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 16th January 2020


We have all had a lovely time this week!


In Maths we have been learning about capacity. We have been using the words full, empty, nearly full, nearly empty, half full and half empty. We had a great time experimenting with different containers and objects.


Our focus book this week is still 'Winnie in Winter.' We are still learning about the seasons. We have sorted clothes by in which season they might be worn, and wrote some labels for this.


Our wondrous words for this topic are:

Anchor (words that need little explanation): cold, weather, snow,

Power (words that need some explanation): nest, habitat, owl, owlets, talons, swoop

Step-Up (more complex words): nocturnal, predator, tawny owl


Next week they will be:

Anchor (words that need little explanation): bird, tree, home

Power (words that need some explanation): seasons, ice, freeze, change, defrost, melting

Step-Up (more complex words): hibernate, icicles, igloo



Have a great weekend!
