Reception will have P.E. every Monday. Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct kit, which is a school P.E. t-shirt, plain black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms and trainers on these days. 


Forest School

Every Wednesday afternoon, the children will take part in Forest School. The children can come dressed in their PE clothes on this day. We will change in to our forest school clothes in the afternoon. This may include waterproofs depending on the weather.

Below, you will find a copy of the actions for each of the sounds in Phases 2 & 3, the letter formation patters (rhymes) we say to support children's formation of each letter when writing and the 'families' that these letters are put into for our handwriting practice. 

The family groups consist of letters which use the same writing shapes as a basis to form each letter in that group.

What you can do to help at home


It is really important that we work together to follow, guide and support your child's development of learning. Please do share with us anything new that your child is doing at home, anything you think they need support with and also any special moments.You can do this by using your 'Tapestry' app. 


Just a few other things you can do to support your child's learning and development at home are:


  • Allow your child to be as independent as possible. Can they get themselves dressed? Can they put their shoes on? Can they do up the zips or buttons on their coats? It is important to give them time to practice.
  • Each day, share a story together and ask your child questions about what they have read, to check how well they’ve understood the story. 
  • Practise new phonics sounds and tricky words that we send out to you via Tapestry.
  • Choose rhyming stories to read like 'What the ladybird hear', 'Fox socks' or 'Room on a Broom'.  If you read the same rhyming story often then your child will eventually join in.
  • Take some quality time to talk to each other. 
  • Make some special time together to have fun. This could be playing a board game, building something out of lego, cooking, acting out a story with teddies/mini figures, painting a picture, making something out of recycled materials, making some play dough or dancing. 
  • Sing nursery rhymes together like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive or Five little monkeys, Humpty Dumpty.
