Dear Parents and Carers, 

Welcome to Reception at St Matthew's - the fun starts here! 

Normally we would be meeting you all for an introductory meeting followed by a welcome afternoon into school where you and your child could see and become familiar with the classroom and school. Unfortunately this year we are unable to do these things. Instead attached are two PowerPoints - one includes all the housekeeping you need for a successful start at St Matthew's and year in Reception; the other is for you to share with your child to enable them to become familiar with the school and the structure of the day. Please do share this with your child more than once. Choose a moment when you are chatting about starting school and then share it with them again just before you actually do start.   

On Monday 6th July at 3pm there is the opportunity to 'meet' via Google Meets. We will send out details of Google Meets, a meeting code and password nearer the time.  Please do join me for any questions that have arisen from the powerpoints, to just say hello, or for me to give your child a wave! 

We are hoping to be able to do our usual home visits in September too. We will confirm these once we have received further government guidance. 

We will look forward to ' meeting' you on Monday 6th July at 3pm via Google Meets.

Best regards,

 Mrs Bibby and Mrs Rainey
