Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School

Year R NB

Welcome to YR NB


Our class teacher is Miss Barranca and our teaching assistants are Mrs Kertland and Mrs Simmonds. In addition, Mrs Crockett teaches our class on a Wednesday morning taking the children out to Forest School.  


In Reception, the rules and expectations are built around the core values of our school. 


We have also created our own class promises showing behaviour expectations and how to create a happy classroom.  


PE and kit information  

Our PE day is on a Wednesday.  Please can the children come to school in their PE kits on Wednesday.   

Your child will already be in PE/ forest school clothes so will not need to bring anything else in.   

The PE kit is as follow:  

Navy shorts, white polo shirt, white socks, navy joggers, navy jumper and trainers.  


Welly Wednesday  

Every Wednesday the children will be going to forest school in the morning. Children need to come into school in their own clothes full-length leggings/ trousers. Forest school can be muddy and wet so please bring them in clothes that can get a bit messy. On forest school days it is important children have got coats as we like to go out whatever the weather. A pair of welly boots should remain in school.  



Children's reading books will be changed at the beginning of the week. As the children begin to blend sounds learned in phonics, we will send out one reading scheme book a week. Please share these books throughout the week to allow children to familiarise themselves with newly learnt sounds and high-frequency words. Every time we learn a new sound in phonics your child will have a flashcard and Pocket Rocket sent home in their ‘Phonics Pouch’. Please continue to practise their sounds and share the Pocket Rockets to continue to develop your child’s blending skills and recognition of sounds.



Each week Phonics & Maths home learning will be shared via Seesaw. This will support you and your child with the sounds & tricky words we have focused on in Phonics and the concepts looked at in Maths. Please take time over the weekend and following week to practise the sounds, letter formation and words. 


Unlocking learning  

All children will have a Bug Club login and this resource can be used at home to encourage more reading. These websites could also be used at home to support learning.
