Happy New Year to you all.

Welcome back,

We have been busy this week getting ready for our new topic of superheroes.Thankyou to everyone who has completed pages on the school Jam app. This will help your children to build on the skills they have learnt in school.


Next Week we will be working on number bonds to 10. in Floppy's Phonics we will be learning our final level one sound which will be 'ss'. We will be assessing the children then moving on to level two sounds. Thankyou for your continued support reading with your child at home, this will have a huge impact on your child's progress. 


Have a lovely weekend, and don't forget to practice word building with the letter tiles sent home.

What another wonderful week it has been in Reception. We are so proud of the children for their concert performances. Thankyou all for your support and the lovely costumes you have provided. 


Monday is our party day and the children can come to school in their party outfits for the day. We have lots of lovely christmas activities and games planned and we will post some photographs on twitter for you to see.


We are still working hard with our Floppy's Phonics and next week we will be learning l and ll and continuing to word build. We will also be writing about the Christmas story and recording some nativity role play on see saw. 


Enjoy your weekend and we are looking forward to seeing all of the children's party outfits on Monday. 


Thankyou for your continued support,

Dear All,

It's been a busy week in Reception. Christmas has arrived and the glitter and sparkles are out. Reverend Andrea came in on Thursday and lit our first Advent Candle. Mary, Joseph and the Donkey (The Travelling Nativity) have had fun joining our provision areas and resting in our Contemplation areas.


We have been rehearsing for our Christmas concert and the children are excited to show you their songs. Thank you for the beautiful costumes that have arrive this week. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.


WE are still working hard on out Floppy's Phonics sounds and this week's sound tiles b and h are in book bags today. We have also been practicing writing numbers to 10 and matching numicon shapes to numbers.


Next Friday is Christmas jumper day so we look forward to seeing the different outfits. 

Enjoy your weekend,




The Reception Team.

Dear All, 

We are enjoying learning the songs for our Christmas concert. The following letter has been sent home in book bags today.


Dear Parents and Carers,


This year we will be performing Lights Camel Action for our Christmas concert. Your child will be required

to bring in a costume for the concert in a sturdy named carrier bag.

In Mrs Jones’ class children will be a nativity character of your choice but not Mary and Joseph please. (Please note that you do not have to go out and buy a special outfit, e.g. white t-shirt and black leggings for a sheep, dressing gown for a shepherd, white dress and wings for an angel. )

Mr Wynne’s class will be disco stars and will require a sparkly outfit.


Please could the costumes be in school by Friday 6th December at the latest so that staff can

carry out dress rehearsals. Any problems please speak to the class teacher.

Our concerts will take place at 9.30am on:-

Tuesday 10th December for Reception parents.

Wednesday 11th December for Year one parents.

Thursday 12th December for Year two parents.

Tickets will be sold nearer the time and allocated two per family.

Many thanks for your support,


Reception Team

Another busy week in Reception.

Thankyou all for your contributions to the Children in Need fund raising and for all the wonderful Pudsey bear outfits. We had great fun joining in with a morning workout with Joe Wix!


The Book Fair also arrived today and we visited with the children to look at some of the exciting books that are available. If you would like your child to buy a book, please send the money in a named envelope on Monday and we will make sure that they get the book they want.


We have added another two letters to our Floppy's Phonics tiles and the children have been impressing us with the words that they can make with the tiles already. Thankyou for your support with this at home. 


Our mathematics next week will be finding one more and one less and making up stories about disappearing objects so that we can find out how many are left! 


We will also be using our Mr Benn clothes shops in each classroom to act out stories and use the coins 1p, 2p 5p and 10p to pay for items.


We are hoping to set up a music area outdoors in the next couple of weeks and would be grateful for any old saucepans, wooden spoons, or pieces of drainpipe that we could make use of.


Enjoy your weekend, hopefully the weather will improve.

Welcome back all and we hope you had a fun half term. 


We have had a very busy week in Reception this week. We have been making firework pictures and getting our role play areas ready for a dressing up shop. In mathematics we learnt about more and fewer and how to line up and match objects to show how many more there are.

We have sent out new oxford reading tree books and enjoyed sharing them individually with the children.

Please remember that the children may be very tired when they get home so always read the book  to them first before encouraging them to have a go themselves. 


Thankyou to everyone who has sent in their photograph of their family or a certificate. We have shared them at circle time this week and recorded things that we are proud of in our books. We loved hearing about their families and skills outside school.


We have sent home the next letter tiles today so we hope you enjoy making words with them and practicing the sounds at home.


Next week we will be learning c and k and our Maths work will involve finding one more or one less of a group of objects. 


Words that we have been learning this week are more, fewer, forwards, backwards, how many, first, then, now, one less, one more, order. In literacy we are talking about stories in terms of now, next, after that and finally.

We hope you have a fun weekend and look forward to starting out new letter sounds on Monday.

Magical Me (25th October 2019)


Next half term we are continuing with our theme of  'Magical Me'. 


Our theme is ‘I belong to’ and we will be talking about belonging to our family, to our class and to our school; as well as to the wider community through our Village Trail. 


Please could your child bring in a certificate or photograph of something outside of school that they belong to.


This could be a swimming club, dance class, football, drama etc. Or indeed something from within the family such as a holiday photo showing different members of the family; or perhaps learning a new skill with your brothers or sisters or grandparents.


We will then have a Circle Time, where the children will talk to their group about their photograph or certificate. 


In the meantime, have a very well-deserved half term break and thank you to all the children for being so amazing this half term!


Many thanks for your support with this,
