Important Dates

In Reception we are very enthusiastic about establishing secure home school links. We love sharing what we do in school with the children and invite parents in on regular occassions to work alongside their children to help them grow and develop.

Recently we have held a Reading Cafe. Children and parents enjoyed working together in a cosy environment reading exciting stories with their children, using story sacks to act out their favourite stories and play lots of phonics games. 

Names in PE kits

PE for Reception will be on a Wednesday. Can we please ask all PE kits are labelled and ear rings removed. At home whenever you have time can you please practise with your child getting ready independently and encourage this.



Reading with your child is very important. Encouraging your child to share books and making this a positive experience will help on their journey to becoming competent readers. In the Early Years your child will be given a book when he or she is ready. Children will start by taking picture books home to develop their imagination and knowledge of how a story is structured. When their class teacher or you feel they are ready to start the schools reading scheme (Oxford Reading Tree) we will start to send one home on a Wednesday. A record will also be sent and an informative note would be appreciated on how the child has read. A good example of a useful and specific comment would be:

‘Enjoyed story, b/d reversal, struggled with sound 'sh'.'

We will use this information to inform our guided reading and phonics planning with the children.


Homework will be added to your child's communication book each week. This may be a maths, writng or topic piece of homework. Please ensure books are returned on a Monday for our show and tell sessions and so that we can add in the next piece of homework.

Children will be learning all about the seasons and changes that happen during each season (particularly spring and summer). 

Teaching and Learning in Reception

Our aim throughout the Reception year is to support and to teach children to achieve the Early Learning Goals, in preparation for Year 1. There are 17 Early Learning Goals which are described in the Early Years Outcomes below:

A parent’s guide to the EYFS curriculum can be found in the Parents Guide below:

In our Early Years we believe that play is the foundation of development and learning for young children. Your child will take part in many indoor and outdoor play experiences that will help them to learn and have fun as they work towards the Early Learning Goals.

There will be regular opportunities for parents to meet with the EYFS staff to discuss their child’s development and to look through their learning journals, which documents their progress.

Oral Health

Each day all the children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 clean their teeth. The children all understand the important of keeping their teeth clean and love brushing their teeth after lunch. 

"They might go black or yellow."

"We brush our teeth two time. One a morning and before bed."

"We need to keep our teeth nice and clean."

Snack time

In Reception children are encouraged to eat healthily. We have fruit everyday and the children have a great understanding of the benifits of a healthy lifestyle. 

"We eat healthy food to make us big and strong."

"To give us energy."

"So we have strong muscles."
