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



We have a new focus book this week in R1. As part of our Black History Month celebrations we have been reading the story  ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Browne.


Handa lives in Kenya. Handa decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village. On the way a series of cheeky animals steal something from Handa's basket, which she's carrying on her head. When Handa reaches Akeyo, will she have anything left to offer her friend?


This week in ‘Magic Maths’ we have been exploring ‘one more than’. We have counted the objects, added one more practically and have found one more on the number line. Some of us have even started to explore ‘one more than’ as a number sentence!  


In our Creative Curriculum sessions we have looked at where we live and where Handa lives. We have looked at environments, houses and animals in both locations and discussed the similarities and differences.
