Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas 

Reception – Why do squirrels hide their nuts?


The new projects run for the second half of the Autumn 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 1ST DECEMBER 2023.


Below are some ideas, try one of these or something else project related

  • You could go on an autumn walk and collect some autumn leaves and use them to make a picture or collage.
  • Make a leaf or bark rubbing.
  • Make a firework picture.
  • Draw a picture of a woodland animal.
  • Go on a bug hunt and draw a picture of things you found.


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


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.
