Reception Intake September 2021

Welcome to Long Row Primary School

 

 

Our EYFS class page will soon have some videos for you to watch, so keep an eye out!! You will find it under CLASS PAGES. Our page is called EYFS and has a picture of a clownfish painting at an easel!!!

Hello 👋

 

Thank you to everyone who joined our welcome meeting (Thursday 1st July 2021). 

Unfortunately, we do not have a recording of the meeting, but if you were unable to join us then please watch the video that is below. This was recorded last year but will give you the main bits of information you require.

Also, you will find a copy of our information booklet attached below (scroll down to the bottom of the page to find lots of attachments - it is listed as 'Reception Booklet').

You will also find a menu for school dinners and information about our uniform.

 

😊👍😊👍😊👍

 

As explained during the meeting, we will be sending out more information about class teachers and transition dates. Transition days will be taking place on Thursday 2nd September 2021 & Friday 3rd September 2021 (10:00am start and 2:00pm finish on these two days).

 

All children will then start 'normal' days on Monday 6th September 2021. 😊

 

** Children will finish school at 3:10pm each day and will need collecting from our Nursery/Reception playground area. If this should change due to government guidance, then we will let you know over the Summer holiday period. **

Thank you,

Mrs Jones 🐠🐟

 

 

This is our information video from last year - please feel free to watch it but some bits might have changed for this year.

We have thought of a few things you can do at home to help you become independent and ready for school:

 

  • We bet you have got your uniform, shoes and coat ready for starting school, so have a try at getting yourself dressed all by yourself and learn how to put your shoes and coat on independently. Don't panic if you can't do everything by yourself as we will just be delighted to see you have a try by yourself before asking for help - we will help you with the tricky bits! 😇

 

  • At school you will have a peg, in the cloakroom area, with your name on it, so try and learn to recognise your name (when written). You will then be able to find things that belong to you easily. You don't need to be able to write your name as we will teach you this at school! 😊

 

  • Try going to the toilet by yourself so you can clean yourself afterwards and wash your hands - we imagine that you will all be very good at hand washing! You will be asked to wash your hands quite a lot at school!! 💧💧💧🙈

 

  • Play lots of games with your family - this will help you to become really good at sharing and turn taking. We have got lots of games to play at school! ⭐

 

  • At school, you will be asked to use a knife and fork to eat your lunch. 🍽️ It would be really helpful if you could use these all by yourself, so have a go during your family mealtimes. The teachers will stay with you at lunch during the first few days so don't worry as we will help you.

 

Don't worry if you can't manage everything by yourself but remember that practice makes perfect and the teachers will always help you when you are struggling!! 🤗
