 Reception B

Welcome to Reception!

This is the last half term before our summer holidays.

Here are some diary dates for you:

The second half of the summer term starts on Tuesday 7th June

New to Reception meeting for parents of children in Reception next September is Thursday 30th June at 9.00am

Eid party is on Friday 8th July or Monday 11th July

The Mela is on Thursday 14th July

School closes for the Summer holidays on Tuesday 19th July at 2.00pm. 

We will be having a Stay and Play session next half term and will sort out a date soon.


This half-term in light of the Olympic games in Rio this August we will be looking at different countries that will be taking part and looking at different cultures and traditions that might be different to our own and staging our own mini-Olympic games! We will also be dancing in the Mela so will be practising dancing and making music linked to a country.

PE will still take place on a Monday afternoon. We have enjoyed working with the gymnastics coach this half term and look forward to working with a new coach next term. 
Reading books will be changed on a Thursday. The children will receive two books on a Thursday and these should be shared together over the week. On Friday Learning Logs will be sent home with a challenge in for the children to complete for the following Friday. Please allow the children to do the challenge as much as possible supported by any family members that wish to help.

Our First Week!!

We went on an Autumn walk in our local park. We collected patterns with interesting colours and leaves and painted them back in our classroom.
We had a visit from Travelling Tuba today! We loved it. We played triangles, shakers, tambourines, scrapers and maracas.
