Here you will find information about the class and can find out what we have been doing in the classroom. Please check back regularly for updates.


 Polite Reminders



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

At the moment, we are letting the children get dressed into their PE uniform and keeping our shoes and socks off to participate in our indoor PE lessons. On P.E day, please remove your child's earrings and tie their hair back. 


When children 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.  


In R3, we give out our class homework on a Friday and need it returned to school on the following Wednesday. Please ensure that homework is completed and returned on or before that Wednesday. Thank you. 



Once again, we thank you for your continued support.

Reception Blog ~ Friday 30th June 2023

This week we have continued looking our poem all about dinosaurs – ‘Roar!’

The poem is about how the dinosaurs move and the sounds they make. The poem rhymes and has lots of action words that we have been moving around too. We have been rehearsing saying our poem aloud from memory using the actions to help us.   

Read, Write, Inc.

This week in phonics we have been learning in our newest phonics sets. Some children have changed set and some have stayed he same. We have been enjoying learning from different adults and learning new sounds as well as revising sounds that we already know.

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

Lots of us are now 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:         


This week in Maths we have continued to practise sharing. We have been doing lots of practical maths with hands on equipment. We have looked at examples of sharing between different amounts of people beyond 10 and up to 12! We discussed how to make it fair by sharing ‘equally’. Some of us discussed what would happen if there are items left over when sharing. We have also begun to use this knowledge to identify and create equal groups of objects.  - Numberjacks fair share


Creative Curriculum / Literacy

In creative curriculum this week we have continued to take part in reading challenges! We have explored our poem “Roar” and have started to read captions and sentences about dinosaurs – sorting the information and selecting which dinosaur we think the information matches up to!   





Homework is set on Fridays and is due back on the following Wednesday. Please ensure that the homework is completed and brought back into class for that date ready for the teachers to mark and return to you on the Friday with your new homework for the following week.  



For our pe learning this week, we have practised and taken part in our sports day! We hope that you had a chance to watch your child compete and enjoy the lovely weather! Next week, we will be back to Mondays PE lessons so please ensure that your children are weather-ready with sun cream and bottles of water to take outside with us too in this hot weather!

Summer weather

Now the weather is becoming warmer, please ensure your child has a hat for the playground and sun cream applied before coming to school. Please pack sun lotion for adults to re-apply later in the day if necessary.


Zoo lab and park trip

Please remember to send in your child’s confirmation slip that they can take part in our upcoming farm visit to school and our park outing. Each child needs parental permission in order to take part. They payment is also now live on your parent pay account.


We thank you for your continued support.

Have a lovely weekend.
