Useful Information:


  • PE is on a Friday morning and Reception pupils should have PE kit on their peg in school. This is different to Years 1-6 as managing their personal needs (such as dressing) is part of the Early Years Curriculum. 

Learning at Home:

  • Pupils can use the online learning platforms Numbots, Oxford Owl and Education City. Usernames and passwords for these are found inside the front cover of your child's planner.

Autumn Term

Nativity Performance

The Reception children performed their fabulous nativity 'The Little Blue Star' for parents and carers this week. The children worked incredibly hard to learn all of their words and the songs off by heart. They spoke confidently with loud and clear voices and sang their little hearts out! The performances were a huge success and enjoyed by all.

Visiting the Story Bus

Our Reception pupils have thoroughly enjoyed the visits of the Leeds Library Service Story Bus this month. On board, the pupils enjoyed listening to stories, performing songs and reading the books on the bus.
