12th June 2019

Dear Reception Parents and Carers,


Next week we will continue the topic ‘Our World’. The children have been discussing the world in which we live and thinking about what makes our world so beautiful. This week they have learnt about how God is the creator of our world. 

Communication, Language and Literacy

Next week the children will be writing about their favourite memories from Reception. They will also be learning the lyrics to special songs that we will be singing at the Reception Graduation on Tuesday. 

At home:

Please revisit all the sounds we have learnt this year with a particular focus on the digraphs:

ai, ee, or, oo, oi, oa, sh, th, ch, ng, igh, ur, ear, air, ure, er, ow, air

Maths Development

Next week we will continue to work on halving with the children. The children are just beginning to understand that half is the opposite to double so we will continue to work on this. 

We will also be revisiting all we have learnt this year with simple games. We will be asking the children to solve simple problems and to show how they worked it out using simple mathematical equipment. 

e.g. – a lady bird has 3 spots on each wing. Altogether he has double that. How many spots will he have altogether?

General Information

  • The 17thJuly is the Reception Graduation Day.
  • St Andrew - 9:30am and St George - 2:30pm.

  • If you have any old CD’s or DVDs, even if they are scratched, or any plastic bottle tops we would love to have them to make sculptures for the outdoor area.
  • Also, if you have any Wellington boots that your children have grown out of this year and you no longer need, we would appreciate the donations. 
  • We would just like to say a huge THANK YOU for all the support you have given the school this year. It really is a joint partnership between home and school. The children have all come such a long way and we are all very proud of them.

    Many thanks the Reception team
