Art Day in Reception

Next Friday is Art Day! Children can come dressed down in clothes you do not mind getting a little mucky, or they could come ‘dressed to express’ and have an art themed outfit.

In Reception, we are going to be collaborating to create a large joint piece of work and in line with the rest of the school the theme is about reusing materials.

To support with this we would appreciate if, over the next week, you could send in any of the following materials you may have finished with:

Cake cases
Foil wrappers e./g chocolate or cereal bars
Cereal boxes or similar
Plastic bags

Please can we only have these items if they are still relatively clean so they can be used to create a large collage.
If you bring them to class, we can take them off your hands and store them ready for Friday.


In addition to this, KS2 are still looking to have enough tetra packs to complete an activity on Art Day too, so if you have any then please do send them in. Tetra packs are cartons (see image) that you may use at home. It will say whether they are tetrapacks on the side of the carton. We are happy to take these and pass them on too.

Many thanks
The Reception Team :)

Reception French Day Information

On Friday 5th July there will be a whole school French day for pupils from Nursery to Year 6.


Pupils can come into school dressed in red, white and blue or even create a costume inspired by a famous French landmark. Please participate as low-key as you would like (e.g reuse your white tops from our recent Macmillan event, or through hair ribbons etc.)

Throughout the day there will be various activities for the children to participate in, including our very own Reception ‘tour de France’ and learning the cancan dance! 😊 We will of course learn a little basic French in class too.


There will also be the option to have a French themed dinner which consists of quiche, ratatouille, and chocolate mousse, alongside the normal fish and chips which will be served.

If you would like to make a voluntary contribution of £2.00 to support the resources on the day, please log into parent pay.


Thank you for your continued support.

EYFS Macmillan Event Information

You will have seen the letter sent out recently regarding ‘Climb Against Cancer: Newdale walk up the Wrekin to raise money for Macmillan’, with details of how you can support this cause through sponsorship on our justgiving page.

On Tuesday 25th June, our very youngest pupils in Nursery and Reception will be taking part in a sponsored walk along a specially planned route around the school grounds. They will use our sports pitches and the play areas to form the shape of a heart to symbolise the love and support we all feel towards those affected by cancer, followed by ten laps around the sports pitch!

In line with the rest of the school, we would like children to come dressed in the chosen colours to represent the event.

Please can children come dressed in:



We do have a small amount of school sports bibs should anyone need support.

We look forward to EYFS taking part and will be sure to share lots of photographs. Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome Back Reception

We look forward to welcoming everyone back for the final term of the year!

We can’t believe how fast this year is going and how much progress everyone has made. 🙂 We hope you have all had an amazing Easter break.

Some amendments to our timetable are as follows:

PE days are now Monday and Tuesday. Please come in Newdale PE kits on these days.
Forest school will now be on a Thursday afternoon. Please bring forest kits and wellies in a seperate kit bag on this day.

See you bright and early tomorrow to hear about your break.

The Reception Team.

Happy New Year Reception!

Happy New Year!
We hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas break and new year celebrations.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back on Monday to start our exciting new topic (details of this will be stuck in diaries next week).
A reminder that we have a special show and tell session on Monday afternoon, so you are invited to bring in one toy, clearly named to show and tell to your classmates. Please avoid electronics and toys with small parts as we would hate for anything to get lost or broken.

PE days for Spring are now Thursday and Friday, so please dress in PE kit on these days.
Forest school continues to be Wednesday, so please bring kit in to change into on this day.

See you all soon! The Reception team.

Reception Royal Banquet

Castle Banquet DRESS-UP

On THURSDAY 19th October, we will be holding a special Castle Banquet to celebrate the fantastic work the children have been doing on Castles.

Please can your child bring in a change of clothes to wear to celebrate the Castle Banquet. The children will come to school in their normal clothes and will get changed after their lunch. It can either be a costume they already have at home ( e.g A King, Knight, Princess, Queen,  dragon, etc) or some party clothes.

We will make sure we take lots of photos to share with you all.

Many Thanks.

The Reception Team.
