Thank you to all those who could make it this morning for our Reception Curriculum Meeting. We had a fantastic turnout and it was wonderful to see both familiar and new faces to Cypress. We are so impressed with how well the children have settled in to their new classes and how quickly they are making friends and learning the routines.
Mrs Parker gave a very comprehensive and informative overview of how our phonics and reading are taught at Cypress and the class teachers talked through how a typical day in Reception might look, as well as the maths curriculum.
For anyone who was unable to attend the meeting, or for reference, here is a link to the Reception Curriculum Meeting Presentation
Nationally, all children will be assessed by their class teacher within six weeks of them starting in reception. Here is the link for further information regarding the Reception Baseline Assessment
We thank you all as parents and carers for all the support you are giving your children in helping with the transition to school and know that we will continue to work in partnership for the benefit of all the children here at Cypress.
The Reception Team
