Reception 2018 - 2019

Mrs Langton

Welcome to Reception

Welcome back after the Easter holidays. We look forward to another exciting half term. Don't forget the Rhyme Challenge with Woodlands Pre-School on Tuesday 8th May 9.15-10.15 in the school hall. The children also have another opportunity to team up with Woodlands on Wednesday 16th May, for a Royal Garden Party to celebrate the forthcoming royal wedding.

Keep checking our class page for letters and pictures of all the fun activities that we have been doing. Also don’t forget to look at your child’s up to date Learning Journey via the Tapestry website. It is great to see that more and more of you are adding your own comments and photos of what your child is doing at home onto Tapestry.


For this final term, your child will be bringing home 5 high frequency words to learn each week for a spelling test. These will be given out on Wednesday afternoon and the children will have a week to learn them. The test will take place on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure that the spelling book is in the bag ready for the test on Wednesday.


PE kits will be sent home at the end of the term (if they get very dirty we will send them home before!) We will be having PE on a Tuesday afternoon, but there may be extra sessions and so it is easier to keep the kit in school to allow flexibility. To avoid us sending home someone else’s belongings, please can you ensure that you label all of your child’s school clothing. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to match up the correct clothing to the child when they all look the same!

We look forward to contuniuing to work in partnership with you this year. Your support at home really does make a huge difference. Don’t forget that we are here for you as well as your son or daughter. Please do not hesitate to make contact no matter how small you may think the issue may be.
