Jewell Reception Starters September 2018

You will have heard now from Bournemouth Borough Council where your child is going to be starting “Big School.”

All our teachers are very busy getting things ready. Very soon, you will be asked to complete a transition form by your child’s current pre-school, nursey or childminder. This information will then be handed to us and our teachers can start to plan which class your child will be going in to…Sharks or Turtles.

When this has been decided, you will receive a letter from us. We have had a few calls asking about Welcome to Reception meetings and sessions planned for the children. These will also be in the letter you receive, but below are the confirmed days and times:

On Wednesday 4th July, we shall be having our Transition day. Your child will be able to come in at 9.45am for a Stay and Play hour in their new class. During this time, we shall hold a “Welcome to Reception” meeting for all the parents and carers. It is really important that you attend as we will be giving you lots of useful information. There will be a few forms to fill in and you will be able to buy your child’s first uniform. Order forms will be available to buy further uniform. The price list is available on our website.

Children in Reception have slightly different start times to help them adjust to their routine at school:

Tuesday 4th September:                9:15 – 10:15

Wednesday 5th September:         9:00 – 11:45

We look forward to meeting you all on Wednesday 4th July at 9:45am, but don’t forget to tell your child to keep an eye out for a special letter to them in the post!
