Autumn Term 2017

To start off our year in Reception, our topic is 'All About Me' and have been thinking about what makes us special, just like Elmer!

This week, we have been making 3D Elmers and looking at textures to make and paint a large 2D Elmer.  We have been continuing our work on counting and number recognition. We continue to practise our pencil grip and letter formation when writing our names. The new sounds we have been learning are p,i,n, which your child has for homework this week.  Please also note that your child has a unique password and username to access Bug Club.  During the week, you and your child will be able to access books allocated via the school.

** Reminder **

Please note that Reception will not have a Parents' Evening this term but will have one later on in the academic year.  

Lunch Time

The Reception team are very impressed with how super the children have been at getting ready for lunch and lining up for their food! Well done! 

Reminder: Please discuss the lunch time menu choices with your child so that they are able to tell us which option they would like to have for lunch. 

** Classroom Snack **

A quick reminder for children who have not participated in snack. If you wish for your child to have snack then please send your child in with £7 for this half term. All children are enjoying this part of their learning as well as enjoying the snack!

Please scroll down to the 'Files to Download' section and see the photostory of both our first and second weeks in school!



Elm and Oak class will shortly be given Bug Club and Mathletic log in details so that they can access books and maths activities at home too.  

  • Homework will go home with the children every Friday and is to be returned on Tuesday at the latest.
  • Elm & Oak will have PE on a Tuesday.  Please make sure PE kits are in every week.  Encourage the children to get themselves changed each morning and this will help them with the skills required in school.  
  • Please name all of your childs things. This includes: lunch boxes and bags as well as uniform and coats. 
  • There is the opportunity for the children to have milk at snack time.  Please book your child in at
