Reception Times 28 April 2017

This Week:

We have been doing activities surrounding St George’s Day inside and outside, making puppet shows of the story, playing with the knights and castle and designing dragons. We have also been learning about May Day, doing May Day colouring, creating May pole collages and ordering months of the year.

We have been practicing our May Day songs and dances. The children worked really hard to remember all of the steps. They did brilliantly this morning and we were very proud. Thank you to parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles who came to support our May Day celebration.


Phonics is going well. We are continually assessing children to ensure that they are getting personalised provision.


This week we have been learning to count back from 20 and write teen numbers.

Learning Journeys:

Next week’s Learning Journeys will be Tommy and Zénény.


Please keep your child (and any younger children) with you before and after school.

Mrs Puttick would like to say a very big thank you for her beautiful potted plant and bottle of fizz that she received as a gift for her wedding from you all. She and Mr Puttick had a wonderful day. We are all still getting used to calling Mrs Puttick by her new name!

Please enquire at the office if you are interested in finding out more information Owl Club.

Please make sure your child has a spare clothes bag at school just in case we need to change them for any reason (e.g. being soaked in the water/ getting muddy in the mud kitchen / accidents or vomit).

PE will be on Mondays and will sometimes be outside. Please make sure your child has a tracksuit top and bottoms and a pair of trainers as well as their black shorts and white t-shirt.

Forest School will resume next week. Thank you to those who have signed up to help. There are now 4 groups including the oldest nursery children. Your child’s group may have changed since last term. Up to date information will be kept on the Forest School board.

FOHNS are holding a Family Bingo night tonight in the hall starting at 4:45. Please check the main school newsletter for more details.
