Summer 1

This term our topic is Minibeasts

I hope you are as excited as me to continue our reception journey!

During the next six weeks, we will be enjoying some really exciting learning. We will be exploring the topic ‘minibeasts’ – focusing on the book What The Ladybird Heard. We are going to get a very special delivery with our own minibeasts we can watch grow in class.

Please have a look at ‘The Curriculum Overview’ below to learn all about the exciting new things we will be learning about this half 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.


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.
