Our PE days in Reception are: 

Tuesday and Friday

Please bring PE kit into school for the children to change into. These should be brought in at the beginning of the week and will be sent home on Friday. REMEMBER no laces please!!


Please remember to give your child a water bottle so they have access to water throughout the school day. We kindly ask that you contribute £1 a week towards snack for the class. We are a healthy school so all our snacks are healthy! We have a variety of fruit each week to choose from! 





Our zones of Regulation

We are using our zones of regulation to help us understand our feelings and how we can learn to manage those feelings at school. 

Autumn Term - this term, our inquiries have been based on some exciting stories!

We have been looking at our local community heros and had a great visit to Butetown community centre! We searched for signs of Autumn, and we are currently working on our Literacy inquiry all about Traditional tales! Here are some of the books we have enjoyed so far!
