Reception Newsletter September 2018


Welcome to a new school year Emma, Mandy, Martin, Rena and Harvinder hope

you all had a good summer break and are ready to support us to help your children

to work hard, have fun and achieve academically and socially during the coming year.


This 1/2 term our topic is called Magical Me!


During this half term, we will spend a great deal of time talking about our similarities and differences. We will be finding out how MAGICALLY unique we all are. We will be talking to the children about the MAGICAL skills they already possess and what they need to do to make their skills into MAGICAL powers!


Where in the World

We believe that our family histories need to be celebrated and shared with others, so during this half term we will be talking to the children about themselves and their families. To make this learning opportunity successful we need your help, talk to your children about you – what you do, where you come from, let them know about your history, cultural and religious background. I am sure you will be surprised by how interested they are. By the end of the 1/2 term we hope to have designed a display that acknowledges the diversity we have within the classes.


A few quick reminders


Reading books please make sure you listen to your child read each night. Talk about the pictures, practise any letters/words that are sent home and please make comments in the reading log and send their book back into school each day.


Outdoor play - please make sure your child has suitable clothing, waterproof coat, wellingtons, sunhat, gloves, etc.  We go outside every day rain or shine.

Please remember to put names in all clothes, shoes, bags, lunch boxes, etc.


After school club Polkadots – We are lucky that we can provide an afterschool club for children in Reception. Polkadots is a music based club which will run termly on a Wednesday after school. You will receive more information about Polkadots in a separate letter at a later date.


Homework – children will have a daily homework sheet for the first few weeks of the term that supports the letter and sound they are learning in phonics each day. These do not take long to do and will reinforce their learning. It would be great to have your support in this as it is the foundation of starting to read and write. Towards the end of this half-term, we will change and adapt the homework depending on how the children are progressing and communicate this to you.

  Children celebrating their 5th birthday this half term are:

  Precious, Parsa, Faisal, Karolina and Lazarus.


A big happy birthday to you all.


Finally we all look forward to working closely with you all during the next year

Emma, Mandy, Martin, Rena, and Harvinder.
