Welcome to Year R
Welcome to the Year R Home Page

Dear Parents and Carers,

As the children embark on their final term in Year R we are excited to announce our two learning themes for the Summer term. The first learning theme, ‘Get up and Grow’ will see the children exploring lifecycles of insects and plants and discussing how we grow and change. They will develop their information writing, apply their observation skills and discuss similarities and differences. The second half of the summer term will focus on our learning theme of Traditional Tales.

Weekly Home Learning
Weekly home learning will be sent through your child’s Tapestry account, also outlining some recommended activities to help further support that week’s learning at home. We will also be including our ‘Family Fun Challenge.’ Home readers will be sent home each week; please continue to use Big Cats at home too! Do not forget to practise your flashcards as we aim to get all children to complete their cream colour before the end of Reception.

Year R PE Days
Our PE Day will continue to be Thursday. Please ensure that your child arrives at school in their PE kit on Thursday each week. Please also ensure that long hair is tied back and earrings are either removed or covered over on these days. As with all items, please ensure that all of your child’s PE Kit is clearly labelled.

Thank you
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. If you have any messages for the class teacher, please contact the school via the ‘Contact Us’ tab on the school website, or by phone if urgent, and the office team will ensure that your message gets to the class teacher.
