We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to the
Grange Park Reception page.
We will update this page to give you as much information as we can about your child's learning.
Our half termly topics in Reception are:
Autumn 1- All about me
Autumn 2 - Celebrations
Spring 1 - People who help us
Spring 2 - Magical stories
Summer 1 - Living and Growing
Summer 2 - Under the sea
Please can you remember to sign your child's reading diary every time you read with them. This allows us to know how your child did at home with their reading and how we can work together to support your child's reading progress.
From week beginning the 5th January 2017 your child will need their full PE kit. The kit will stay in school until half term when it will be sent home and to be returned after half term break.
Shorts/ tracksuit bottoms (weather permitted)
Please support your child to recognise, read and writing all set 1 and 2 sounds. If your child is in Mrs Constantinou's phonic group or Mrs Kirtsides/ Husseyin's group, please can you practise set 3 sounds they have learnt so far.

When you see your children's learning books either when they are sent home or at a Parent's Evening, you may see a few abbreviations.
Just so you are aware of what these abbreviations mean we have uploaded a list. Please take the time to familiar yourself with them.
