Reception Bulletin w/c 8th April

Posted on Updated on


Week Commencing 8th April

This week we will be learning the ow sound as in now, cow and down.  See the videos below from Geraldine the Giraffe and Mr Thorne to see what you can do at home 🙂

If the children would like to each bring a small or object (labelled with their name if they want it back) or a story about a cow or something going down or any other ‘ow’ thing, the teachers would love to see them.

The tricky word we will be learning is when, as in, “When I was on holiday I went to Legoland.”


In maths we will be looking at the concept of halving. Maybe in the holiday you can make some small pizzas together and share them by cutting them in half with a friend 🙂


We will be looking at letters and how we can write a letter to stay in touch with friends and family. If you are going on holiday, maybe you could send a postcard together to your family or even your class teacher!


Swimming Lessons will begin immediately after the Spring holidays. The children enjoy the experience even more if they feel confident about changing into, and out of, their swimming costumes.  Therefore please can we ask that you take the opportunity to help your child to practise taking off and putting on their own clothes over the coming weeks. If your child is already super independent about dressing perhaps they could practise rolling their own swimming towel. Rest assured though, that the teachers will be there to help with any tricky bits, and to encourage independence.

Have a lovely holiday and see you back in school on Sunday 8th April.
