Reception's Timetable


Important Information:

Reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday.

A comprehension task or a word task will be sent home along with the book.  

Reading books are books to share at home.  School will work on decoding strategies and other reading skills through Guided Reading, 1:1 reading and shared reading.

To get a new reading book - your child should put their book bag in the red box. 


PE kits need to be in school every week.  Our PE day is Tuesday.

Water bottles should only contain WATER.

Please ensure that ALL of your child's belongings have their name on. 



Please bring a spare pair of wellingtons into school.




We encourage you to share lots of books with your child. 

Can your child pick out any of their keywords?  

Talk about the characters - what are they like? How are they feeling at different points in the story?

What does your child think might happen next and why?

Talk to your child about their favourite part of the story and why they liked it.  


Please also practise the sets of words that come home in your child's reading bag.  As soon as they can recognise the strip of words in a random order, they get to bring the next set home.  

Once your child has started to recognise the words, please start to practise spelling these words at home so that they can begin to use them in their independent writing.
