Homelinks Reception

Week beginning: 16/07/18

Our Topic this week will be

Child-Led/Free choice


Please could we ask that all parents/carers complete the reply slip that was included in your child’s report so we are aware that you have received and read through your child’s report. Any additional comments would be really appreciated by us too. Thank you.

Reading books

As you may have noticed we have started to collect reading books and not issued children with another one in the final week of the school year. If you still have a reading book at home that belongs to school, could we please ask that you bring it back in to us ASAP. Thank you.


Please do also remember that reading is very important for children at such a young age and will support them in all areas of their learning in their early life. It is important that children still have access at home to reading materials (books, children’s magazines, comics etc.) that they enjoy to read by themselves or to be read to by you or listened too over the summer period.

Thursday 19th July

As this Thursday will be the last full day your child is at school with us, Early Years have organised a ‘Wear something crazy’ day for all the children in Early Years. This means your child can come to school wearing odd socks, odd shoes, clothing on back to front, one arm rolled up and one arm rolled down or crazy hair. Whatever you would like, but crazier the better! We will then have a day full of fun and games including playing parachute games, party games etc.

Last day

The last day of the school year for children will be this Friday (Friday 20th). School will finish earlier than usual at 1:15pm. Please collect your child at this time. They would have been provided with a lunch at school, unless you have provided a packed lunch for your child, which they will have just before finishing time. If you have a child at main school, we will be happy to release your child from 1pm onwards or you may collect your child after collecting your other children from main school. Please do what is easier for you. Thank you.

Thank you

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our parents/carers this year for your continued support and hard work. It has been an absolute wonderful pleasure working with you all and to have taught your child for their first school year. We ae extremely proud of how far each one of them have come along in their journey and I wish them all the best for Year One and bright futures ahead. Thank you again. Ms Anwar
