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 18th June 2021


This week we have started reading ‘Dogs in Space: The Amazing True Story of Belka and Strelka’ by Victoria Southgate and Iris Deppe. It is true story about two stray dogs and how they were found on the streets of Moscow in the hope they would become space pioneers.

Belka and Strelka are trained at Moscow’s Space Centre in preparation for them to become the first living creatures to successfully orbit the Earth. Have a look what happens next:







In Maths, we have been exploring patterns. We have discussed the patterns we see in everyday life, looked at patterns on animals, continued repeating patterns, found mistakes in repeating patterns and made our own patterns. We are pattern crazy! What patterns can you see on your way home? Can you make a pattern using things you may find in the garden or at the park?





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!



Expressive Arts and Design/ Literacy

This week we have made something very nice for the special adults in our lives. We will share our creations with you on Sunday (unless you find a surprise in our book bags before then!)




Homework Reminder

Please continue to check online to complete homework tasks set on ‘Reading Eggs’, ‘Mathseeds’ and ‘Oxford Owl E-Library’. 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. A link can also be found on J2e for ease of access.



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.
