A Welcome to Year R
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome both you and your child to Reception. The teachers this year in Year are Mrs Turner and Mrs Bowley. Supporting the Year R teachers are Miss Sepet, Mrs Mackender and Mrs Yates and Miss Thornton.We are looking forward to an exciting and successful year.
We are very proud of whole school appearance and hope that you will always ensure that your child arrives in school appropriately dressed in full school uniform. Please ensure that every item of clothing, footwear and equipment is clearly marked with the child’s name. School uniform is as follows:
Blue School Jumper/Cardigan (with school logo)
Charcoal Grey/Black Trousers
Charcoal Grey/Black Skirt
White Polo Shirt (with or without school logo)
Black Shoes (heel no higher than 2.5cm/1”)
Plain Black Trainers with no logos may be worn
Winter Only – Boots may be worn to and from school, however school shoes must be brought to school to change into.
Please note: Trainers are only to be worn for PE lessons and are NOT to be worn for both PE and as general school shoes on Health and Safety grounds.
Summer Term Only
Girls may wear blue gingham or blue stripe dress
Charcoal Grey/Black tailored shorts
Black, Blue or White sandals (one colour only) with heels no higher than 2.5cm (1”) White socks
PE sessions for both classes are:
Outdoor Games: Tuesday afternoon
Indoor PE: Friday morning
Please make sure that your child's PE kit is in school at all times and is clearly labelled with their full name and class. A Davington tracksuit is available from the school office should you wish to purchase one. Your child will also need a pair of trainers (different to school shoes) for outside Games sessions. If your child wears earrings please make sure that these are removed or that they are able to remove these for PE sessions. Only stud earrings may be worn.
PE kits will be sent home at the end of every term for washing.
It is important that children drink plenty of water throughout the day. Please send children to school with a named water bottle that they can use and refill during the day.
The children may bring in a snack of fruit / vegetables which can be kept in their bag until break time.
Spellings will be sent home weekly which will be tested at the end of the week. In addition to spellings there will be a Maths activity to consolidate the learning that week.
We also ask that children read for at least 10 minutes every day with an adult, this can then be recorded in your child's reading record which will be brought home daily and checked weekly. We request that children bring their reading book and record to school each day.
There may be times when we send home optional activities for you to do with your child that support the learning in the classroom.
All children have timetabled access to our wonderful library each week. They need to bring their library book back to school on our allotted day as we cannot guarantee that they can be changed at other times.
