Coots Class is for our Reception children. The class teacher is Mrs Sims. We are lucky enough to be supported by Mrs Watson, Miss Robson and Mrs Sultana.

Dear Parents and Carers,
A very warm welcome to our reception families. We hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer and are refreshed and ready for the Autumn term. Here is some useful information and reminders for the year ahead.
Arriving at school – We can’t wait to meet you at the gate by the overflow staff carpark on Tuesday 7th September at 9 o’clock. Please can your adult collect you at 11 o’clock on that first day? Come in your new uniform, as we won’t have PE until September 14th. Please remember your water bottle. It would also be great if you have a pair of wellies (named) that can be kept in school, but don’t bring anything else at this stage.
Snacks – Every morning, we share a milk and fruit snack together. Children are always encouraged to say please and thank-you, and to wait until we are all served before we start.
Lunches – Your child can order their lunch with you at home via the Pupil Asset app, or they can make their choice themselves when we do the morning register.
Home time – At the end of the day, Coots will normally be collected at 3:10. Please let us know if someone else is collecting your child, or if they are going to afterschool club.
PE – Our weekly PE lessons are on a Tuesday, so please make sure your child is wearing their PE kit to school. Jogging bottoms and zip up fleecy style tops are great for the winter sessions.
Tapestry – We will be using Tapestry to document your child’s learning this year. Please keep a look out for emails about logging in to view this. Tapestry is also useful as a means of contact between home and school, so we look forward to sharing how your child is getting on.
Spare clothes - We have plenty of spare clothes in case of toilet accidents, but if you know your child may prefer their own, please feel free to send some spares in to keep on their peg. Thanks.
Handwriting – We introduce pre-cursive handwriting from the beginning of the year. You will hear your child talk about whooshes in and whooshes out. As the year goes on, we hope that your child will begin to join their handwriting, in the style known as cursive handwriting. There is an example on the Coots page on our school website. If you need any help with this, please ask.
We really hope your child will enjoy a fantastic reception year. Please ask if you have any questions at all about what is happening in Coots, and we will be delighted to answer them. Thank you for your support and interest.
