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 a fantastic new focus book called ‘The Rainbow Fish’. The story is all about a beautiful fish with shiny scales. Rainbow fish is selfish and he is mean. Rainbow Fish feels sad that he has no friends so goes to see a wise octopus who tells him to share his beautiful scales with the other fish in the ocean. What will Rainbow Fish decided to do?  



In Magic Maths we have been counting in groups of 2s, 10s and 5s. We have counted pairs of socks, crayons, skittles, hoops and stinky toes!

B – “10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90” Everyone- “100!”

K – “2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20!”

H – “5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50!”



In Creative Curriculum sessions we made our own Rainbow Fish using clay and glittery sequins.

P – “First we squeezed the clay.”

T – “Then we rolled it with a rolling pin.”

B – “Then we cut round the fish with a plastic knife.”

TB – “Next we used glitter to make it sparkle.”

B – “And sequins!”

A – “After we put on googly eyes.”

S – “Finally we left it to dry on the drying rack.”



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!
