Information for Parents
Stockton Wood is a Restorative School. In Reception, we use emojis to check-in to share how we are feeling and this helps us to manage our feelings.
We are sure the children are looking forward to a great year of learning, including listening to stories by new authors, learning outdoors, exploring the world around them as scientists and being physically active. We look forward to making many memories with them!
Class Dojos are used to celebrate achievements and praise efforts!
Although we will not require children to come into school wearing their PE kits for a couple of weeks, please find some information below for reference.
RBG P.E Day: Monday
RH P.E. Day: Thursday
P.E. kit includes: a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts/ jogging bottoms and a pair
of black pumps or trainers to take part in PE. Your child can come to school
wearing their P.E. kit on their class days.
We will send a letter home informing you of when children will need to start wearing their PE kits on Wednesday’s.
Reading is at the heart of everything we do, so please try and read with your
child every night. Ask them questions about what they have read, encouraging them to talk about the book, whether it is a story or non-fiction. This will help them with their reading comprehension.
Reading books are changed on Wednesdays, but your class teacher
can change your book again if you have been a reading enthusiast at home!
Your child should bring a water bottle to school, containing water only.
Look out for our homework matrix! These activities will explore our wider curriculum, offer creative challenges and an opportunity to earn dojos!
