 September

Welcome

Welcome to Cotham Gardens Primary School. By now we hope you are very excited about joining us in Reception. We are all looking forward to a very exciting year ahead! 

The week beginning the  5th September we will be starting our home visits. Please make sure you are aware of the date and time of your visit. If you are unsure please feel free to call the office  to confirm this. We look forward to coming to see both you and your child. During this visit it is time for us to remind you of our faces and spend some time playing and talking about the year ahead. 

We look forward too seeing you all soon.

What you will need

Make sure you are ready to begin the new school year with a few key items.

 

 

PLEASE ENSURE THESE ARE ALL NAMED

 

 

 

Term 1

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Our PSED focus for this term will be on building relationships with adults, and other children within the class and year group.

During the first few sessions we will be focusing on classroom expectations. We will also be learning about the different areas that we have available inside and outside the classroom and how we respect and take care of our resources.                            

 

Physical development

In preparation for term 2 please ensure you send your child in with a plain t-shirt, black or navy shorts/trouser and a pair of dark daps or trainers. All items must be named and placed in a named bag which can remain in your child's classroom.

 

 

                                                  

Transition

Schedule

At this point you should already know what group your child is in. Please follow the timetable for the first few weeks to ensure a positive and smooth transition for your child. Talk to your class teacher if you are unsure of what group you are in.
