Thanks for FUDGE!

We would like to thank all the fathers/uncles/grandads/everyone who attended our FUDGE event today. The session started with the book: “Fix-it Duck” and then everybody had the opportunity to participate in fun activities, based on the book. We had a real dvd player to unscrew and fix, tool boxes to make, cars to build, tree houses to create, walls to build, shapes to hammer, tools to cut and stick, play dough to create tools with and we have been building using marble run, lego and other construction. What a great morning! It’s fun to read and work together!!!!


This is the Year of Reading at Bearwood Primary School. As part of our celebrations, this Friday (27th September 2013) we are holding a FUDGE event in Reception. All Fathers, Uncles, Dads and Grandads are invited to come and share a story with their child. This will then be followed by a fun activity for you and your child to complete together. We want to show children that it’s cool for men and boys to read together. We cannot wait to see you all there!!!

Phonics Session

Thank you to all parents who attended our Phonics Workshop. It was great to see you all there. Please continue to work with your child on the phonic sounds (letter sounds) and once they are confident with these, then please begin to blend simple words with them; f-a-n fan, h-a-t hat, p-u-t put etc. Your support is vital to your childs progress.


Phonics are really important at our school.  They underpin children’s reading and writing in the early years.  Therefore, we expect all parents to fully support us with phonics at home.  This is a short video that explains what phonics are (the letter sounds) and how we use them to read phonetical words.  This shall be explained further at our phonics workshop next week.

Phonics Workshop

Our phonics workshop is next week.  It is vital that all parents attend.  It will give you the opportunity to watch a phonics lesson and we will also discuss how you can support your child at home.  The dates for these are as follows:

Class RA – Monday 23rd September 2013 – 9am

Class RH – Tuesday 24th September 2013 – 9am

See you there!!!!!

Keep in touch…

Don’t forget you can email the Reception team at any time.  We would love to have photo’s of your child’s achievements sent to us, or any general information/queries you could like to share with us.  Our email address is as follows:

We can’t wait to hear from you and these snippets of information will also be used to show your child’s achievments outside of school (and therefore added to their Learning Journal).

Welcome to the new Reception family!

The children have made a fantastic start to their Reception year.  They have all settled in really well, and are getting used to their new school routines.  Thank you to all parents for ensuring your child has arrived at school on time every day, and for your support with their transition to Reception.  We know this is going to be a fun filled and exciting year, and we cannot wait to share it all with you.  Welcome to the Bearwood Reception Family!!!
