Reception Bulletin w/c 22nd April

Posted on


Week Commencing 22nd April


This week we will be learning the tr and st sound as in trick and stop.  Please see the video below for a short video reminder of some st words.For additional practice the children could hunt for st words in a book that they enjoy at home; if they list the st words the class teachers would really love to see them.

If the children would like to each bring a small st or tr object (labelled with their name if they want it back) or a story about a trick or a stamp or any other tr or st thing, the teachers would love to share them with the class.

The tricky word we will be learning is, what. On the way to school in the car the children could practise asking what questions such as, “what colour is the car in front of us?” or “ what is man doing on the pavement?”


In Maths we will be learning to understand and use words and phrases used for direction eg turn left, turn right, go forwards, go backwards. There is a fun Pirate game at where the children can practise following directions using the arrows on the keyboard.


In topic we are still learning about letters and how they are written and delivered all around the world as we find out more about ‘Keeping in touch’. If you have time writing a postcard with your child and going together to buy a stamp and posting it at the post office would really help the children to understand the way letters work, particularly if you write the letter to yourself so that it is delivered back home again.

Watching “Postman Pat Has Too Many Parcels” would help the children’s understanding too 🙂

Swimming Lessons will continue for the rest of this term. Please ensure towels, caps, goggles, swimming costumes etc are all labelled with your child’s name and class.

The Reception Summer Concert will be on Thursday 21st June.  Please inform the class teacher if your child will not be in school on that date.

Spare Clothing  If a child has an accident at school they are loaned spare clothing from Ms Sabera’s store in the Reception Corridor.  We ask that the clothes are returned to school freshly laundered as soon as possible.  Unfortunately not everyone remembers to return these items of clothing (dresses, shirts, trousers, shorts, underpants, panties, socks etc) and the store is now almost empty.  If your child has ever borrowed some of our spare clothes please could you check your cupboards, and if you find anything that may have come from school, please return it. It would also be helpful if nannies could be reminded of the need to return any borrowed clothes, too.

If you have any school uniform or undergarments which your child has grown out of, and you no longer have a use for, we would be very grateful to have them to add to our store of spare clothing.
