A big warm welcome from all the Reception team! We hope you have all had a fantastic Summer break and have made lots of fun memories. We have been very busy over the Summer holidays to make sure the classrooms are ready for you all and have planned some very exciting activities.

PE Information

PE will be every Thursday morning for both Apples and Pears. Children will not need to bring their PE kits to school until Autumn term 2. We will put out notes beforehand to remind you when it needs to be in school.

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) 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. (The children will be given a book and diary within the first couple of weeks at school)
  • Extended Learning Grid (share work on the year group padlet/Tapestry)
  • Year Group Bucket List (share activities on year group padlet/Tapestry)


This half term we will be focusing on our “Hi, My Name is…” topic. Over the coming weeks we will be learning about ourselves, our families, our friends and our new school. We will also be looking at the changes in season transitioning from Summer and Autumn and comparing the differences.

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