We have had a fantastic first term together in Reception and we are already ‘celebrating’ our successes and are looking forward to the ‘festivities’ ahead for Term 2! You may already have guessed that our new topic will be ‘Let’s Celebrate’. This is the time of year where many cultures and religions have all kinds of different festivities - we will be learning all about how they celebrate them.


In addition, Forest School also starts in Term 2. 

Unfortunately, due to a clash with our first performance of the nativity, Pop Class will be unable to go to Forest School on November 29th. We will try to make this up at some point during the year.


PE will continue to be on a Monday afternoon. Please can your child wear their PE Kit to school each Monday.

We will continue learning our Phase 2 phonemes and Common Exception Words in Phonics. Please practise these with your children. They are so excited to be learning a new sound each day!

Below are the Phase 2 phoneme mat and Common Exception words that the children are learning.

We are very proud to announce that this term we are putting on our own production of the Nativity.

Below is some more information letter telling you all about it!!
