Heymann Primary & Nursery School

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

Welcome to the Reception Page                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

We hope you have had an excellent Easter it is good to see all the children come back, ready for their last term in Reception. In our final term, we are focusing on the children's skills and independence in the run up to Year One. It has been a wonderful year with the children and it is hard to believe they will be moving up to soon.

This term's topics include traditional tales, on the farm and animals as well as insects. In the second half term we will be zooming into space and having lots of adventures with aliens!  The children will be learning about different insects and explore their habitats as well as general similarities and differences. We will use this topic as a means to develop knowledge and skills as 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.

It has been wonderful to see the children improve in their reading and writing. Please keep reading with children regularly. With your collaboration, your child can reach their full potential and they will learn to read and write full sentences.

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 water bottle each day and 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.
