Welcome to our EYFS class page at St Cuthbert's Catholic Primary School.
Please do visit our class pages regularly for information regarding Reception and to see what we get up to in the classroom!
In Reception we love learning new things each day. We really enjoy learning through our play with each other.
"Play is the highest form of research"
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday this term. PE kits must be kept in school all week, in case of any changes.
Please ensure children's PE kits are packed with the following:
- White ankle socks
- Tracksuit bottoms
- PE jumper
- White polo shirt
Home Learning will be set on a Friday and must be completed and returned by the following Thursday. Home Learning will usually be set on the Reception Newsletter, unless otherwise stated (sometimes paper Home Learning may be sent home for specific tasks). Completed Home Learning can be shared as a photograph, video, a scanned document or a response using Tapestry observations.
Home Learning will usually be based on topics we are talking about in school that week and are talk based.
Reading folders will reflect Home Learning days. Reading folders will be sent home on a Thursday and must be returned on a Tuesday. Reading folders are collected first thing on a Tuesday morning, to be 'quarantined' and changed on a Thursday. Any reading folders handed in after Tuesday will not be changed until the following week.
In reception all equipment is provided in our classroom. The children do not need to bring any equipment from home.
We take our learning outdoors regularly, so children need to be prepared to learn outdoors in all weathers:
- A waterproof coat
- Hat, gloves, scarf
- Suncream in the warmer months
- Wellies (These are kept at school on our welly rack)
Please can your child also bring a named water bottle daily, a morning fruit snack and an optional afternoon snack.
