Welcome to Reception 

Dear Parents/ Carers,

It is hard to believe that the children have now completed their first half term with us at Belleville. It has been a wonderful start to the year and all five classes have settled extremely well.

Our topic for next half term is ‘Light and Dark’. You will find an overview of the themes for each week on the reverse of this sheet. As previously mentioned, this is a starting point for the topics that we might cover and will provide you with a guide as to what we will be learning about.

If you have any resources relevant to a particular theme, we would be most appreciative if your child could bring them into school to share with the class in the appropriate week.

We would also like to remind you about how much we value information from you about your child’s development and learning at home. Please complete our ‘Big News From Home’ slips and give them directly to your class teacher or nursery nurse – we will be more than happy to advise you about what to write if needed.

Towards the end of next term each Reception class will perform a Christmas play.  We will send out more information nearer the time, but for now please save the date as the children would love to see you all there.

Monday 11th December – 2:30pm – RB (Webbs)

Tuesday 12th December – 9:30am – RC (Webbs)

Tuesday 12th December – 2:30pm – RM (Meteor)

Wednesday 13th December – 2:30pm - RT (Webbs)

Thursday 14th December – 2:30pm – RAB (Meteor)

Finally, just a reminder about when the children have gym or dance and PE.  Please could you ensure that your child’s PE kit and bag has all items clearly named.  For morning PE lessons, children must come to school wearing their PE kit with their school clothes in their PE bag.  For afternoon PE lessons please bring send children in wearing their school clothes with their PE kit in a bag.  These children will change for their lesson in school and go home wearing their PE kit.  The PE days for each class are:                      

RM – Monday am

RAB – Monday am

RT – Tuesday am

RB – Wednesday am

RC – Thursday pm                               

Your class teacher is always on the playground at the start and end of each day so please do come and speak to us if you have any questions.

Many thanks
