18th May 2018

Dear Reception Parents and Carers,


This Friday we will be celebrating our school’s Feast Day. We will be learning songs and writing prayers to commemorate our special day.

Communication, Language and Literacy

Our caterpillars have now emerged from their chrysalis and are happily flying around the nets in our classrooms. Next week we will be researching information about butterflies and writing sentences about the interesting facts we discover.
We will be releasing our butterflies on Monday so that they can lay new eggs on leaves, continuing the life cycle.
At Home:
Take your child to the local library and see if you can find any information books about mini-beasts. Read the book to your child and encourage them to write sentences about what they have learnt.

Maths Development

Next week we will be continuing to focus on halving and sharing. We will be learning how to share foods between three or more people. For example: if I have six apples to share between three caterpillars, each caterpillar gets two apples.
At Home:
Ask your child to share items at home between 3 toys. Do they have the same amount each? Is it equal?

General Information

  • The letters for our trip to Brighton have been sent home. Please pay for this on Parent Pay.
  • If you would like to volunteer your time to assist with the trip, please return your expression of interest to the school as soon as possible. The teachers will be drawing parent names from a hat on Monday to determine who will come on the trip.
  • A reminder that Monday 4th June is a teacher training day. Classes will resume on Tuesday 5th June.

Many thanks the Reception team
