Reception Newsletter September 2019


Welcome to a new school year.

Emma (Mrs Brayshaw), Mandy (Miss Ward), Martin (Mr Fuller), Rena (Mrs Landell) and Harvinder (Miss Kaur) hope you all had a good summer break and are ready to support us to help your children to work hard, have fun and achieve academically and socially during the coming year.


This half term our topic is called Superhero Me!


During this half term, we will spend a great deal of time talking about our similarities and differences. We will be finding out how SUPER unique we all are. We will be talking to the children about the SUPER skills they already possess and what they need to do to make their SUPER skills into SUPER powers! We will also be finding out about real SUPERheros, such as doctors, nurses, fire-fighters, etc.


Where in the World

We believe that our family histories need to be celebrated and shared with others, so during this half term we will be talking to the children about themselves and their families. To make this learning opportunity successful we need your help, talk to your children about you – what you do, where you come from, let them know about your history, cultural and religious background. I am sure you will be surprised by how interested they are. By the end of the half term we hope to have designed a display that acknowledges the diversity we have within the classes.


A few quick reminders


Reading books please make sure you listen to your child read each night. Talk about the pictures, practise any letters/words that are sent home and please make comments in the reading log and send their book back into school each day.


Outdoor play - please make sure your child has suitable clothing, waterproof coat, wellingtons, sunhat, gloves, etc.  We go outside every day rain or shine.

Please remember to put names in all clothes, shoes, bags, lunch boxes, etc.



Homework – children will have a daily homework sheet for the first few weeks of the term that supports the letter and sound they are learning in phonics each day. These do not take long to do and will reinforce their learning. It would be great to have your support in this as it is the foundation of starting to read and write. Towards the end of this half-term, we will change and adapt the homework depending on how the children are progressing and communicate this to you.


Attendance and Punctuality – if your child is not in school on time or off school altogether they miss out on so much learning – please make sure your child is in school, on time, every day. 

Tapestry online learning journey- There will be a meeting on Friday 13th September for parents at 8.45 to give guidance on how to use our online learning journey. This will be something that you can use at home and see what your child has been learning about in school. This meeting is very important to those children who are new to Ashbury Meadow.


Looking forward to working with you over the coming year!



  Children celebrating their 5th birthday this half term are:  

  Balasubramanian, Olivia, Priscilla, Harley, Dipo, Lottie, Ameerah, Bobby.


A big happy birthday to you all.
