Welcome To The New School Year 


Welcome to the start of the Autumn term and the start of 'big school'! The children have settled in and adapted to their new environment and routines amazingly. 

We've already had an exciting start to school including the Tour of Britain bike race through Wickham and a visit from the brilliant bubbleologist Steph, who showed us lots of tricks and fun ideas linked to exploring bubbles which, we tried in our outdoor area. 

This half term we are learning about different types of transport and how it is used, the children have enjoyed learning about transport so much that it has continued into their independent play - we have built double decker buses and trains! 


General information: 

  • Reception will have PE on a Wednesday morning, please ensure they have the correct kit and all items are labelled. 
  • The children will be receiving a fun keyring with the phonics sounds we have covered, please ensure this is in or attached to your child's book bag everyday so I can add the sounds accordingly each week. It would be great if you could practise the sounds with your child and practise writing them.
  • The children will visit the school library on a Tuesday afternoon and will be bringing a book home of their choice, please ensure they are returned each week. 


Please feel free to come and talk to me if you have any concerns or questions.
