Important information 

Home School books πŸ“š 

Please bring your yellow home/school contact book to school every day. This book is to inform the class teacher of any change to collection/drop off routines. It is also used to pass messages or information to your teacher and also to enable the teacher to communicate messages back to parents.


Reading books πŸ“– 

Your child will be given a reading book and a green Reading Record. Please return these to school each day. The reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday. We encourage as much home reading as possible. We recommend the children read a minimum of 3 times a week at home to continue to develop their skills. Please make a note of your child’s reading in their Reading Record.


PE will be on Tuesdays πŸƒ‍♂️ πŸƒ‍♀️ 

Due to weather changes and/or restrictions in available space in school please send your child with their PE kit every Monday to be kept at school all week. We will send PE kits home on a Friday for washing.

Please note Reception children will begin getting changed for PE after half term.

Our new Reception classes πŸ˜€

Harvest festival performance 

The children have worked really hard over the last couple of weeks learning the words and actions to perform their harvest song ‘The farmer plants the seeds’ for you to see. Thank you for all kind donations over the last week.

Rainbow Day 🌈 
We had lots of fun on Rainbow Day! We sang the rainbow song and talked about the different colours. We voted for our favourite colour and learnt the Awesome Rainbow dance. The Rainbow Fish sent us a colour mixing challenge to make green, purple and orange. We used our fingers to mix the paint and make the colours! We made lots of colourful rainbow craft. 
Settling into Reception
We have been enjoying making new friends and exploring our new classroom environments. We have been learning about being a good friend by reading the book The Rainbow Fish. We have been learning our sounds and practising our numbers. We have enjoyed our fish art and craft!
