Polite Reminders


We are going to be having P.E every Monday.

At the moment, we will only be removing jumpers/cardigans, and socks and shoes. Your child needs a P.E kit so that it is in school ready for when we start getting changed. On P.E day, please remove your child's earrings and tie their hair back. 


When children begin to bring home reading books, these will be changed every Tuesday.  Please write in your child’s reading record each time they read at home. If you read with your child five times, please write in their record each time. This will earn them ticks on their reading card, which will eventually lead to certificates and prizes. All information on this is will be in the front of your child’s reading record book. Please ensure you child has their book bag EVERYDAY and please ensure no water bottles or snacks are put into the bags as we don’t want our precious books getting wet and ruined.  



Once again, we thank you for your continued support.


Reception Blog ~ Friday 8th March 2024

This week our focus text is all about healthy eating! It is called, “Eat your Greens Goldilocks,” which is a lovely reimagining of the traditional tale, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”.


In Maths this week we have been exploring the concept of height and have been using small items to make and measure different things. We have investigated which is taller / shorter / tallest / shortest!

Read, Write, Inc.

This week we have been exploring reading and writing different words / texts in our phonics sets.

Here is a link to demonstrate how we say the sounds:

More of us are ready to begin blending sounds into words. You can find out more information about this here:  

‘Jolly Phonics’ has some great songs that children can learn at home to support their phonics development:        

Here is a link for you to use to explore tricky red words:




Food at Phoenix

The menus for school dinners are on the school website – please share these meals with your children as there have been some changes to the Spring term menu. The children are still working hard on developing their fine motor skills and controlling their knives and forks. We would love for this to be encouraged and continued at home please. 😊


  • Please, where possible, refrain from your children wearing shoes with laces. This is particularly hard on PE days when they cannot tie them themselves. If they do come undone this is a trip hazard.
  • Please remember that reception have PE on Mondays and therefore PE kits needs to be in school and earrings must be removed before school.


Thank you for your continued support!


Kindest regards,


The Reception Team
