Heymann Primary & Nursery School

Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be

Welcome to the Reception Page                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Welcome to the Heymann Foundation page. We are so happy to be back and it has been wonderful to meet the new children. There are so many amazing adventures coming up and we can't wait for Bonfire Night, Diwali, Christmas and our Nativity. Until then, the children will be learning all about super heroes, people who help us and school life.

The children will be learning many key skills this term that will be the foundation for their school lives. Children will be playing lots of social games and doing lots of activities to improve their listening and attention skills. They will also be learning the fundamentals of reading, writing and maths.

 Our topic of Super Heroes will inspire the children and get them to use different skills. We will use this topic as a means to develop knowledge aas they explore ways to express their own ideas in their own learning. Children will learn through discussion, creation and reflection as we talk, build and share.

Heymann also sends out books within the first few weeks of the year. The first books will have no words and instead they will focus on looking at pictres, making up stories and handling books appropriately. We will explain more about the school's approach to reading and writing at our curriculum meeting.

Make sure to check our parent plan on the door for any more information. 

We are doing PE every week on Friday mornings. For safety reasons please ensure no jewellery is worn on these days. Please check you have named all of your child's clothes! The children will keep their PE kit in school and these will be sent home at the end of each half term.

Please ensure your child brings their books and reading diary are in their book bags. If you have indicated that they have read their books at home we will change them on Tuesdays and Fridays.

If you have any questions we will be happy to speak to you about them.
