Reception Spring Newsletter

Mrs Divall - 24 Feb 2015

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you had a lovely half term holiday! 

This half term our topic is called ‘Living and Growing.’  In particular, we are going to be focussing on healthy lifestyle choices, including where food comes from.  We are going to be planting seeds in our vegetable patch and also growing beans when we read Jack and the Beanstalk.

I was wondering whether any of you were interested in helping out with our growing project.  We need to weed and clear the vegetable patch area, as well as develop one of the small sheds into a ‘gardening centre’ where we can keep some gardening resources.  We also need to print off, cut out and laminate some learning resources for the area.  I believe it would take one or two people a couple of mornings or afternoons to help get us ready to start planting.  Please let me know if you are interested!

So, what books are we learning from this half term?
23.02.15 – Mama Panya’s Pancakes
02.03.15 – Handa’s surprise
09.03.15 - Jack and the Beanstalk
16.03.15 - Jim and the Beanstalk
23.03.15 - Oliver’s Vegetables


 As it was Pancake Day during half term, we are reading and learning from a Kenyan story called ‘Mama Panya’s pancakes’ this week.  It is set in a Kenyan village.  We need to learn to talk about different ways of life and recognise similarities and differences about our cultures and others.  We will be thinking about how the little boy in the story must walk to a market with hardly any money to buy the ingredients for pancakes, and how we can just pop to the local supermarket to buy food from all over the world! 

Please don’t forget that we will be visiting Tesco’s on Thursday morning.  All children will need to order or bring a sandwich that day, just in case we are not back in time for hot meals.  Thank you to all of you who offered to help on the trip.  I chose the first two helpers who replied to help on this trip and I have saved the remaining kind volunteers names for the next trip, in case you are interested in helping again!

Just a couple of notes – we will generally be having PE on Wednesday mornings, unless we have to swap our hall time with another class.  Please make sure that you check your child’s name is every single piece of clothing…sometimes pen washes out! Our first BRICS of this half term is this week, it’s based on fairy tales.  I’ll continue to take in and update reading books on a Thursday.

Thank you for your continued support and for making my first half term in Reception a really enjoyable one.  I am really looking forward to this half term!  This half term we are speaking with contractors and making plans for exciting new developments in our outside area…watch this space…and I’ll be asking for your opinions and ideas so get your thinking caps on! 


 Kind Regards,

Mrs Divall

Thank you for letting us know what the kids will be doing. It's really nice to know that the children will be learning about different cultures and the hardships that some people face.I will be interested in helping out if required in the future too.
