Cycle 4

Cycle 4

The children in Reception have worked extremely hard during Cycle 3. We have just started Cycle 4 and are excited about all of the learning that will take place.


  • Reception’s Key Texts this cycle are Billy’s Bucket by Kes Gray and Garry Parsons and The Train Ride by June Crebbin and Stephen Lambert.
  • Reading at home

Please continue to listen to your child read their reading book every night. Ask your child questions about their book to check their understanding of what they have read. Please help them to practise the highlighted words on the sheet at the front, every night.  The last book change for this academic year will be on 11thJuly.

We are continuing to work hard in RWI lessons to segment and blend to read and write words and short sentences.

In Maths, children are learning how to double and halve numbers and to describe properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

Snack Money
We ask that the children continue to bring in 50p every week, on a Monday, to contribute towards the cost of providing the children with a range of healthy snacks.


Please be reminded that the school doors open at 8:50am and maths lessons commence at 9am prompt.  It is important your child arrives to school on time to ensure valuable learning is not missed.


Please ensure your child has spare clothes and underwear as there may be times when your child gets wet during outdoor play.  As the weather is getting warmer we would appreciate your child coming to school with sun cream already applied so they are able to learn in the outdoors immediately. A sun hat and spare sun cream which can be kept in school with your child’s name on is also recommended.


Please ensure all clothing is labelled clearly with your child’s name. We are still noticing a number of jumpers and cardigans with no name.
