Summer Term

Welcome Back

We hope that all of our families have had a relaxing and peaceful break. We are so excited for a Summer term full of lots of fun, laughter and learning. 


This term we will consolidate our phonics learning by applying the sounds that we have learnt to reading and writing captions and simple sentences. We will be consolidating our understanding of the number system to 10, looking at number bonds within this. We have lots to look forward to this half term and can't wait to continue this journey with you and your children. 

We would like to thank you again for trusting us with your wonderful children and we appreciate your continued support.

In the Summer term we are reading...

Summer 1

Summer 2

Suitable Clothing

In Reception a lot of our time is spent outside. Please ensure that your child is well equipped for all weather. This includes sending your child in with a water bottle, a sun hat/glasses and sun cream that is clearly named as we approach the warmer months.


The children have P.E lessons every Friday. The children are able to come into school in their PE kit on a Friday and wear this all day. 


We send home book bags and reading diaries daily which should also come into school everyday. We will send home new reading books on Friday ready for the weekend.


Remember to look on Tapestry frequently to see some of the amazing things we are getting up to! We will continue to keep updating Tapestry with any important information as well as any observations we make on your children. Alternatively we would love you to upload anything that your child is doing at home as we love to learn about your child's learning journey at home. 


Phonics Parent Video

The staff from Nursery, Reception and Year One have come together to make a video for you. Please don’t expect any wonderful acting or photography but we are hoping that this makes your child’s phonic journey a little bit clearer to you.

Please find the link below so that you can watch it in your leisure.

Water Bottles

All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.


Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.
