Our Reception curriculum keeps us busy and active everyday but we will be changing into our P.E kits on a Friday during the summer term so that we can enjoy other physical activities and practice with those tricky buttons! P.E kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. All items need to be named and kept on your child’s peg in a named bag.
Please bring in a set of spare clothes for your child, with a plastic bag so that we can return any dirty or wet clothes to you in a bag to save other clothes getting wet.
Weekly Challenge- every Friday on the Reception Newsletter there will be an optional challenge for you to complete at home. These challenges will cover skills across our curriculum and will be short, fun activities that should be an enjoyable experience for you and your child.
Reading – Every child has a school reading book and a library book to enjoy at home with your support. When you listen to your child read please sign the diary to say you have done so. We ask that children read each book at least twice before requesting a change.
In order to fund ingredients for cooking and resources such as food colouring, tissues, ingredients, bubble bath etc, we have set up a voluntary ‘Reception Fund’ of £5 per half term. The way to pay this is flexible; it can be given half termly (£5 six times a year), termly (£10 three times a year), or yearly (£30 a year). We greatly appreciate all contributions, and are looking forward to seeing the funds put to use to allow for exciting activities throughout the year in Reception. Thank you!
