Welcome to Reception

Welcome back to school! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break. We are looking forward to hearing all about your holidays. All the children had worked so hard last term and we are excited for the term ahead.

This half term, we will be exploring ‘Our Beautiful Planet’ and how we can care for it. We will be discussing how it is important that we recycle, how we can care for living things and more. We will also be developing our understanding of the season, Winter and explore different animals that live in the cold weather.

We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year! Children will develop their Understanding of the World knowledge, fine motor skills and explore a different range of Chinese foods.

In Maths, we will continue to develop our understanding of numbers within 10 by lots of fun, practical activities to compose numbers as well as exploring capacity and weight. This term, we will be developing our mathematical language such as heavy, light and much more!

In Literacy, we will be continuing to work hard each day in our daily phonics session and applying our phonic knowledge to our reading and writing in class. Please use our Dojo app to consolidate your child’s learning, with updated sounds which the children are working on. Reading at home is vital and the best support you can give your child at this vital time of learning. Sharing stories as well as having a story time at bedtime will support your child into becoming a confident reader and to have a love for books.

We will also be developing our independence of getting changed and dressed into our P.E kits, if you have P.E pumps at home, please bring it in and children can leave it in their locker. At home, you could encourage your child to get dressed for school more independently too!


Don’t forget-

Read every night- books will be changed each Friday. Please bring in your book bags every Thursday.

Remember to check Dojo and Seesaw regularly.

P.E is every Thursday.


Coats and Water bottles

We are out all weathers so please always bring a coat each day and water bottle.
