Change over Tuesday

Reception reading books will be changed every Tuesday. Please ensure you child has their book bag, reading books and reading record. Please bring these items every day as your child will regularly read with an adult in school.



RD’s PE day is Thursday.

Please ensure your child has full kit in school throughout the half term. These will be sent home each holiday for washing. Hair should be tied up and earrings must be removed on these days. If they are wearing earrings they will not be allowed to join in with PE lessons.


Reading Morning

Every Wednesday parents/carers are invited into classrooms from 8:45-9:00 am to share a book with their child. This will start from Wednesday 16th September. We hope you can make it!


Focus Friday’s

The last Friday of each half term is Focus Friday! 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:-10:00 am in the school hall. The session will have a different curriculum focus each time. More information will be given nearer the time.

This week we have been reading 'The Enormous Turnip'. We have been looking at the language used in the book and have discussed what this means. We have been using mathematical language linked to size such as large, huge, and gigantic and humongous. We have added actions to the story and we are able to talk about the characters and story setting. As a class we have looked at how teamwork enables the Old Man to pull up the turnip – something he just could not manage alone.


Next week, as part of our 'The Enormous Turnip' topic, we will be planting radishes. I wonder how big these will grow.
