Welcome to Reception!

Autumn 1

This term our topic is Under the Sea

We hope you have had a fantastic summer holidays and are ready for your first year at school!

This half term we will be getting to know each other and making new friends. 

We are going to enjoy looking at the story, The Rainbow Fish linking it to English, Maths, Expressive Art and Design and Understanding the World. 

Please have a look at The Curriculum Overview (files to download at the bottom of the page) to find out what we will be learning about over this last term.


Each half term Reception receive a homework grid. There are a variety of activities to have a go at on the grid. We understand that family life is busy therefore it is not essential that all of these activities are completed, we do ask that your child aims to complete some of the activities to reinforce their learning across the curriculum and allows children to showcase their creative skills.

Our homewok grid will be sent home in a few weeks, once the children are settled in. 


Reception have a P.E. session every Thursday morning. Please can you ensure children come to school in their PE kit ready.

Cool Milk

If you would like your child to have milk you will need to register them on the cool milk website. Once your child has turned 5 if you wish for them to continue having milk it is important you re register and pay the required termly fee.


In Reception we have a learning platform called 'Tapestry' 

'Tapestry' is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Reception curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experences during their time with us. It is also an extremely effective platform to help us support both yourself and your child's learning at home. 

Please continue to check Tapestry regularly to see all of the hard work your children have been getting up to throughout the day. 

Thank you. 

If there is anything I can help or support with please email me on katie.jones@st-marymagdalens.lancs.sch.uk
