Welcome to Reception!
In Reception, we help each other to achieve the unthinkable! We enjoy learning through play and solving new problems. We know that: challenges give us chance to grow, our creativity is a gift and with a Growth Mindset, we will achieve our dreams.
Our teacher is Miss Smith and our teaching assistants are Mrs. Chamberlain and Mrs. Joseph.
We are so excited to share lots of interesting information and exciting photos about what we have been learning. Please scroll down to look at our latest photos and information.
Summer Term 2021
Our Gospel Values this half-term are: Faith-Filled and Hopeful
Our topic this term is called: 'Heroes!'
Book Change: Reception pupils will bring home two books and these will be changed on a weekly basis. One book will be a Reading Scheme text which matches the phonemes (sounds) that the children have been taught in Phonics so that they have an opportunity to apply their new knowledge. The other book will be chosen by the child, from the School Library. Reading books will be changed every Friday.
PE: Your child will have PE every Wednesday morning. They should come into school wearing their PE kit and they will wear their kit all day.
Forest School: Your child will have a Forest School session every Friday afternoon with Mrs. Hinton. They will wear their wellies, which will be kept in school throughout the academic year, along with waterproof overalls. There are overalls available in school, or, your child can bring their own waterproof coat and trousers to wear each week, if you wish. During the colder months, please make sure your child has a hat, scarf and gloves (that you don't mind getting muddy) to wear in Forest School.
Swimming: Your child will have their swimming lesson every Monday afternoon. Please make sure that they bring a swimming costume or trunks, along with a swimming hat and a towel to school. Long hair should be tied up and your child should not wear earrings to school on this day.
COOL Time (Carrying On Our Learning): Reception’s COOL Time activities will be sent home every Friday and need to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. More information and guidance about these activities will be inside your child's COOL Time Book.
