Week 5 - week commencing 6th July

On Monday 3rd July you received an email telling you which class your child will be going into in September. There are three separate classes in Foundation Stage (Reception)

Caterpillars Class will be taught by Miss Webb supported by Mrs Dale

Honeybees Class will be taught by Mrs Shrimpton supported by Mrs Fox

Ladybirds Class will be taught by Mrs Mills supported by Mrs Zucconi


Your child's new class teacher has made a special video for you to share. You can find this by selecting the 'Classes' tab on this website. You will also see some other useful information about the class and the adults who work in it as well as a video of the classroom and a Fun Factfile about the class teacher. 

Remember, if you have any questions you want to ask the teacher you can email them to office@jhampden.bucks.sch.uk and we will provide answers next week.


Due to the unprecedented situation with Covid 19, we have been unable to organise opportunities for your child to come and visit the school and their new teacher this term.
However, we think that it is important for them to have two 'settling in' sessions in September before they start their first full week.
Therefore, in the letter that informs you of your child's class teacher, we have also given details of the timing and organisation for these settling in sessions on 3rd and 4th September 2020.
Your children will start school properly on Monday 7th September but you can decide whether you want them to attend on a part-time or full-time basis - details regarding this are also included in the emailed letter.
Please let us know whether you are opting for part-time or full-time attendance by Friday 17th July,
Please don't worry about routes and entry points at the moment - we will provide you with all the information you require in due course.

We constantly reflect on the curriculum we offer at our school, and in light of the challenges experienced this year, we are aiming to make what we offer in September even more appealing to all children. In order to do this we need to ask for your help.  We would like you to spend some time with your child to complete the attached 'All About Me' sheet, so that we can have a better picture of your child before they start in their new class.  This information will be passed to the next class teacher to help her to get to know your child really well.

The new class teacher would also love to recieve a picture or a letter from your child so they have something to get to know them by. 

 When completed, please could you return the All About Me sheet  and a photo or scan of the picture/letter via email to office@jhampden.bucks.sch.uk . Alternatively they can be put it an envelope and  posted through the school letter box. We would like all sheets, pictures/letters to be returned by Friday 10th July - thank you.
