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.

Reception Blog ~ Friday 16th July 2021 


This week we have started to read the story ‘Tiddler’ by Julia Donaldson. Tiddler is a little fish with a BIG imagination! What ever will he come up with next? And will anybody believe him when he gets lost in the ocean? How will he get home? Here is a link to an online version of the story:




In maths, we have been revisiting all of our maths learning so far. We have been exploring counting objects, number formation, addition and subtraction, 2D and 3D shapes, measuring and pattern. We have been so busy this year and have learnt so much. Our teachers are incredibly proud of us! Remember, you can access all sorts of maths activities using Mathseeds.





 Read, Write, Inc.   

In Read, Write, Inc. this week, we continue to revisit all the sounds we have learnt to date. We have practised writing all the sounds we know. We say the words we want to write aloud, segment the word into the sounds we can hear and write the letter sounds in the sequence in which we hear them. We then put words together to write simple sentences. We have all participated in one-to-one reading sessions, or group guided reading sessions, to practise reading accurately and fluently. You can also practise your phonics on Reading Eggs and read Read, Write, Inc. books through the Oxford Owl E-Library!




Sports Day

We all participated in sports day this week and had so much fun (even though we didn’t have an audience). We did a standing long jump, a timed balance on one leg and a bean bag throw, scoring points for each bean bag to hit the target. We all tried really hard and had a lovely time.






Homework Reminder

As we approach the end of term, please work through the ‘Peaks Challenge’ on Reading Eggs: Fast Phonics. Children work through learning and activity sessions at their level. Each time they complete a task, children will be rewarded with coins and/or gems. Please also continue to explore Mathseeds to work on numbers, shapes, and measures. You can find further information about these new resources on this class page. If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher.



If you have any questions regarding learning or homework, please speak to your child’s class teacher who will be more than happy to help. Please note, our email address has been changed to:
