WB-14.12.20 -This week we have had lots of Christmas fun. We have watched a fantastic Early Years panto, made Christingles and had a super fun Grinch day. Our next topic is- Can I switch it on? How does it work? We will explore these questions and more in this project about technology, toys and communication.

WB: 7.12.20


We have loved seeing all of the children's homework so far on J2E. Well done!

This week we have written letters to Santa and have found out what our cheeky elf has been up to!

We also really enjoyed practising our Nativity.

WB-23.11.20 - We have enjoyed exploring the story of 'Whatever Next'. We role-played the story thinking about what happened in the beginning, middle and end, we used our big voices to tell the story. We looked at the planets in our solar system and took part in a bubbling planet experiment.

WB- 16.11.20 We have created a whole parliament of owls this week while we have been learning about nocturnal animals. We also went out for a 'Road Safety' walk around the school site. During our 'Anti-bullying' discussion we talked about having kind words and kind hands. Next week we are reading the story Whatever Next and are going to pretend that we are off to the moon. The children will love designing and then building their own rocket and we are also doing a bubbling planet experiment.

WB- 9.11.20 This week in Reception we have learnt all about Remembrance. We made shadow soldiers and took part in the 2 minutes silence on Wednesday, adding our poppies to the school display. We have also celebrated Diwali and found out about different traditions. Next week we are looking forward to finding out about road safety and anti-bullying. Nocurnal animals will also be a focus.

Phonics Workshops for Reception Parents

In the Autumn term we run phonics workshops for parents and carers to find out more about the teaching of Phonics at Cheslyn Hay Primary School. The workshop outlines what phonics is, how it helps your child with their early reading and writing and provides a range of ideas for activities and resources you can use to support your child at home.  

Unfortunately, due to COVID 19, we can't run this workshop in person this year. Please see below links to our phonics support video, a PowerPoint and some resources that you might find useful for supporting your child at home. 

Any questions please do come and have a chat with us.
Thank you.

We are looking forward to our Early Years scarecrow challenge next week.

The 3 Bears are having tea! This week we have been learning about the number 3. We set the table for the 3 Bears!

In Reception we develop key learning skills, where all children are encouraged to develop at their own level, in a stimulating environment where learning is fun.

PE Days


We use PE session to develop both our physical skills and our personal interactions. 

Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.  

Home Learning


We encourage children to take part in the Early Years challenge of the week (this can be found in the EYFS foyer). In addition to this children have a weekly reading book and phonics activity to complete. 

We would love it if you could encourage children to use good manners, recognise and write (correct formation) their name, eat using a knife and fork correctly, recall counting and nursery rhymes and anything else that will help to make them well rounded little learners!
