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!

This week we have continued to read our focus book, ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’.

We have been learning all about the different dinosaurs and trying to pronounce their names – it’s very tricky. Can you pronounce Apatosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Anchisaurus, and Scelidosaurus?  


In Magic Maths we have been recapping all of the things we have learnt so far. Some of the things we have learnt include 2D and 3D shapes, how to add and subtract, how to find one more and one less, and how to use positional language accurately.

D – ‘Teddy is behind the tree.’

C – ‘He is in between the books – he is in the library!’

A – ‘Six take away 2 equals 4 – that’s easy!’


In our Creative Curriculum session we had a very important job to do. We learnt about Mother’s Day traditions and discussed how we celebrate Mother’s Day. We then made cards for our special mums, carefully cutting out circles and joining these together to make flowers for the front of the cards. The cards looked beautiful! We hope you liked them too.



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!
