Reception - Oak and Ash 2020 - 2021
Welcome To Reception
This page is for all our reception children in Ash and Oak class. We will use this page to share information with you and also tell you what we have been doing each week. We will also share ideas for activities you can do at home to support your learning.
Ideas for Supporting your child at home
We use an online learning journey in school called Tapestry. This can also be used at home to share any photos or any activities you have done. You should have been sent an activation email, once you have activated your account you are ready to use. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you are having any problems activating your account or if you have not received an email.

Arrangements for the start and end of the school day
In order to limit the number of people in the areas outside of school and in the playground and keep keep you, your parents and school staff safe, we are having staggered start and end times.
Ash class will start at 8.40am and come into school via their outside classroom door and then leave the same way at 3.05pm. Oak class will start at 8.50am and come into school via their outside classroom door and then leave the same way at 3.15pm. We will have notices on the doors and in the playgroud to show you where to go.
What you need to bring each day
Everyday you will need to bring a coat (we spend lots of time outside), your school book bag and a named water bottle (no juice please). If you are having a school lunch we ask that disposable packaging is used at this time.
Ash Class will need to come to school wearing PE kits on Fridays.
Oak Class will need to come to school wearing PE kits on Wednesdays.
Current topic - Starry Nights
In the Starry Night project, your child will explore the differences between the world at night time compared with daytime, through a range of exciting and creative activities. They will find out about nocturnal animals and how they find food when it is dark. They will find out about people who work at night and the different jobs that people do when we are asleep. They will discuss bedtime routines and the importance of a good night’s sleep. They will explore the night sky and find out about the Moon and stars.
Supporting your child at home
- Look at the night sky and see how many stars you can see each night.
- See how the Moon changes shape each night.
- Go on a short walk after dark or go into the garden. Take a torch to light the way. Discuss how things look different in the dark.
Words to use and explore:
- night time
