Welcome to Reception!

Summer 1

We hope you have had a lovely break over the Easter holidays. This half term is going to be very different with you working from home but if you try your best, we will always be proud of you! Our topic this half term is 'the circle of life' so the work we set this half term will be linked to this.

You should all be able to access Tapestry so that you can show us the learning your child has been doing at home. Any problems then please email any member of the Reception Team.



Could we also remind you that your child should have a complete set of spare clothes in school in a bag that they can keep on their peg. This is in case of accidents or occasions where your child may get wet or messy! If we have to send your child home in clothes they have borrowed from school, could you please make sure that you send those clothes back in to school as soon as possible.

And finally!

Your child does not need a PE kit at this time. We will notify you later in the year when you will need to send a PE kit to school. This will be in the Summer term and if you have children already in school we will be making sure that both children are in the same team.


Every Day - Book bag, home reading book, EYFS library book

Wednesday - Swimming day - please make sure all jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back

Just a reminder - could you please make sure all of your child's belongings have their name in - water bottles, jumpers, coats, swimming costumes, towels etc - Thanks
