A warm welcome back to the start of a new half term! We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break and enjoyed New Year celebrations. We cannot wait to welcome the children back and learn lots of new things about Pirates and look at the story Pirates Love Underpants.

PE Information

Please ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available as we will be getting the children changed for PE this half term.

Please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home (at least 4 or more times). Your child has now received a reading book and a reading diary, please ensure that you sign the reading diary so we can see how many times your child has read, once the child has read the book we shall change it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Extended Learning Grid (share work on the year group Tapestry)
  • Year group Bucket List (share activities on Tapestry)


Our Spring 1 term is all about “Pirates”. We will be looking at non fiction texts and the story “Pirates Love Underpants”. We will also be looking at how the past and present compare and contrast and the similarities and differences of a treasure island and our local community. In science we will be investigating materials and finding out which is the best material to build a pirate ship with.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the Reception team.
