Welcome to Term 5 in Reception


We hope you all had a lovely break and we are very excited to have all the Reception children back in for our fifth term.


We have lots of exciting new subject areas and themes in term 5. This terms main theme is "I wonder why?". In this term we focus on the children's interests and their questions they have. This can range from why is the sky blue? To who killed the Dinosaurs? And everything in between.


The Caterpillars and Bumblebees will be off to forest school for 4 weeks and Ladybirds and Butterflies have a trip to the park to look forward to.


Please read through the newsletter for full details including important dates, information about your child's learning and some requests from us too.




Curriculum Information Session slides

The slides above are from the recent session for Reception Parents/Carers which gave an overview of the curriculum. If you weren't able to attend the session and have any questions about the slides, please do get in touch with your child's teacher or with Cath Sands and we'll be very happy to discuss them further.
