A big warm welcome back from all the Reception team! We hope you have all had a restful Autumn break and have enjoyed some time together. We look forward to a very busy term.

PE Information

Children will not need to bring their PE Kit this term.

As the weather turns colder and children will need to bring hats, gloves, scarfs etc please ensure that these are name as they can be easily misplaced. Also as the weather gets wetter you may want your child to come to school in Wellington boots and change into their school shoes when they arrive, please ensure that they are school shoes and not boots, please refer to the uniform policy.

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)


This half term we will be focussing on our “Celebrate the World” topic. Over the coming weeks we will be learning about celebrations that are important to people in our community such as Bonfire Night, Remembrance, The World Cup, Birthdays and the Christmas Story and how, why and where they are celebrated.

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