Reception Times 13 July 2018

We have had a more relaxed week in the warm weather. On Wednesday we watched the whole-school Sports day on the field. Mrs Wright covered for Miss Persaud in the morning.
Miss Mayall, our new Reception teacher came to visit on Monday and Thursday afternoon to get to know the children joining the Reception class in September.

Inside and outside we have been washing the toys and resources ready for the holidays. We have also been drawing and colouring summer pictures, experimenting with colour mixing and doing dot to dot number pictures.

Phonics & Maths:
In Phonics we are working towards children’s individual targets.
In Maths we have been ordering numbers forwards and backwards to 20. What number can your child count up to by rote?

Next week:

Friday 20th July 9.15pm-whole-school
Leaver’s assembly for Year 6.

Friday 20th July-school finishes for the summer holidays at 1.30pm


We have collected in the Reading Record and reading books. Your child no longer needs to bring in their book bags next week. Please empty them ready for Year 1 in September.

Please bring a plastic bag on Thursday so we can empty the drawers. We will be clearing the cloakroom on Friday.

As the good weather continues please carry on putting sun cream on your child and send them in with a named sunhat. We can top them up at lunchtimes if necessary.

Thank you to all those who came to the FOHNS family BBQ. We raised over £1,500 

Annual reports will be sent out Friday.

We will let you know if Mrs Nixon has her baby before the end of term!

This will be the last newsletter for the school year. We have had a great time teaching and getting to know your children. Thank you for all your support.

Special thanks to Mrs White and Mrs Healey for coming in to help on a regular basis.
Thank you also to Mrs Housman for washing the dressing up and baby clothes.

We wish you the very best and have a safe and enjoyable summer holidays

Have a good weekend too.
