Welcome to Term 4 in Reception!


We have lots more exciting plans for our next term in Reception! We are launching our new Space topic on Monday 25th February with our 'dress up' day and we will be basing some of our space learning on the books 'Here Come the Aliens' and 'We're Off to Look for Aliens' by Colin McNaughton.


We are taking the Reception children on a trip on Tuesday 26th February to 'We the Curious', with a half-hour session in the brilliant Planetarium and then exploring the exhibits in small groups. Thank you to all the parents and carers who have offered help on this trip.


Some dates for your diary:


Reception PE

Our Reception PE days have changed to Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children should wear their PE kits to school on these days. On Wednesday afternoons, Reception Oak and Beech will be having outdoor learning sessions with Mr Welti and Mr Gill, supported by Mrs Jones and Mrs Easton. On Thursday afternoons, both classes will be having gym sessions with 'Bristol Forever Sport'.


'Mission to Mars' workshop

We will be holding our 'Mission to Mars' curriculum workshop on Wednesday 27th March from 2pm to 3.15pm where you and your child will take part in a variety of space-themed activities covering all areas of learning for our reception curriculum. This will give you an opportunity to experience some examples of the learning your children take part in every day.



We are all looking forward to a very happy and successful term in Reception Beech and Oak. Many thanks for all of your continuing support - and especially for supporting your children with regular reading and 'Mathletics'.
