In Elm class our P.E lessons are on a Tuesday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure P.E kits are in school on these days and all items are clearly labelled.


We use the outside area as our second classroom so please make sure the children bring suitable clothing as they will be outside whatever the weather. If possible please leave wellies (named) in school as we have a digging area, water wall and mud kitchen that the children have daily access to.

Our learning- 17.9.18


The children have all enjoyed their first few weeks at school and have been very busy, trying new activities and making new friends. Some of the activities we have been exploring include using natural materials to make a picture of our faces, painting, using playdough, fishing for numbers and making a giant ball run.


This week we will be continuing with our ‘all about me’ topic. The children will be painting portraits of themselves and we will be naming different facial features and exploring colouring mixing.


We will also be going on a number walk around school to see how many different numbers we can spot and recognise. Why not see how many numbers your child can spot when you are out and about at the weekend or on your way to school?


As part of our class circle time sessions we have been discussing people and objects that are special to us and as part of this work we would like the children to bring in a bear or a soft toy on Friday 21st September. The children will be writing a label for their bear and drawing or painting a picture of it. We will also be making sandwiches in the morning and all 3 reception classes will be having a joint picnic in the afternoon.


Please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions.


Thank you for your continued support.
