Welcome to Reception

Welcome back after the Easter break, we hope that you all had an enjoyable holiday!

We are continually in need of ‘spare uniform’. If you have any that your child no longer needs, we would be very grateful of any donations! Thank you to those parents who have returned any borrowed items or already donated uniform items already this year.



During the summer term in Reception, our learning will be centred around the themes ‘What on Earth’ where we will be exploring different concepts such as big and small things, what unique means to us as well as pollution and recycling. We will then move on to our new topic  ‘Under the Sea’ where we will learn about what we may find in the ocean from dolphins and sharks to fish and crustaceans. We will also learn about exciting events occurring during the term such as the Summer Olympic games. Throughout our learning, we will begin our learning with a story, which will allow our theme to flow between our 7 Areas of Learning. Our learning continues to take place through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated sessions indoors and outdoors.

Floppy Phonics



Phonics will continue to be an important part of our children’s learning where they will have the opportunity to practise and apply their phonic knowledge. As we spend two weeks learning 3 new phonemes, children will have 1 reading book linked to the sounds they are learning in class. This book is to be read over and over again to help build your child’s fluency in reading along with their comprehension. Therefore, your child may remain on the same reading book for 2 weeks.


Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times and each item of clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. Can we please remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.


Reception PE sessions are:
Class 1 – Wednesday             Class 2 – Friday         Class 3 – Wednesday

Wild Tribe


Please can we remind you that children should arrive at school in their uniform with their outdoor learning clothes in a bag. Please ensure the children have appropriate clothing as we will be outdoors for most of the afternoon (wellies, waterproof trousers/jackets, gloves, hats, scarves). Our ‘Wild Tribe’ sessions allow the children the time and space to develop skills, interests and understanding through practical hands-on experiences. These experiences will build self-esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world.


 Wild Tribe sessions are:

Class 1 – Monday              Class 2 – Thursday                     Class 3 – Friday

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
