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 pants, 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.

Reception Reminders

  • Reception homework is set on Friday each week and is sent home through MarvellousMe
  • Each week the children should complete one Reading Eggs assignment, one Mathseeds assignment 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.


Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas – Do cows drink milk? 


Fun on the farm! 

This half term we will be finding out all about farm animals and life on the farm. We will also be visiting Bocketts farm after we complete our project.


Help your child prepare for their project

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 19th May.  

Reception class will be playing in the role play shop, learning about farm foods and about animals and their young.  


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

  • Write a shopping list of foods that you could buy at the farm shop.   
  • Create a farm scene with playdough and bring in a photograph.
  • Make a farm shop at home with boxes and props and send us a photograph.
  • Draw a picture of farm animals and their young and add labels.
  • Make a farm collage with a woolly sheep or a black and white cow. 
  • Write a farm adventure comic.

Or create something farm themed that they are interested in.
