Supporting your child at home


Please read with your child at least three times a week.  We will change the reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday providing the reading record has been signed off by an adult. The reading record should be returned in your child’s book bag every day, regardless of whether your child has read or not so we can read with the children in school as well. Please see the reading letter for more information.



We will continue to learn the phase 2 sounds in phonics this half term. We will be applying these in our reading and writing. 



Children must have their PE kits in school every day. Please ensure that every item of PE kit and school uniform is clearly labelled with your child's name. RB will have PE with Mrs Barclay on a Wednesday and RV will have PE with Mrs Barclay on a Thursday.

Continous Provision/ Free-flow

In Reception, our learning revolves around play and children will be given the opportunity to explore and investigate learning with independence.  As part of our continuous provision, during the day the children have the opportunity to independently choose which areas they would like to learn in: either classrooms or our outdoor learning environment. Continuous provision enables the children to explore recent learning, practice new skills, and follow their own interests in a variety of different hands-on and practical ways.Throughout the day there are also some adult led carpet



The children use lots of different materials for arts and crafts. We would welcome donations of items such as pasta, lentils, sequins, buttons and junk modelling (cleaned recycling items e.g. cardboard boxes, plastic bottles etc.) We will have a board in the EYFS area where we will post items we would like to have donated. Please keep an eye out, and let your child's class teacher know if you can help. 

The children are enjoying the mud kitchen outside. If you have any old kitchen equipment, such as pots, pan or cooking utensils you would like to donate they would be gratefully received!

Please find the timetables for both classes below.


As your child develops and learns they will start to use their knowledge and skills in a variety of contexts.  We would like you to contribute to your child’s Profile and working document, by telling us when your child does something that makes you say “Wow!”  This can be anything from using new vocabulary, sharing some new learning or information, holding a pencil correctly, writing, learning how to skip; anything which shows an achievement.

Please find some ‘wow cards’ attached.  These can be completed at any time during the school year to share your child’s achievements.  When you have completed a card, leave it in your child’s book bag for us to file in their folders.


Homework will be set after half term.  When homework has been set, please choose one task to do every week and return your completed activity, with your homework book, on Thursday.  Your book will be marked and returned on Monday.
