6.07.18 Dear Parents/Carers,   
Welcome to the last week of homework for Reception class. Thank you so much for all of your work and support with your child throughout this year. Education is a partnership between the parents, pupils and the teacher. Without one of these partners, we are not able to effectively move forward in our learning. You make a big difference in your child’s learning!    

Thank you to all who posted and brought in their Space challenge Homework.

This week I am sending a cursive letter mat home to help you support your child at home. First have a go at writing your child's name in pre cursive and then ( slowly ) have a go at writing longer words and sentences.


29.06.18   This week for homework please choose two challenges from the Space Home Learning Challenge worksheet ( copy attached). Homework is due on Wednesday 4th July.

Thank you

22.06.18 We would like to invite you to our Learning Journal Open Mornings at 8.45 until 9.00.

This is an opportunity for you to come into school with your child and spend some time looking at their Learning Journal together. It is a fantastic opportunity for your child to share with you what they have been doing in class, to show you their achievements thus far and to show you their learning environment.

There is no need to notify us whether you can attend or not, just simply come into class with your child on the date mentioned above.

We hope that you can make it and we look forward to seeing you then.

                   ENTERPRISE WEEK - WC 18th June 2018

Pencil grips!! Please see the resources below to help support your child hold their pencil correctly. The earlier they master it the better it is for them in the future.

We have started our new RE topic 'A Virtuous Life" this week and it follows on from the previous unit and the concept of caritas to explore more fully Church teaching on the cardinal virtues. This unit continues to present Luke’s Gospel as its source by teaching the story of the Good Samaritan as a model for a virtuous life. (PPT attached below)

HOMEWORK: cut out the picture and glue them in the boxes in the correct order of the things that happened in the story. 

8.06.18 Hello. I trust you all had a lovely half term - it certainly sounds like it after all the wonderful news and stories I've been told.

I am not setting homework as such this week because I think all the children are tired from our Sports week.  So, take this week to get back into the habit of daily reading and daily phonics activities and then the more structured homework will start coming home again next Friday :-)

25.05.18 We filled the system so I had to create a new page for our homeworks. Well done to us! :)

Phonics:This week we have spent some time revisiting our trigraphs air/ear/igh/ure. Recognising them on their own and in words but also independently writing them in words.

Literacy and Maths: As part of our topic on ‘Mini beasts’, the Reception children have been learning about the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. In Maths this week we have been measuring the length and width of our feet and we have been using directional vocabulary to program the Bee bots. In Literacy we have been imitating the story Jack and the Beanstalk. We received a large letter from the Giant and have enjoyed putting actions to the story. We now know the story really well. We have been learning to use subordinating conjunctions too. The children have been planting beans and are hoping we will see some beanstalks of our own very soon. Another busy week of learning.....


The focus for this half term is to read daily and then write a review of your favourite book. (you'll find the worksheet in the green book).

Help a child write a book review (tips from

 "Reviewing a favourite (or not so favourite) book helps a child's reading comprehension. It also gives him or her the opportunity to express an opinion through writing/speaking and develop his or her writing style and voice. Help the child choose a book to review. It can be a novel he or she is reading for fun or a book that was assigned for school. One way to encourage interest and have some fun with the project is to pick an alternative to a traditional young adult novel, such as a children’s picture book, a comic strip novel, or a book of photography."

Enjoy your  break!
