In Reception there are lots of opportunities for the children to enjoy outdoor activities.  Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat and wellies in school at all times.  If you could provide a change of clothes for your child (can be mufti) this would be helpful.                                                               

Please can all parents ensure that they provide snack money for their children on a weekly basis.  This will ensure that all children can join in with our daily snack. 

Please Note:  Snack money is not only used to provide the daily snack but also helps to ensure the children have opportunities to enjoy a variety of cultural food tasting, cooking opportunities and class celebrations.


We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and would like to wish you a Happy New Year.


This term we have lots of exciting things planned.  During this first spring term we will be looking at the changing weather, Traditional Tales and Fairy Tales.  The children will be learning about stories, their settings and the characters included in different stories.   They will have the opportunity to use their imagination in their play before writing stories of their own.  Finally they will have the opportunity to write their own invitation to ‘The Great Rowan Ball’ which will take place in the last week of term.
