Learning celebration: Dippers' learning celebration has been postponed until Friday 15th November at 2:30pm as we will be in our refurbished classroom and keen to show you around.

Dippers are on the move: After half term, Dippers will be in their refurbished classroom in the main building. Drop off and pick up will be via the Reception footpath that goes past the school office.

Save the date: The Dippers' Winter show will be on Monday 16th December, 9:30am

Current Topic

Welcome to Reception! This half term, we will be learning about ourselves and each other through our topic 'All About Us'.

This week, we had a visit from lighting technicians from The Junction. Together, we looked at how we could add different colours using spot lights.

At the start of the next half term, we will be sharing our learning about our new school community with a guided walk around our school, led by the Reception children.

In-class Learning

RWInc Phonics

In our phonics session, the children have been learning about the sounds made by the following letters: m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k. We have also practised writing them.

Maths learning

In maths this week, we are looking at recognising quantities either by counting them one by one, or by seeing them as arrangements of amounts in small groups.

Home Learning


Take time to read a story with your child at bed time. If you would like story recommendations or to borrow a book please talk to Ms Hulston.

Letter formation

Encourage your child to colour and draw, so as to get ready for letter formation. If you would like to borrow any craft materials, please talk to Ms Hulston.

Number sense

You can support your child's sense of number by counting steps, forwards and backwards, as you go up stairs and by counting scoops of food.
