Welcome Message


Change over Tuesday

Reception reading books will be changed every Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their book bag, reading book(s) and reading record. Please bring these items every day as your child will regularly read with an adult in school.



Please ensure your child has full kit in school throughout the half-term. Kits will be sent home each holiday for washing. Hair should be tied up and earrings must be removed on these days. If children are wearing earrings they will not be allowed to join in with P.E lessons. P.E days may change from week to week. You will be informed on a weekly basis so please look out for messages on our classroom door.


Welcome Wednesday

Every Wednesday parents/carers are invited into classrooms from 8:45-9:00 am to share a book with their child. We hope you can make it!

The last Wednesday of each half term is an extended ‘Welcome Wednesday’! Parents/carers are invited into school to spend some time with their child exploring the activities that take place in Reception. The session will take place from 9:00-10:00 a.m. and each session will have a different curriculum focus. More information will be given nearer the time. Please look out for the letter inviting you to join us!


R1 Class Blog



This week we have a new focus book, ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson. The story is about two thieves who are planning to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. A tiny ladybird overhears their plan and, with the help of the other farm animals, tricks the thieves with a plan of her own.



In Magic Maths we have been looking at halves.

B – “If you cut a pizza right down the middle, that will give you halves.”

A – “A half is split by two.”

H – “I use my fingers to find half of six – it’s three.”

S – “A quarter is split in four pieces.”



In Creative Curriculum sessions we have been looking at animal habitats. We have focused on the animals you would find at the farm, just like in our story this week.

T – “The duck lives on a pond at the farm.”

K – “The pig lives in a muddy sty.”

Ru – “The cow lives in a grassy, green field.”

Ra – “The cats live in a big barn and chase rats.”



Thank you to all parents who are returning books and book bags daily, which enables us to read with your child regularly in school. Thank you also to parents who are completing homework with the children weekly!
