Welcome to Reception!


Autumn Term 2

Welcome back.  We hope you have had a lovely, restful half term.  We have got a very busy half term ahead.  Our first focus book of the half term is called ‘Hello, Friend.’  It is a lovely story about friendship and understanding others.  It encourages the children to think about their own emotions and those of others.

P.E. will continue to be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so children should come into school in their P.E. kits on these days.  If children have trainers at home then they may be more appropriate footwear particularly while the weather is wet as the black pumps do not keep the children’s feet particularly dry.

Reading books will be changed weekly.  Your child will be given a set day to change their books.  If books and reading records are kept in book bags this makes it easier to change the books as there is less chance of them being left at home accidentally.

Homework will be sent home on Fridays and should be sent back in by the following Tuesday.  If this is ever a problem then please let us know.

We have lots planned for this half term as always.  Please continue to check the class page for updates.  Gallery items are regularly put onto the class page to give you an insight into what the children have been doing.  The ‘Word of the Week’ is also put onto the class page weekly as a news item.  This is displayed in the class window too.

If you ever have any queries or anything you wish to speak to us about then please do not hesitate to speak to us at the door.  Alternatively there is the class email which is  The email is checked very regularly.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support.  It is much appreciated.

Mrs Symes and Mrs Williams
