Welcome to everyone. We hope your child has settled into reception well. We have had lots of fun exploring all the areas of reception. Everyone has now had their 'my first days at school' and these are on tapestry to view. Please keep checking this as we update this regular with what they are doing. These are some of the children exploring the classrooms.




We will keep you updated with other things to know.

Summer 2/ weeks 1-3

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

We have had a busy few weeks in Recepttion.

In maths we have been recapping shape, place value and counting up in 2's, 5's and 10's. As a continuing topic we are now looking at the reasoning.

Our topic this half term is looking at differences. We have talked about our houses and village, towns and cities.  We had a walk around the village looking at what we have in our village and then we are going to compare it to the city. 

The children enjoyed looking at all the different houses.

We have then come back and wrote about our village and also about our houses.



The different houses we have in the village.



These next few weeks we will be working a lot with the children on transition to year 1. Please can you also be having little discussions about their feelings and anxieties over this move.

Summer 5

This week in reception we have been looking at place value. We have talked about what the numbers represent in certain numbers. Ask your child what the 2 in 27 represents or other random numbers.

In our literacy we have wrote letters to the three bears inviting them to a party to say sorry. We planned a party and the things we were going to do.

We hope the children enjoyed dressing up and the fun we had.

A few reminders please

Can I return the suncream letter signed and a labelled bottle.

P.E can we please help.children to be independent at dressing and undressing. Also please can we have all uniform and kit named. We are spending lots of time looking for unnamed uniform

summer 4

After another long weekend we have had to try and squash our week into four days.  We have been continuing looking at Goldilocks and the three bears as our story/topic. We have been writing letters to the three bears saying sorry for the things that Goldilocks has done and we also have been writing descriptions of Goldilocks.

In our maths lesson this week we have been looking at time and the different ways we measure time. We have looked at ordering our day and what comes first, next, after and last. We have also been looking at the days of the week as well as standard measures of seconds, minutes, hours. We have been seeing what things we can do in one minute.

We also have enjoyed another fantastic dance lesson from coach Jade from Total Dance, who has come in and been showing us different moves.

Please remember if your child is on packed lunch, to return the form to say whether you would like your child to have a school dinner.

We hope you have begun to think about what your child may wear for our pary

Summer 3

This week we have been looking at the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears. We have ordered the story and re wrote it, labelled the charachters. In Miss Turner's class we have made a puppet theatre were the children can make up or retell the stories.

In maths we are still working on adding and subtracting using a number line. Some children have been sharing numbers.

Things coming up

We are having a bit of a party for the 3 bears from Goldilocks. On the 17th of May we would like the children to come dressed up as a fairy tale character. It could be a pig from the 3 little pigs, it could be a goat from the 3 Billy goats gruff. Get your thinking caps on, we can't wait to see what your child may be. Can we ask that we don't have any superhero costumes please.

Many thanks
