Reception Times 7 July 2017

This Week:

We have had a lovely week continuing with our Space theme. The children have been using the Space-Bots to visit the Planets, painting pictures of the Planets and making stars for our Space display.  We have also been making dinosaur collages and finding out about different dinosaurs.

Outside the children have been learning about butterflies. We have been making hand print butterflies, looking at symmetry and creating a diagram of the life cycle of a butterfly.

Mrs Collins delivered a wonderful collective worship about our Owl Value of the Month: Reflection.


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


This week we have been learning to add up to a given number to ten including adding more than two numbers. We have also been finishing off our work on measures looking at everyday language of capacity; full, half-full and empty.


Please keep your child (and any younger children) with you before and after school. Could you also ensure you close school gates behind you if you are the last person to leave.

Punctuality – Please arrive at school on time.

Spare Clothes and PE kits need to be in school and named please. We will send PE kits home on Tuesday.
