Reception Blog Week 1

What a Wonderful First Week in Reception!


Wow! Wow! Wow! What an absolutely amazing start our new Reception children have made to Collingham school! We are so incredibly proud of them all for being so brave and confident when coming into school on their own for the first time. There are so many new routines to learn at school: changing shoes, hanging up coats, putting snacks in drawers, washing their hands, lining up, sitting quietly on the carpet, tidying up our many toys and areas….the list goes on! The children have utterly astounded us by how quickly they are picking up all these routines! All the children have been answering the register and telling us their lunch choices, many saying ‘please’ (“cheese please!” “pizza please!”) without being asked to or reminded which makes us really happy. Everyone has been sitting together on the carpet to listen to and talk about stories about starting school – lots of them are just like our school! The children have loved exploring and playing in all our new areas of provision and are looking after our toys and equipment really well – keep this up Reception!


Have a lovely weekend – we think the children might sleep well! Enjoy looking at the photographs.
