Reception 2018 - 2019


Welcome to our class page!

Please see the link to the curriculum overview for the upcoming summer term below. The date for the class trip to the ice-cream farm is Wednesday 5th June.


Week beginning 13th May

What fabulous weather we have had this week! It’s always a great week when our learning can take place both inside and outside. The children have loved meeting George’s Gecko and Chianne’s pet dog this week and have learnt all about how to take care of these pets. If anyone else would like to arrange a pet visit please let Mrs Millichap or Mrs Henshall know.


The children are being encouraged each day to complete independent writing and longer tasks at the table in preparation for year one. It is always so rewarding to see all their reading and writing skills come together at this point in the term when they go off on their own to write. We are so proud of them. We have also taken our writing outside this week and children have enjoyed writing sentences on the big chalkboard and on clipboards during our summer walk. We took the time to be ‘mindful’ and observe the beauty in our immediate play area – the children observed so much! 


In maths we have been focussing on strategies for taking away. To prepare the children for year one, we have shown them the crossing out method (see homework sheet). Please could you practise the additional take aways in the homework book to consolidate what the children have been taught this week.


With the warm weather now making an appearance please could you apply sun cream to your child before they come to school. The all day sun creams are best so children don’t have to reapply it at school, they tend to spend most of their playtime putting it on otherwise! Please ensure your child has a named hat on sunny days and we will ensure they have plenty of water to drink throughout the day. Please encourage your child to put their hats in their team basket along with their bookbag as they are not allowed to wear hats/caps on the carpet.

Next week Mrs Millichap will be teaching Monday and Friday and Mrs Henshall will be teaching Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please look out for the additional letter regarding the trip – we still have room for more parent helpers should you wish to join us.

Our stars of the week from last week were Isla and Jack for their amazing independent writing.
