Reception – Term 6, Week 7

This is our final blog post this academic year! We’ve loved teaching the children throughout their Reception year. We hope you all have a wonderful summer holiday and we can’t wait to see you again in September. 


  • Please check through lost property before the end of the summer term to retrieve any items that belong to you or your child.
  • You should have received the final part of your child’s learning diary via Tapestry, as well as their written school report. Please share this with your child and celebrate the learning they have done this year. 
  • Please return all books that belong to school before the summer holiday.
  • Summer Reading Challenge – Children are invited to join in the Bristol Libraries Summer Reading Challenge. Please see information in this week’s bulletin for more information or: Please bring in your medal (named) on Friday 8th September so that we can celebrate your summer reading achievements.  We’re also setting a ‘Get Caught Summer Reading’ challenge for all children. Please bring in a photo of you enjoying reading with anything, or anywhere that feels like summer to you!
