The latest Reception Class Newsletter

Our half term class newsletter: Newsletter spring2

Please look out for our weekly Newsletter to update you on our plans for the following week!

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome! I hope you and your children have had a lovely half term! I can’t wait to hear all about it!

On this page I will add links and ideas of some phonics and maths games you can do with your chid as we progress through the year.

If you ever have any worries please come and see me in the mornings or we can arrange a more private meeting after school.

Here is a link to a document from the Department of Education outlining the gradual process of development from 0 – 5 years. If you want to have a look and you can see what your child may do at home that links to any specific age boundaries I can then add those details you have noticed at home onto their learning journey in school.

Thank you,

Our topic this half term is Under the sea!

This half term we will be diving in to the deep blue sea and exploring what lives in the corals and caves. We will be using our art skills to create collages, create stories together and of course act like pirates and send messages in bottles! Please see our above newsletter for more details!

During the first week back we will be making pancakes and having races to celebrate pancake day! We will also be having a Chinese new year day to celebrate the new year! Keep a look out for pictures on your tapestry account!

Science experiments!

In Reception, we love investigating and exploring everything about the world we live in. Below are some experiments the children would love to have a go at home! Please pick one or two and take some photos for us to see!
