Reception Newsletter Autumn Term 2 2018


Firstly, a big ‘Thank you’ to all of you who came to support our Harvest Festival. We hope that you enjoyed it as much as the children. It has been great to catch up with you on the consultation evenings too – our partnership with you is very important to us. Please keep sending back the ‘weekly planning sheets’, we love to hear about how children’s learning in school impacts at home.


We have a very busy term ahead of us, with lots of exciting learning experiences planned.  We have already this term enjoyed a ‘pretend’ Diwali Celebration.


Just so that you know, we are also ‘Up in the Stars’. Thank you to everyone who sent in a beautiful ‘Family Challenge’ home made star. They are amazing!


Our stories for the next few weeks are ‘Can’t You Sleep Little Bear?’ and the Oliver Jeffers books – ‘The Way Back Home’ (lots of space adventures) as well as ‘How To Catch A Star’.




We are also exploring the effects of Light and Dark – the children will have fun playing with torches in their ‘dark role play caves’.


Later on we are hoping to take the children on a trip to the Langney Library to enjoy some seasonal stories read by the Librarian. If you would like to accompany us, please let your class teacher know once we have arranged a date. Thank you.



In December we will be performing a lovely traditional Nativity and will send costume requirements home nearer the time, thank you.


We are very proud to be a MindUp school.  The children will continue to practice mindful breathing.  They know this will calm their brain and will help them to learn.  They have really enjoyed learning about the different parts of the brain and what they do.

Finally, if you have some ‘small’ junk material at home – boxes, tubes, yoghurt pots etc, we would love to turn them into rockets and space ships.


Thank you for your continuing support.
