Welcome to Reception! In the Spring Term at Fairholme, children are learning about people who help us. We will look at jobs around the school as well as in the community. If you or anyone in your family has a job which helps people please talk to your child about what you do. Whilst out and about talk about the different people that you see and what their job role is.
Remember if you need to ask the school anything please phone the office on 0208 890 2584.
Please download the ParentHub App as it is updated regularly.
We have two classes in Reception:
The children will be supported by all staff in the setting. However each child will have a Class teacher and Early Years Practitioner (EYP) that will be responsible for them.
Mrs Kamara is the Year Group Leader
Lilac Class: Mrs Kamara & Mrs Wolanin
Yellow Class: Miss Carvalho & Miss Osman

Please provide your child with a coat if the weather requires it. As it gets warmer please put sun cream on and bring a sun hat. Your child MUST have a change of clothes in school. EVERYTHING MUST BE LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME.
Please remember a named drinks bottle every day.
If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues. Also we would love to hear what we are doing well at, drop us a note or verbally tell your child's class teacher.
We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.
We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
Phonics: The children are really enthusiastic about phonics and we are seeing some amazing progress from the children in learning time. We are even beginning to see some children writing sentences and reading books. Well done!
We would like to thank the parents who have been providing support at home by reading with their child. It is very beneficial to your child's learning to practice at home and just a reminder to always send your child to school everyday with their reading folder.
Children should be encouraged to share books at home with an adult regularly to encourage enjoyment and enthusiasm for reading.
Teachers are always eager to hear your child's achievements - please share these with the class teacher.
