Reception Newsletter September 2021

Welcome to a new school year!

Mrs Brayshaw, Miss Ward, Mrs Grindrod, Mrs Parveen- Reception Brayshaw

Mr Fuller, Miss Nicholson, Mrs Landell, Miss McHugh – Reception Fuller

We hope you all had a lovely summer break and are ready to support us to help your children to work hard, have fun and achieve academically and socially during the coming year! 😊


This half term our topic is called Superhero Me!

During this half term, we will spend a great deal of time talking about our similarities and differences. We will be finding out how SUPER unique we all are. We will be talking to the children about the SUPER skills they already possess and what they need to do to make their SUPER skills into SUPER powers! We will also be finding out about real SUPER heroes (People Who Help Us) such as- doctors, nurses, fire-fighters, police officers, vets, dentists, lollipop people, life guards and last but not least- parents and teachers! The books we will be focusing on are Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.


Where in the World

We believe that our family histories need to be celebrated and shared with others, so during this half term we will be talking to the children about themselves and their families. To make this learning opportunity successful we need your help, talk to your children about you – what you do, where you come from, let them know about your history, cultural and religious background. I am sure you will be surprised by how interested they are. By the end of the half term we hope to have designed a display that acknowledges the diversity we have within the classes.


A few quick reminders

Reading books please make sure you listen to your child read each night. Talk about the pictures, practise any letters/words that are sent home and please make comments in the reading log. Book bags are to be returned daily and books will be changed twice a week. If possible, please read any books that you may have at home or access the MyON website to access online books that will support your child’s early reading. Every child has their own personal login for MyON, if you are new to Ashbury Meadow this will be sent out as soon as possible. If your child was in our Nursery setting, you should have received your details already however if you need these again, please contact your class teacher.  

Other useful websites-

Outdoor play- please make sure your child has suitable clothing, waterproof coat, wellingtons, sunhat, gloves, etc.  We go outside every day rain or shine.

Please remember to put names in all clothes, shoes, bags, lunch boxes, etc.

Homework children will have a daily homework sheet set after the first few weeks of term that supports the letter and sound they are learning in phonics or the number they are learning in maths. These do not take long to do and will reinforce their learning. It would be great to have your support in this as it is the foundation of starting to read and write and the acquisition of number. They will also have a weekly “Weekend diary” where the children will be asked to draw and write a sentence about their weekend. Please encourage them to draw pictures and label their drawing with initial sounds and words.

Attendance and Punctualityif your child is not in school on time or off school altogether, they miss out on so much learning – please make sure your child is in school, on time, every day.

Drop off and pick up- Please enter by the Myrtle Street entrance and keep a safe distance from other families. You will then be directed towards the gate where you will see a class teacher stood ready to welcome them into the classroom. From the week commencing 13th September, the school day will be from 8.45am to 3.05pm.

Tapestry online learning journey- At Ashbury Meadow we use the online learning journey called Tapestry. This will be something that you can use at home and see what your child has been learning about in school and to access homework and learning. You will be able to upload homework and observations of your child for the class teacher so it is important that any ‘log on’ issues are sorted ASAP. If your child was in Nursery at Ashbury- your log on details will the same. If you are new to the school- details will come in due course.

Looking forward to working with you over the coming year!

Children celebrating their 5th birthday this half term are:  

Ibrahima, Tuqa, Hanan, Zara, Diam, Darcie-Marie, Alireza, Hussain, Alhaji, Aisha, Yuetong, Ruby and Tobias.
