Reception Newsletter January 2019

 This 1/2 term our topic is ’Animals – now and then’

During this topic we will be finding out about the wide variety of animals that share our planet now and the dinosaurs that lived years ago.

We will be learning the difference between wild and domesticated animals. We will also be looking at the different habitats that they live in and the different ways that they move – through flight, swimming, crawling and slithering.  

We will also be learning about prehistoric animals, how they were different to modern animals, how they became extinct and how palaeontologists use fossils to learn about them.


As usual we need your help

  • If you have a pet at home, it would be wonderful if you could send in a photograph and encourage your child to write about their pet. This will be share with the rest of the class and used on a display. (Photographs will be returned)
  • Share books and TV programmes about animals and dinosaurs with your children. Talk to them about what they know and what they would like to find out about, maybe using non-fiction books or the internet to help them answer their own questions.


A couple of quick reminders:


* Please make sure your child has an appropriate coat and footwear in school every day. It is the coldest time of the year and we play outside every day.

* Please make sure your child’s name is on their clothes – especially hats, scarves, gloves and jumpers. We have lots of jumpers and cardigans in lost property from last term already!

* This term we will be starting a ‘Polkadots’ after school club which focuses on music and singing. Places are limited but we will be running it each term so lots of children should get a chance by the end of the year. Full details will be on a separate letter.

As usual, thanks for your support – Emma, Mandy, Martin, Rena & Harvinder
