St Saviour's Church Schools


St Saviour's Reception presents: A Little Nativity!

Wow Reception, you've done a third of your Reception year in school already!!! Thank you to all of the children and parents for working with us to help your children make such amazing progress in their first few months at school! We look forward to seeing you after the holidays!

Term 2 Week 6 - Full of Christmas cheer! We have been doing dress rehearsals, talking about our family traditions and having exciting surprise visits with Santa's Grotto and snow and reindeers!!!

Christmas Nativity


Please remember to bring your costumes in by the end of next week for our Nativity!

If you could send them in in a named carrier bag, that would be very helpful!



Term 2 Week 5 - The Christmas countdown begins!

Term 2 Week 3 - Some of the things we have been thinking about this week are; how we are all unique, darkness and light, nocturnal animals and number questions to 6.

Our term 2 topic is: CELEBRATIONS


So far we have been learning about darkness and light, and how some people celebrate Bonfire Night and Diwali.

Use our word banks to discuss these celebrations with your child:





If you are having trouble logging onto Bug Club to access the phonics games, videos and books; try having a look at the troubleshooting link below:


Downloading Google Chrome on a smart device may help. But please let us know if you're still having trouble!

The Reception Team hope that you all enjoy the half term break!


During your time away from school, please still enjoy sharing books together! You each had 2 books for the holidays and have lots and lots of videos/games/books on Bug Club (See your Yellow Reading Record for your password).


You have also been given some phonics games to play. The children can tell you how to make a Metal Mike Robot using a cereal box and by cutting out a mouth. You can then feed the robot by posting post-its/chopped up paper in his mouth. He likes to eat pictures or words when you say the sounds like a robot!


We have been practising our name writing this term - Check if your child can write their own name with the correct letter formation. They may still need some help and practise at some letters!


Please also send in any WOW Stars for amazing learning over the holidays, the children love to share them with their class! 



*Please see below for information about reading books, Bug Club games and our Parent Workshop video that you need to watch online.*

Term 1 Week 7 - This week we have been exploring numbers to 5, learning the letters g, o, c & k and talking about The Caring Code and how we can be our best selves... amongst all sorts of other things!

Reading Books


On Monday we will begin sending home the first set of reading books that contain the letters s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d. Your children have started reading and writing 2 and 3 letter words using these letters! In your book bags this weekend you will have a word and picture activity to help you both practise sounding out and blending the words, and matching them to the correct picture. Please practise this with your child over the weekend so they are ready for their reading books on Monday!


You can also now log onto Bug Club on using your username and passwords found on the Yellow Reading Records! There are 31 videos, games and reading books to begin using!

**If you haven't yet watched the Parent Workshop video, please take a look. It's 30 minutes and explains all about this.**
