Monday 16th July - Friday 20th July 2018


Dear Parents and Carers,  


We finish school for the summer on Friday 20th July at 2pm.

Thank you for all of your support this year and the Reception team hope that you all have a wonderful summer holiday!





So far, we have learnt the sounds of the alphabet. We have started learning about digraphs and have learnt sh, ch, ng, qu, th, ai, ee, igh, oa, both oo sounds, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, er and ure.

This week, we will be recapping the phase 3 sounds. 

Please also practice the tricky words I, no, to, go, into, the, put, me, we, be, he, you, my, all, they, her, was, are, have, said, like so, do and out.

Mathletics and Attendance challenge!!

Matheletics: If you use mathletics at home each week and earn 1000 points playing the games, your child's name will go into a raffle draw to win prizes! Class teachers will check weekly to see which children have earned 1000 points or more. Prizes will be given out at the end of term. 

Attendance: Each week the attendance percentage will be calculated for each class. The class with the highest attendance percentage (97% or above) will win a non-uniform day! So make sure your children are in school every day so they are in with a chance of winning! The class with the best attendance percentage for the term will win a trip to the cinema! 


We Need You!

If you have any spare time throughout the week and would like to volunteer to support children with their reading in class please speak to us!



We are also collecting boxes, clean bottles and recycling materials for our junk modelling area and activities. If you have any you could bring into school that would be great! 



Each week we will be visiting the school library. The children will be bringing home a library book which will then need to be returned weekly for the children to change. We will be visiting the library on Thursday.



  • P.E. bags should contain a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms/leggings and black plimsolls. Please ensure that your child's name is written clearly in each item of clothing.
  • The children will have P.E on Fridays and we encourage children to change themselves. If you could please support your child in taking off and putting on their own clothes at home this would be a great help.

Have a great week and please don't hesitate to ask us any questions,
