Heymann Primary & Nursery School

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


Thanks for visiting the Reception page. Here we will share information about what the children are learning, general comments and other things. Email us at with any questions or comments and we will get back to you. Please look at the page for each week so you know what we will be doing in school. If you need to self-isolate you will find any information on work you can do at home with your child on these pages.

Talk Tasks

With each topic, we will be uploading a "Talk Task" sheet for you to look at with your child. Talk Tasks show you some new important words your child will be learning at school and give you some ideas of extra activities you can try at home to support their learning.


We will continue to have windows open to help the airflow and minimise Covid-19 risks. Please make sure your child is dressed for colder weather and has a jumper or cardigan.

Show and Tell - My Photos

Each week a few children from each class will be selected to talk about their family, interests and experiences. When it is your turn, you will receive a note in your child's book bag. Please email in some photos that your child can talk about. Make sure they are meaningful and things they are happy to talk about. e.g. a picture of them on holiday, a toy that they like that came from a special place or person, 

Reading at Home

Keep reading books to your child at bedtime. We will continue to change reading books on Tuesdays and Fridays if your child has read them at home. Your child will also have a "guided reading" book in their bag each week or 2 weeks. This is a book they will be reading in a small group with their teacher during morning bucket groups once a week.

We will be regularly updating this page, so please check for extra information.
