Explorers 1

Explorers 1 is a Reception class taught by Miss Fraser and supported by Mrs Burns.

Dates for Week One:
Wednesday 8th September – You will have received your one hour session to come in and view our EYFS setting with your child. This is the perfect opportunity to ask us any questions.
Thursday 9th September – Your child will stay at school 9:30 – 11:30. One adult is then allowed to come and stay for dinner with them. This is an opportunity for your child to practise carrying their tray and using a knife and fork.
Friday 10th September – Your child will stay in school 9:00 – 3:00.


Start and End times:
Our day starts at 9:00 and finishes at 3:15
Please wait until 9am to come into the Reception Garden. You are then able to come to the classroom doors to drop off your child. Miss Smith’s classroom is on the left and Miss Fraser’s classroom is on the right. It would be best to leave your child as soon as you drop them so they get used to being independent.

For pick ups, again, please come into the Reception Garden and line up at the appropriate classroom door.  Please allow space for other parents and children when entering and exiting the school.


Please bring your child’s reading diary (when you receive one) into school every Friday. They will receive any phonics sounds to learn on a Friday. Reading Diaries can be signed by yourself and will be signed by a member of staff when we have read with them. This will happen once the children have began phonics. We will keep you updated with this Via the Class Dojo App.


Class Dojo
Class Dojo will be our main form of communication this year. Feel free to message us if you have any questions or concerns. All updates will go on there so please keep an eye out for those.


PE kit
Please bring your child’s PE kit in at the start of the year and we will keep it on their peg. PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and some black plimsolls. Any practise you can do with your child to help them get dressed and undressed independently would support them greatly.


If your child would like milk, please log on to parent pay £9.10 – your child will receive milk the following Monday.
