Reception

Welcome to Term 3!

Welcome back after the holiday – we hope you enjoyed the festive period with your children. We are excited to start this new term and really happy to see you and your children returning looking so happy!

We are starting PE on Monday and will be doing PE twice a week on Monday and Thursday mornings. Please leave PE kits in a  labelled bag on your child’s peg until the end of term. 

Online diary

Please logon to your child’s diary if you have already done so.  It is lovely for the children to know that you are seeing the learning they are doing in class. Please put any great activities that you do at home on there too that you would like to share with us! 

Core Learning

Term 3 – It is up to you!

We teach core thinking skills as part of our everyday curriculum. This term we will be focusing on the following three ‘I cans.’

I can show what I think is good about a piece of work I have just done.

I can identify when I have succeeded in doing something for the first time.

I can copy physical movements in dance/drama/PE.

Dates for the Diary

Last day of term—Fri 15th Feb

Chartwells Visit

We had a visit from Chartwells who provide the food for the school today. We read the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and then made caterpillar fruit kebabs. We tried new food like watercress which some of us liked and some of us didn’t – it was very spicy! What do you think of our caterpillars?

Diversity Month

We’ve been celebrating Diversity Month this month, reading books from around the world and thinking about different jobs, communities and languages. We all dressed up to celebrate diversity across cultures and jobs! We had great fun playing and acting out different jobs in role play and construction. It was a great day of play!

We have been having fun getting to know each other, learning about the rules and routines and exploring the new classroom – inside and outside!

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
