Hello Reception,

We hope you have had a fantastic Easter holiday and have got plenty of news to share with us on Monday! As usual after a break, we will spend some time sharing our news, looking at any photos that have been put on Tapestry, thank you to those who have already uploaded it looks like you have been very busy.


Our topic for this half term is Once Upon a Time and we are focusing on traditional tales. We start our topic off by looking at the story of Jack and The Beanstalk. We will learn the story using the Talk for Writing technique. In maths we will he using magic beans to consolidate our counting and addition skills.


We will NOT be swimming the first week back after the holidays, but will begin the following week. (Monday 26th April). Please could children wear PE kit on swimming days to help ease of changing. It would also be great if children could practise drying themselves after showers/ baths as many find this tricky initially. Don't forget, children will need swimming costumes/ trunks, a towel, and goggles. Swimming hats are required for children who's hair is longer than their collar. Please make sure you have let the office know by email if your child requires a shower after swimming. It will be a rinse off, so shower gels etc are not required.


PE days are now Monday and Tuesday so please ensure your child is wearing kit on those days, their hair is up and all earrings are removed or taped up.


Hopefully this lovely weather will continue next week. Please make sure that children have the correct outdoor clothing for the weather conditions and that their spare clothes are returned to school including changes of underwear and socks. A light raincoat is always a good idea at this time of year, but we will soon be needing sun hats too. If you would like your child to apply suncream during the day, please make sure you send in a named container. Children will apply the cream themselves, but we will supervise them. Children are not allowed to share cream unless we have specific instructions from both sets of parents.


Enjoy your weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday!
