Reception Final Class News


It has been a fantastic year and the Reception Cubs have all grown and gained confidence and skills to prepare them for the adventures to come.

We appreciated your cheers at Sport’s day and your applause for the Christmas Play as well.

Suggested holiday learning, Apps and Websites

There are lots of ways you can keep the children’s learning going over the long holiday. Play card games like Uno, Snakes and ladders using a board and dice or dominoes. Work with your child to send an email to their new teacher or a friend they want to keep in touch with. Encourage them to say the sentences they want to write out loud. Then type them, locating the letter keys and space bar. Take photos of the places you visit and create a special book or diary of your adventures. Above all have lots of fun together so your child will come back to school with so much to share with their teachers and class mates.
