Thank you for your understanding during the Reception bubble closures which ends at the end of day Monday, 19th July. The children may return to school on Tuesday 20th July, unless otherwise advised.
The children will return for their final 4 days in Reception. During this short week, the children will have an opportunity to visit their new classes and meet their Year 1 teachers. We will write to you with more information about this.
It is hard to believe that we only have 2 weeks to go until the end of your child’s Reception year with us. We will be writing to you in due course to explain the transition process for your child as they move onto Year 1 in September. We will also inform you of your child’s Year 1 class and staff who will teach them. We would like to assure you that all Reception children will move onto Year 1 in September. We have already begun the process of preparing the children for this change and you may notice some changes in their behaviour over the next few weeks as this can be an overwhelming experience for children. It is important to talk to your child, recognise their feelings and reassure them as they prepare to make this change. If you have any specific concerns, please speak to Reception staff.
You will also receive your child’s end of year Reception report over the next two weeks. The last day at school is Friday 23rd July 2021.
