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- Thursday 19th March 2020


We have all been working had this past fortnight!


In Maths we have been learning to double numbers 1 to 10. If you double a number then you just add exactly the same amount again.

So, double 5 is 5 + 5 = 10


Our focus book this week is ‘Harry and His Bucketful of Dinosaurs.' We labelled the parts of a dinosaur and sorted herbivores and carnivores.


As Mother’s Day is on Sunday, we have all made cards for our Mums. We write the inside of the cards ourselves!


Our Wondrous Words for our book are:

Anchor Words- these are words that most children will already know the meaning of: dinosaur, diet, habitat, T-rex


Power Words- these are words that you may need to explain the definition of to most children: carnivore, herbivore, prey, extinct


Step-Up Words- these are more complex words that are you will probably need to explain the definition of to nearly all children: prehistoric, full names of dinosaurs from book


Have a great weekend!
