Welcome to Reception!


Spring Term 2020



This half term we will be learning all about the Polar Regions. We will be reading the story; 'Lost and Found,' by Oliver Jeffers.

The children will be learning about the Arctic and Antarctic. We will be finding facts about different polar animals and their habitats. 

We will also be taking part in science experiments with ice and looking at materials that will help keep us warm in winter. 


Parents: This half term we will be having another Math's themed Stay and Play session. (please see letters)


Changes: P.E has now moved to a Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure all children's kits are in school. 


Reminders: All children need to have their reading books and purple home/school book in school everyday. Reading at home throughout the week will help your child, so please try and make time to do this. Also, don't forget we have our online 'Bug club' for children to access. 

Homework is given out on a Friday and due back on the following Wednesday.

Important Information
We have P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full indoor and outdoor P.E. kit and that all items are labelled.
We will read with your child as often as possible. Please ensure your child has their book bag with them each and every day.

Please put names on all belongings to prevent them from getting muddled up and getting lost.


In Reception, we play outside daily and in all weather, so we ask that you provide your child with the appropriate outdoor clothing and suitable footwear.


Please feel free to come and speak with any of us in Reception about anything you need. We look forward to working with you and your child this term.
