Term 6


This term we will be continuing our theme of 'I wonder why...' The children have asked some brilliant questions and have explored how best to find answers to them - we are sure you all heard a lot about the snails... We will continue to support the children in their exploration of their interests and fascinations. 


We are starting the term with exploring the book, 'Where the Wild Things Are,' exploring the plot, characters, illustrations and language. We are sure there will be a 'wild rumpus' along the ways as well. We will be looking at number in maths - starting with making number bonds to different numbers (e.g. 7 can be made with 5 and 2 or 3 and 4 etc).


We will also be talking about growing and change to prepare your child for the move to year one. They will be having lots of transition time in the year one classrooms and playground as the term progresses.


We will continue to make full use of the outside area for learning, so please do make sure that your child has a sun hat and a water bottle and that sun cream has been applied to them on sunnier days.


You should have received an email about Reception Sports day on Monday 11th June from 1.30-2.30 at Greville Smyth Park. We are very excited about this and about our trip to Court Farm later in the term!

Reception Garden Makeover Morning...


Thank you so much to all the families who gave their time and resources to improve the Reception Garden area. It looks amazing and this is down to everyone who came on the day and worked extremely hard, donated resources or baked delicious cakes! All your painting, gardening, sweeping, cleaning and mud kitchen making has given the children a space that they will be so excited to play and learn in.


It was very special that the children could see us coming together to work as a community to improve their environment and their hard work and ideas were extremely appreciated (the tyres they designed are works of art). Thank you for spending a lovely, sunny morning with us.
