                  Please see the section below if you need information about Home Learning.


We welcome our children into Lakeside Primary School and look forward to getting to know them. We will spend some time this half term settling the children, establishing routines and ensuring they are happy. The Reception school day begins at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. For drop off and pick up arrangements, and further information about the school, please read the Parent Handbook on the parent page.

Also visit our twitter page for regular updates, photos and reminders.

Please could your child bring a plastic bottle full of water and fruit or vegetables for snack. If they bring small fruit such as grapes or cherry tomatoes, please could these be chopped in half. Please NO NUTS. This includes any foods that contain nuts such as peanut butter, nutella etc. 


Physical Development

Every Monday Reception will have a PE lesson, either outside or in the hall. Please can your child come to school in their PE kit (from Monday 13th September) so that they do not have to change in school. (Black or navy shorts /joggers/leggings , t-shirt/school polo top, school jumper/cardigan and trainers.)



Reading books will be sent home with guidance on how to support your child with their reading. We will also assign books to their Bug Club online library. Homework will be set on seesaw. This is where teachers set work digitally for the children to complete on a device at home, which can then be sent back for the teachers to respond to. 


Context for Learning:

 Further information on Bug Club.

The children will be using an online reading resource called Bug Club.

Please help your child to read the books allocated to them on active learn.

Remember, at the end of the book there are questions for your child to complete. To answer a question, just click on the bug icon. 

When your child has finished all the quiz questions in a book, they will earn 'Active Learn Coins'. By reading more books, your child will earn enough coins to 'buy' a reward in one of the many reward schemes. The answers to the quiz questions will be sent back to our teacher site so that we can see how your child is progressing. Thank you.


How to help your child this half term:

Talk to your child about their day in school. Share stories every day at home. Encourage your child to dress themselves each morning. Encourage your child to wait their turn to talk and answer questions clearly. Help your child with their reading book and key words. Log onto Bug Club so your child can read the online books allocated to them.


Home Learning

There is a home learning planner with the main activities at the top of the Reception page. It shows the main activities that we will be covering each week. It only needs to be referred to if your child is unable to come to school, for example, in the event that they need to self isolate. 

Success stars: Next to some activities you may see * (1 star)  ** (2 star) *** (3 star)  This is so your child can work at the best level to suits them.
