 Hello Reception! 


This year has flown by!  I have really enjoyed being your class teacher and getting to know all of you. 

This week, I have attached lots of fun activities for you to try. These include some transitioning and PSHE activities for you to try as you prepare for Year 1.

For those who wish to carry on with their Phonics and Maths, I have included some activities for these as well.  

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Summer holiday and all the best as you enter Year One. 

Take care always, Miss Angliss. 


Welcome to Reception.

From Monday 29th June, we are so excited because the children that were in Rainbow and Dream Bubbles are coming back together as the Reception Rainbow Bubble.  This will be with Miss Angliss and Mrs. S. Wilson.  Please come to the usual Reception entrance to drop off and collect your child. Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday. 

Can't you sleep Little Bear?

Half Term Activities

Here is a list of activities that you may like to try over the Half-term holiday.

Have fun and stay safe, Miss Angliss 


Supporting documents for this week (18th May) can be found below the following text.

You can now find a phonics resource page on our school website: https://www.st-matthewsbloxam.co.uk/phonics/ 

This contains key vocabulary, a video on how to say each of the sounds, and some activities.  Please check it out.

The school maths scheme (Power Maths) have created a Summer Term addition of the resources we use in class. When we return to school, our plan is to use this block of learning as they have condensed all the work down into 10 weeks, which will ensure children are prepared for next year. I am sharing this with you as you might like to start accessing the learning. You will need to agree to the terms and conditions first, then click on the Power Maths Year 0 icon. This will take you to the Power Maths Year 0 book. The book is designed to be followed in order.

Scroll down for more links to websites. 

Hello Reception,


I hope you are all keeping safe and well. During the Easter holidays, Miss Angliss has been enjoying some walks in the gorgeous sunshine. It has been rather warm!  I have also been gardening at home, baking new recipes, and of course household chores. 

What have you been up to this week?


If you would like to share what you have been up to, go to SMB Noticeboard and search for 'SMB Reception Connect Group'. Please continue to send in pictures, videos, and messages. It definitely puts a smile on our faces and we are sure it's nice for all the other children to see too! If you are not on Facebook, then you can email admin3213@welearn365.com and write Reception in the subject box. 


Take care,

Miss Angliss
