About Mrs Evans

I am one of the Reception teachers at Newdale Primary. I am the school Forest School and Geography coordinator.

Reception Dino Day

We were all a bit scared this morning when our classroom was taken over by Dinosaurs and Cave People. Thank you so much for providing the fantastic costumes, all the children looked brilliant. We have been having lots of fun solving the dinosaur addition hunt, reading a counting story called ‘ Hide-o-saurus’ , playing dinosaur hide and seek at Forest School and taking part in dinosaur crafts. We had a totally Roar-some day.

Reception Reading at home

Hi all. This week we would like the children to carry on reading books from Oxford Owl and ask please could you return any school reading books that you have at home. We will then be quarantining them ready to send some home next Monday(15th March). On Friday (12th March) we will be collecting in reading diaries in preparation for the children’s spelling test next Monday. Today we have sent a paper copy of your child’s new spellings home. If you have not received them, then please let your child’s teacher know and they can issue a new copy.

Many thanks for your continued support. The Reception Team

Extra Information for Reception Parents and Carers

Hi everyone. It was really lovely to see some of you today on our first Google Meet . I really enjoyed hearing about your lovely new toys.

Spellings will now be issued on a Monday and tested the following Monday. Your children will be issued with their new spellings on Monday 11th January.

For those of you who are reading at home you are very welcome to share your reading with us on the Evidence Me app. We would love to see how you are getting on. As you may have already read your school book, I will attach information on where you can access a range of Oxford Owl EBooks that are relevant to your child’s reading ability.

For those children who are in school :

Forest School will continue on a Monday afternoon. However children are now able to come in wearing their Forest School clothes.

Reading diaries have been collected in today and will not be handed out again until Monday. From then on reading diaries will be collected in every Friday and handed out again every Monday until further notice. This is to reduce risk of transmitting the virus. Therefore children will not require their book bags on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Many thanks for all you cooperation and support. We love seeing all of your hard work at home and really appreciate that you are sharing it with us.

Many thanks. The Reception Team
