Wow Moments

Dear Parents and Carers,

We get as excited as you do watching the children grow and learn new skills. When we see the children doing something that shows new learning, we take a picture or make an observation to go in their learning journey. We are aware that the children also are learning all the time at home, and we would love to hear from you when you see them doing something that makes you proud of their new skills.

You will find some WOW cards in your child’s book bag.  These WOW cards are a chance for you to share with us things that your child achieves at home.  If you see them doing something that makes you think, “WOW” then write it down for them and they can bring it in to share with us.  This could also be achievements in sports or dance activities. If you have a photo of their achievements you could send in a copy with your WOW card.

We have uploaded the end of year expectations for Reception onto our Page of the school website (above). This will give you an idea of the expectations we have in our classes.

If you have any questions, please come and see one of us.

Thank you for your help,

We look forward to reading them!

Mrs Turner and Mr Farmer

The children will need to bring their uniform in a labelled bag to change into after the session.
