Reception – Welcome to the summer term.


We hope you all had a lovely break and enjoyed the sun over the Easter weekend.

During the first week back we were learning about Easter and we acted out the Easter story.  The children especially enjoyed reinacting The Last Supper, where they were able to share bread and drink some red grape juice as a whole class.  This week we have been learning The Gingerbread Man story, as a whole class we have created a story map in order for the children to recall the story independently.  Ask your child to tell you the story, along with the actions we have put together.

In maths we have been learning addition and subtraction.  The children are beginning to understand both concepts along with key information on how to find  and check the answer. We are beginning to practise racing games in PE to prepare the children for sports day, therefore, could you please provide your child with trainers (not plimsolls) for PE next Friday.  Summer is hopefully approaching, therefore, could you please put sun cream on your child and provide them with a sun hat when appropriate (no sunglasses please).

If your child came home with sounds to practise, could you please help them with this. Please all share your child’s reading  book with them daily and please continue to enjoy playing your child’s maths game with them.

Our nature area is now under way and the children have been very enthusiastic to help plant a range of different colourful plants  including strawberry plants and some herbs.  To develop this further we will be planting vegetable seeds and some tomato plants.  We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents that helped develop this area and another big thank you to everyone who has donated plants, flowers and seeds.

Please remember all letters are now sent out via email and you can also get information from reading our blogs by downloading the Wormley Primary School app.

Thank you for your continued support.

Starfish and Angelfish.

Reception Birdwatching Walk-Important Information


Angelfish and Starfish Class

Please note that our Bird-watching Walk will now take place on Friday morning (15th March) when the weather will hopefully be better. If you have already volunteered to help with the walk, please could you let us know if you can still come on Friday morning.




Angelfish & Starfish – New Nature Area-A Big Thank You!


A huge thank you to the parents and other family members who were able to help us set up our new outdoor Nature Area on Saturday morning. Jim, Dave, Shelley, Claire, Haddy, Maria, Barry, George and Gloria all joined us, braving the wind and Spring showers to have a big tidy up and to create a log trail, balance beam trail, bird hide, bug hotel, tyre swing and planter. We can’t wait to show the children their new area this morning! We will begin planting with the children in the next week or so, if you would like to make any donations of seeds, herbs, vegetable plants, lavender plants, flowers or compost to help us to get started, we would be most grateful.

Our new bird hide will come in useful this week as our Science Week focus is on birds. We’ll be launching our week with an exciting assembly with some special owl visitors-more details to follow. We will also be encouraging the children to spot and identify birds outdoors and it would be great if you could do the same when you are out and about with your children-if they record what they see they could share their findings with us. We will also be taking the children on a bird-watching walk and would love you to join us if you can. At the moment we are planning to do this on Wednesday morning, however we are keeping a close eye on the weather forecast and may need to postpone the walk until Friday. We will let you know as soon as possible if are going to change the day.
