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!

Class Blog – 12.10.18

Wow what an exciting week in R1.

We started our new topic book ‘Room on the Broom’ which the children have enjoyed reading along to. We even acted out the story using lots of props and many of the children played the characters within the story, whilst others helped to support narratively… the children loved this especially when Mrs Truman was the scary dragon!


During maths this week we have worked so hard to continue to practice counting numbers to 20 through various songs including the ‘number Rock’ (using our air guitars!). We have continued familiarising ourselves with numbers and counting one to one correspondence as well as looking at the mathematical language of counting objects ‘altogether’. We have even been introduced to the add/plus sign in maths and looking at how we count groups of objects adding them altogether! The children have been making the add sign using their arms!


Within Creative Curriculum this week we have been making an obstacle course outside and looking at ways to fly past an obstacle on our broomstick; over, through, around or under! The children then designed and drew their very own obstacle course as well as labelled pictures of all the obstacles they used. Some of the children used construction to build their own obstacles!


We shall continue the fun next week with ‘Room on the Broom!’ Enjoy your weekend R1 keep up the hard work!
