Reception

Key Information

Over the half term we will be talking a lot about Festivals and Celebrations with lots of significant calendar events, such as Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas. Our other topics will be derived on a weekly basis from our observations of the children's interests, information from the wishing well and Tapestry uploads. Please keep us informed if there is a topic or area that your child is particularly interested in through use of our Wishing Well.

PE has started! The children will be having PE lessons on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Please ensure that all earrings are removed on this day and that they have a full named PE kit in school. It would also be beneficial for the children to practise changing at home with you.

Forest School will continue to take place on a 2 week cycle every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure the children have their wellington boots at school.

Special snack occurs each week, the children will be doing lots of baking and thinking about the changes that happen when we cook food. Please remember to use Parent Pay to make your contribution towards this.
