Different Writing Ideas

We wanted to share some writing opportunities and ideas that we do in school that you could have a go at at home!

Welcome to Reception H!


We are very excited to welcome our new Reception children this year. We are looking forward to a fantastic year full of fun and learning!


Please make sure your children have everything they need to start their exciting first year at school such as book bags, PE kits, spare change of clothes, water bottles, wellies and reading records once they receive them. Please make sure everything is clearly labelled with your child's name and class.


Our topic this half term is "All About Me!". Over this topic, the children will talk about themselves, likes, dislikes, their families, bodies and keeping healthy.

This half term the children will also begin learning across the prime and specific areas, looking at phonics, literacy, numeracy, understanding the world, physical education, expressive arts and design and personal social and emotional development.


Please regularly check your child's online Learning Journal on Tapestry either via the website or the app. We will post updates of your child's week and their learning as well as special activities!
