Reception – Summer Concert


For the Summer Concert dance, please could you provide a black t-shirt and black shorts or trousers or leggings for your child. Please send the costume into school by the end of next week in a bag which will remain in school until after the dance. Children will be wearing their normal black school shoes for the dance. Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name.


We hope that you are looking forward to seeing the children perform on Tuesday 23rd July, they have been practising hard and are very excited to show you their dance. Don’t forget that the Summer Fete will be immediately after the concert, it promises to be a great afternoon!


Thank you for your support

Reception – Here comes the sun!


It is possible that we will finally have some very hot weather next week according to the latest forecasts. Please make sure that children have the following in school with them EVERY day:

  • A named sun hat/cap
  • A named water bottle
  • Please also apply suncream on your child in the morning before leaving for school.

Please note that it is difficult to ensure that sunglasses don’t get damaged or lost, so it is preferable that children wear sunhats/caps to shade their eyes instead.

We will of course keep children cool and in the shade wherever possible, but there will still be times when they are outside, so all of the above will be necessary to keep them safe in the sun.

Thank you for your assistance with this.

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.
