Heymann Primary & Nursery School

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


Thanks for visiting the Reception class 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.

Summer term

We are very excited about all of the fun things we will be doing during our final term together - we hope the children are too.

The children have now been given their Heymann sun hats which they are doing a great job of looking after. These will stay at school.


Thank you once again for all your hard work at home with the children and supporting them in their learning. We know these last few weeks have been particularly difficult for many families, each one facing a different situation. Thank you, also, for all your messages of thanks and encouragement - this has been a team effort from home and school and we have made it through.

Weather Changes

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. Hopefully, as we enter Spring, the days will become a little warmer.

About Me - Show and tell 

Every Thursday, a child from each class will be selected to talk about their family, interest and experience. 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 it is meaningful and something they know well. e.g. a picture of them on holiday, a toy that they like that came from a special place or person, 

Reading at Home

We will continue to change reading books on a Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child's books and reading record are in their book bag each day.

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