please write down the title of the books you have borrowed and simply cross it out when you return them. If your child is in after school club a box of books is available in the hall for you to borrow books from. Please ask XClub staff.
As we like to encourage healthy eating as much as possible and due to allergies we request that you don’t send in treats for your child’s birthday. We will celebrate in school with them by singing, blowing out candles on a pretend cake and they will receive a birthday badge.
Further dates for your diary are:
Phonics evening (an opportunity for you to learn how we teach reading in school) is on Thursday 5th October at 6pm until 7pm.
Thank you for your support,
The Reception Team
