General Information


Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and Thursday but please feel free to bring book bags in on other days if you would like to change your child's book more frequently.

 The homework challenge will be sent at the beginning of each half term and can be brought back when completed. The Star challenge will be judged by the school councillors at the end of the half term. There will be a prize for the winner in each class.

  Other homework will be sent linked to work we are doing in Phonics and Maths.


 Please ensure that all of your child's clothing has their names written inside to avoid any misplaced items.

 We play outside in all weather conditions, so please ensure that your child is sent to school in sensible shoes and a coat. You can also bring wellies into school for your child to change into.  







Homework Challenge

Last half term we have had an amazing response to our homework star challenge which was to design and create a vehicle. We have had so many entries and all of them are deserving of the top prize but who will the school councillors chose?

Star Challenge Last Term

Stay & Play Sessions

Wow! What a fantastic turnout for RH and RM as parents were invited to our Red Nose Day Party. Reception created some yummy cupcakes in the morning and had all sold out by the afternoon. We played pass the parcel and tried to pin the red nose on Mr Tumble. We hope parents enjoyed our Stay and Play and welcome them to our other events. Thank you for those who attended and well done RH and RM for selling all of our biscuits and cupcakes.

Our First Class Assembly

We enjoyed our first class assembly which was all about dinosaurs.

We did our dinosaur dance and then invited parents to experiment with the volcanoes we had made for our home work star challenge.


Thank you to everyone who has come along so far this year and all the positive comments we have received. The children loved showing their parents around and sharing the things they have been learning about.



Our next Stay & Play  session is at 2:00pm on...


Wednesday 10th April








Spring Topic

This half term our topic is ...


Mighty Beasts





We are going to be doing work around dinosaurs, their characteristics, past creatures and their extinction.

It would be lovely if we could find out what children have been learning through the half term holidays via the Tapestry App or the child interests sheets that will be sent home. This will help us to plan work around what the children know about dinosaurs and how we can expand this to create an enriching environment in our classroom.

This term Reception are going to be taking part in P.E sessions once a week, they will not need to bring in a P.E kit.
