Uniform Reminder

A reminder that children may not wear long sleeved jumpers or vests under their green polo shirts. Any vests need to be short sleeved with low necks so that they are not visible. Children need to wear a navy jumper or cardigan over their polo shirt to keep them warm. This will be adequate in school as the classrooms are very warm. 

Please ensure that all items of clothing, including hats, gloves and scarves, have your child's name on. Staff are unable to spend time looking for items of clothing that are not named.

Happy Chinese New Year to any families celebrating this weekend

Our Trip to Belmont

We have been learning about our community and where we live. We went for a walk around our local area so that we could identify features of Belmont. We found that Belmont has a church and a memorial. We saw the poppy wreaths on the memorial and were able to relate this back to our learning about Remembrance Day in November.

We walked to the high street where we found a fish and chip shop, a sweet shop, a bakery, a florist, hairdressers and grocery shops. We identified a post box and what is is used for and we saw two bus stops and the sign for the train station.

Reception Local Community Walk

Next week we will be learning about our local community. To support this learning, on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th January, we will be taking the children for a short walk to Belmont village to look at the shops, the memorial and the church. We will be taking the children in groups of 15 accompanied by Avenue staff. We will take photographs whilst on our trip and when we get back to school we will make our own map of Belmont village.

We would like to wish all our Reception families a merry Christmas and a happy holidays. Thank you so much for all the kind words and gifts that we have received.
