Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas 

Summer 1 – Do cows drink milk?


The new project will run for the first half of the Summer Term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home by FRIDAY 17th MAY 2024.  


Old Macdonald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o! Do cows drink milk? What are baby pigs called? It’s time to find out more about life on the farm and the animals that live there. 


For your child’s homework they can pick one of the following to complete: 


  • Farms are fantastic! Why not explore your kitchen cupboards together and talk about where different foods come from? 

  • Draw pictures of your favourite farm animal 

  • Draw a picture of a tractor 

  • Plant a seed and take pictures as it grows 

  • Find out facts on your favourite farm animals 

  • Or create something farm themed that they are interested in.  


We will be displaying all of the children's work in the classroom.


Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing your creations 

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts.   

Please remember to bring:

In case of accidents all children need;

  • A spare set of clothes; including pants, socks, a top and bottoms, which remain at school in their locker. 

They also need;

  • their book bag and water bottle everyday.
  • no laces on school or PE shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age.

Please see below the Powerpoint shared during the induction session.

Reception Reminders

  • Reception homework is set on Friday each week and is sent home through MarvellousMe
  • Each week the children should complete one Mathseeds assignment, recap their Little Wandle sounds and tricky words from the week and read both their class book and reading scheme book as many times as possible.
  • All information to Reception parents is sent via MarvellousMe. In addition to any general information each child has one  observation per week.  
  • Medical Tracker is the app the school uses to email you regarding any first aid or medication that has been administered to your child. You will receive this information by email.

Little Wandle is our phonics scheme.  Here is the link to explore more of what this looks like for your child.
