Reception – Science Week


Next week is science week and the children will start the week off with the science workshop!  Throughout the rest of the week the children will have lots of fun exploring and investigating science experiments that link to the story, George’s Marvellous Medicine.  The children can come into school dressed as scientists everyday if they would like to, school uniform must be worn underneath a white shirt/laboratory coat, they can also wear glasses and/or a wig.  We are sure the children are going enjoy the week, so please ask your child to tell you about the experiments they have investigated.

Many thanks

The Early Years Team.

Spring Term in Reception


We are nearly half way through the Spring Term and the children are enjoying investigating our new Explorers Hut.  There is so much for them to discover in there and this week we have been focusing on the human body.  After half term will be introducing some exciting science experiments for the children to investigate.

This week in maths the children will be learning number bonds to ten (two numbers that make ten.)  We would like to encourage you to support this learning at home, therefore, at Parents Evening we will give you some ideas on how to make this learning fun.

Can we please remind you to check Tapestry as we have been using it to post the sounds and looking words we have been learning in phonics.  This will enable you to support your child’s phonics learning at home.

Please can you ensure that ALL clothing  is clearly named.

We look forward to seeing you at Parents Evening.
