What stars we have in Squirrels…

We would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge well done to every single member of the class for such a fantastic performance at our nativity this morning! They did themselves and all of the grown ups very proud.

Thank you so much for all of your support at home with helping the children to learn their lines.

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Have a lovely weekend

The Reception team 🙂



Stay and play Monday and Tuesday…

Just to remind you that we are having our stay and play sessions on Monday 17th December until 9:30am and Tuesday 18th December from 2:30pm. At both stay and plays you will have chance to make reindeer food with your child for them to take home. If you are unable to attend the stay and play sessions please let us know as we will make sure that your child makes some reindeer food to take home.

We ask that siblings do not attend the stay and play sessions so the children in Reception can get as much out of the session as possible. If this is a problem then please let us know. We would also like to remind you that mobile phones should not be used/checked when in the classroom (or in the school grounds) to safeguard all of our children.

Due to our stay and play sessions there will be no story time on Monday 18th December.

Thank you

The Reception team

Reading books this week…

When your child reads this week they will be given 2 books to read over the Christmas holidays. Next week the children will be carrying out different Christmas reading based activities in class so the books are being given out in preparation for the holidays this week. If you would like more books then please let us know. Just to remind you that the children are also encouraged to read other books at home to help them achieve the target of reading 5 times a week. If you do read other books then please record in their reading records.

If you have any questions about reading with your child over the holidays please let us know.

Thank you

Nativity and stay and play…

Our Early Years nativity is on Friday 14th December at 10:30am. You do not need a ticket for the event. Children’s costumes will be provided by the school. If you have any questions about your child’s part or lines please let us know.

We will also be having 2 stay and play sessions on the last week of term;

Monday 17th December until 9:30am

Tuesday 18th December from 2:30pm

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

Have a lovely evening 🙂


Please ensure your child has their reading log and story book in school on a Monday as this is the day that they are changed.We are unable to change the story books on another day of the week. If you would like your child’s story book changed on top of this then please help yourself to the books in the basket; all we ask is that you return your old book and write down what book your child has chosen in their reading log.

Children will need their reading books in school on the day that they read with an adult as well:

Purple group – Monday

Blue group – Tuesday

Yellow group – Wednesday

Red group – Thursday

We will not change reading books unless a comment has been made in their log from someone at home. If your child is off poorly on the day they are due to read we will try our best to read with them when they come back but can’t always guarantee this.

Just to remind you also that our whole school target is for children to read at least 5 times a week.

If you need any help with reading with your child or you have any questions please let us know.
