Reception Starters - September 2020

Welcome to Oldswinford C.E. Primary School

Believe, achieve and shine brighter together

We look forward to welcoming your child and yourselves to our school in September. 




We will be having lots of settling in activities this term, especially as the children have had so many different experiences during lockdown. We all need to get to know each other and form strong relationships. Settling the children into school so they feel safe, cared for and happy, is the most important goal.  

We shall be starting a topic all about People who help us. We thought this would relate to the children very well and they would certainly know all about the NHS! 

We can explore hospital staff, dentists, opticians, vets, police officers, fire fighters and those who help us in school such as the cook, the cleaners, the office staff and the site manager.

Phonics/writing, reading and maths

We will begin by finding out what the children already know, then build from there. We will be introducing letter sounds, numbers, counting and sorting. We appreciate that many children did not go back to their pre-schools so we can gradually see where we need to work from and help them learn according to their needs. This is something we would do anyway when they come into Reception.

We hope you enjoy the video below of the environment to share with your child. 


 Keep safe and hope to see you soon.
