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!

The Maths Factor


Creative Curriculum:

This week we would have been reading the story ‘Peter Pan’. Here are some ideas for you to use at home when working with your child.

  • Read ‘Peter Pan’. There are plenty of online video stories via Youtube or you can read the story here:
  • Children design their own Neverland map to help Peter Pan/ Captain Hook look for treasure.
  • Children draw a picture and write about the treasure they’ve found. Encourage children to verbalise adjectives (describing words) and write these down. Extend to children using their adjectives to generate sentences.
  • Make clock faces to practise telling the time
