Meet the team:
Welcome to all of our new children
It has been an absolute pleasure meeting all of your children this year and look forward to building fantastic relationships with you and your families. We understand what a big step starting school can be for both children and parents so we make the transition as easy as possible for everyone involved.
The importance of a home-school link is very important to us so please remember that the door is always open if you need to talk to us. After school is the best time as mornings are very busy settling children into new routines. Messages can be left on the board outside each classroom in the mornings. Also, every Wednesday morning the class teacher will be outside the classroom to answer any questions and chat.

Looking Forward to the Autumn Term
Welcome to Edward Bryant and to Reception. We hope that you and your children have had a lovely Summer break and enjoyed the lovely weather.
This term brings fun and excitement for the children where we will be all getting to know each other. Children will be making new friends and building relationships as this is a core part of our learning in the Early Years.
As part of our Literacy and Maths we will begin by learning and singing nursery rhymes and number songs to build up children's vocabulary and speaking skills. The children will also start learning their Phonics sounds when they come to school. They will learn songs and actions to go with each of the sounds. In addition to this we will send home the sounds of the week to the parents and carers so you can be aware of what the children are learning and help them. There is also a video on the website to support this.
We will be starting PE as soon as all the children are in school full-time and this will entail them getting dressed themselves. We will of course help them but it is a skill that will be very useful to them as we have PE twice a week.
We want every child to be happy in school. Watch in amazement how your child learns and grows in all areas this year and through their school life. We would also like to take this opportunity to ask you to read with your child every day and write in their reading journal as this is an important part of their home learning. Children reading at home can work towards getting their Bronze Reading Badge!
