1st Spring Term 2020

We had a fabulous Autumn term in Reception and and we are now very excited for the Spring term! We have a fun-filled term ahead of us as we explore, play and learn.


Please make sure that all clothing is practical and easy for your child to manage.  All clothes MUST be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Please provide your child with a pair of wellies that can be kept in school. Wellies will be required for daily outdoor learning.


At Hollin, we encourage reading for pleasure and the enjoyment of books. Your child will bring home a book that they can share with you each day. Please take this opportunity to sit and enjoy a story with your child.

Children in Reception can change their book as often as they like. All we ask is that their reading record is signed by an adult to help us identify when your child has finished a book.

Additionally, your child has their own ‘Sound bag’ that is to be kept in their book bags. As we learn new sounds at school, these will be added to the bag for further consolidation at home.

Class fund

Contributions of 50p per week to our class fund are gratefully received. This goes towards the cost of providing extra resources for activities such as cooking, making play-dough and special snacks on a Friday.


Alongside the daily physical development activities in Reception, we have a weekly PE session with Mr Vyse on a Thursday.


If you wish to celebrate your child’s birthday by sending treats to share with the other children, we are asking that instead of sweet treats, you consider sending a ‘Birthday Book’….a book of your choice that can be shared with the class and then added to the class book area.
