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!

Class Blog. 21st June 2019


We have had a lovely week in R2. We have begun to read our fantastic new focus story, ‘What the Ladybird Heard’. A tale of a little ladybird who lives on a farm with other animals, and overhears two thieves one night talking about how they will steal the prize cow. But will they get away with it, or will the ladybird scupper their plan?

We have spent time discussing animal habitats and what different farms look like, and what type of things are on a farm. We know that there are fields, large stables, lots of crunchy hay, big noisy tractors, and maybe a scarecrow.

In magic maths we have explored how to halve numbers. We have worked together to find that out number needs to be split into two parts, or shared equally into two halves. Some of us have even begun to explore how to find the quarter of a number! What a clever bunch.

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