A few of Reception’s routines:

Reading books need to be in school EACH day and will be changed each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please sign the book when you have read with your child and state if their book needs changing.

Home/school books are given out on a Wednesday and are collected in on a Monday. Please try and write a small comment if possible or initial that you have seen it.

PE kits need to be left in school each day and our PE days is on a Friday. Please could you make sure all PE items are labelled. We will send their kits home for washing at the end of this half term.

Reception’s Topic Focus:

This half term we will be learning about:


We will be talking about ourselves and our family’s. We will paint ourselves, draw our families and make our houses. We will be looking at how we have changed from babies to now and look at toys we used to play with. We will be reading the story books ‘Titch’, ‘Once there were giants’, ‘Peepo’ and the non fiction books ‘My body’ and ‘My History’


We welcome ANY helpers in school. You can hear readers, do activities or just admin jobs. If there are any Mums, Dads, Grandparents etc. that want to fill a few hours please let us know.


Thank you,

Mrs Heskett and  the Reception Staff
