Welcome back to the Summer Term! It hardly seems possible that Reception are entering their final term of their first year at school. It doesn’t seem long ago that they started their journey at Combe Primary School!

This term our Big Question is “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Do you?” We have already started to explore what seaside holidays were like in the past, having been inspired by a workshop led by Sonja from Oxfordshire Heritage Museums. We are discovering something of what life used to be like in Victorian times and have learnt about Queen Victoria herself…did you know she had 9 children and 40 grandchildren? The children were amazed!

The Year One children continue to work alongside their peers for their daily Phonics lessons and also join them for their PE , RE, ICT, PSHE and a lovely Continuous Provision session each week. PE sessions this term take place on a Monday and Wednesday.

Homework is set on a Friday and all children are encouraged to read 5 times a week.

Show and Tell continues to take place on alternative Friday mornings for each group and Reception children enjoy their sessions of Relax Kids with Mrs Martin in the afternoon.

We are looking forward to a great term of learning and as always thank you for all your hard work and support.
