Your child has brought home a yes/ no card that they have made themselves. Please use it to play the yes/ no game. Ask them silly questions eg is the sky purple? Do you like brussel sprouts? Can you fly like Superman? etc. The children show you yes or no

Reception routine and curriculum
In Reception class we have lots of opportunities to learn through play. We love to make things, build, play games and pretend! We have Literacy and Numeracy lessons where we learn to read, write, and find out about numbers, shapes and measurement. Through our Topic work we investigate, explore and create. We also learn how to be good friends and helpful members of the class.
This takes place any day of the week. I need a named t-shirt and shorts in a bag. This can be left on my peg for half a term so I don’t forget it.
Topics for this Term:
We will be given reading books and words to learn at home. I need to practice these for a few minutes every night.
Thank you for your support
Don't forget the children will need sportswear [shorts or jogging bottoms, trainers or pumps] on Thursday as we head up to Eckington Secondary for a bike riding festival. Please let me know if you are able to help. Children will also need a bottle of water.
We need boxes of all shapes and sizes for junk modelling on Thursday and Friday please. Cereal boxes are great [and any others you may have]. We will be recycling them into moving toys.
Don't forget to dress up as your favourite storybook character on Friday.
Thanks to the Parents who came to the Reading meeting today. I hope you found it useful. Please remember staff are always happy to answer any questions. If you were unable to attend, handouts have been sent home with your child.
We will be going on our Autumn walk on Thursday 15th October. Please remember to send your child in old shoes or wellies and a waterproof coat. More helpers needed to come with us please.
We have been finding out about 'Healthy Living' this week. Here are our rules for staying healthy: Eat fruit and vegetables
Drink plenty of water
Get lots of exercise
Brush your teeth twice a day
Wash your hands with soap
Get a good night's sleep
We are really looking forward to our walk in the woods on Tuesday. We are going to become explorers looking for lions! We need some grown up explorers to accompany us. If you are able to spare some time we would be very grateful. We will leave at 9am and return no later than 10:30am
We also need some kitchen rolls so that we can make binoculars on Monday. Please send in as many as you have. Thankyou
