Reception Willow

Goldilocks and the Three Bears


Wow! What a fantastic first couple of weeks we have had in school! We are very pleased with how well the children have settled into our school life. 


Here are some photos of our classroom areas this week to give you an insight into our learning environment. This week, we have been learning about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have read the story, practised our letters in porridge oats, built the three bears' house, sorted items by size, created some brilliant Golidlocks art work and even made our own porridge! We have also enjoyed singing 'When Goldilocks Went to the House of the Bears' together and role playing the story in our role play area- phew, what a busy week!


Next week, we will be exploring the nursery rhyme 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' with a focus on light and dark and nocturnal animals. We will take plenty of photos of our learning so keep your eyes peeled on here to find out what we have been up to!

Welcome to Reception - Willow Class


A big warm welcome to everyone who has joined us at Slyne-with-Hest St. Luke's!


We are very much looking forward to getting to know the children and seeing them grow and develop throughout their time with us. We thought that it might be useful to provide a little information on here about what happens day-to-day in Reception. 



PE for Reception is on a Wednesday and Friday morning. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school and that their uniform is named, thank you.


Outdoor learning

We do go outside in all weathers, both as part of our class life and at school playtime. Please make sure that your child has a suitable coat for playing out, with a hood if possible.



Please try to make sure that children pass letters, forms, envelopes to us as they walk through the gate each morning. We will remind them to double check their book bags for any of these things when they put them away. 


Snack and water

Fruit is provided at morning playtime therefore the children do not need to bring a snack to school. Please ensure they bring a bottle of water each day and that this is clearly labelled with their name. They will have access to this throughout the day. 



Once the children are settled into school, they will be given reading books from our reading scheme and will begin daily phonics sessions. Don't worry, we will keep you updated with this!


In the meantime, should you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesistate to contact us, either at the school gate or via the contact form below.


Many thanks,

Mrs Waterhouse, Miss Hayton and Mrs Hole.
