New Reception Parents Information
Due to the current closure, we are unable to organise our meeting for parents at this time. We have therefore put together some information about our Early Years education at St Patrick's for your information.
Welcome to our New Starters page. Here we will begin to post information and activities to help your child to get ready for their first days at school in September.
We look forward to meeting you all!
Have a go at drawing and colouring a picture of yourself and writing your name underneath.
Have a go at recognising the colour of things around your house, garden or if you are out on a walk with your family. Draw and colour some of the things you see. Remember to write your name on all your pictures.
Count objects around your house, for example, count how many apples you have in the fruit bowl, count how many knives or forks you need at dinner time, count how many flowers outdoors.
Have a go at writing numbers 0-5. Remember to write you name on your work.
I can't wait to see everything you have done. Keep them so you can show me at a later date.
See you all soon.
Hello to all the new children and parents,
I just wanted to introduce myself as we aren’t able to meet in person at the moment.
I’m Mrs Healey and I will be your child’s teacher in September. We are also very lucky to have a wonderful Teaching Assistant, Mrs Knowles in our class with us.
We are looking forward to your child starting school with us in September. We understand it is quite a big transition for the children and we like to settle them in with a few half days, and then they come to school full time. We want your child to feel comfortable coming to school and develop a love of learning.
I just wanted to give you a few ideas to help prepare your child for starting school in September. These are just some ideas; please don’t feel you have to have your child doing everything.
Just a few things for you to do together:
Make everything fun and just include it into your normal daily activities.
I can’t wait to meet you all soon.
