Reception Classes had a great trip to the local allotments this week. Thank you so much to all the parents and adults who came along with us. Your support and enthusiasm was very much appreciated.

ALL children should have spare, named clothes hanging permanently on their coat peg as well as having their water bottle in school every day. With warmer weather approaching, sun hats and a named tube of sunscreen, too!

Thank you for your help with this.

Welcome to a New Year and we hope that you had a restful and enjoyable Christmas break.

Reception children at Fawcett have made a great start to the new term. 

This week the children have:

  • Started thinking about themes linked with our topic 'On the Move'.
  • Listened to and joined in with the text 'The Train Ride' as a springboard to further work in class.
  • Learned about tally charts and how to create their own.
  • Learned the phonemes 'ee' (see, need, bee) and 'ai' (rain, again, pain) and the tricky word 'put'.
  • Started the great outdoors adventure that is Forest School.

Please remember that your child should have a named PE kit hanging on their peg for the whole of the term. PE is every Wednesday.

Your child should bring their book bag to school every day, especially on Friday, which is book-changing day.

Forest School takes place every Tuesday, alternating between Clare Class one week, Queens' Class the next. All children must come to school with warm clothing and have their wellington boots in school.

There are new dates available for our Mystery Reader slots on a Friday. If you have not yet been in to class to read a favourite book, please do sign up.

Enjoy your weekend!

The Reception Team.

Thanks to all those that were able to attend the Winter Maths Cafe in November. We have uploaded the photos into the file 'Winter Maths Cafe' on the tab to the right. Please take a look with your child. We all had a lovely morning! We have attached the 'Maths at Home' sheet at the bottom of this page for those parents that were unable to make the session. 

The children all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch on Thursday, served by Year Six pupils. 

We all enjoyed wearing and admiring others' Christmas jumpers on Friday. 
For our weekly update, please see below.

Thank you to everyone who to came to watch the Reception Christmas Concert.  The children did remarkably well learning new songs and performing to an audience. We are extremely proud of them and we hope you are too.

This week we have learned phonemes U and L

In maths we learned about length

Number of the week: 10

Read 'The Nativity' and talked about how we celebrate Christmas

While Fawcett School was cold and closed to pupils, the Reception Team stayed warm by doing lots of useful things. We now have a lovely new music wall and a water wall which will be ready to use, soon. We have also had a spring clean of our large construction area and our Mud Kitchen area.


Week ending 23rd November 2018

A reminder:  Maths Cafe Stay and Play at Fawcett on the morning of Tuesday 20th November and at Trumpington Meadows on Monday 26th November. All Parents and Carers welcome at either session.

A call-out:  Parent volunteers wanted! We would like to start our Forest School program, but in order for this to happen we need 1-2 parent helpers per session.  If you like the outdoors and are willing to help out on a regular basis (every Tuesday afternoon 1 - 3) please contact Ms Jannoch in Clare Class.
