Welcome to Reception!
Welcome to Reception.
We are happy that the children have come back from the Christmas holidays, happy and ready to start learning again.
We will be helping your child to achieve set targets in different areas of their learning, including;
Writing: To write simple words and sentences.
Maths: To work with numbers to 10; counting, number writing, matching numbers, adding and taking away. To explore and talk about 2D flat shapes and 3D solid shapes. We will also explore length, height, weight, capacity and time.
PSED: To talk about ourselves in positive terms and say what we are good at.
PE will take place every Friday. Your child will need to have a PE kit in school so they can get changed.
Your child will need:
· Plain white t-shirt
· Black jogging bottoms, leggings or shorts
· Black pumps or trainers
PLEASE LABEL ALL CLOTHING!!!
PLEASE REMOVE ALL JEWELLERY
We will continue to send home reading books every Friday. Please try to regularly read your child’s home reading book with them and talk to them about the stories. What did you like the best? What happened in the story? What happened at the beginning? middle? end?
Encourage you child to find familiar words and sounds.
We ask that you return your child's book bag on FRIDAY so that their books can be changed.
Stay and play sessions.
Look out for an invitation to your child’s stay and play session. You will receive a text message when it’s your child’s session. The classes will be taking it in turns. We would really appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you.
Your child will be working in an outdoor learning area everyday as part of the curriculum. Could you please send your child to school in appropriate clothing. Now the weather is turning colder, please ensure your child comes dressed in a warm coat and sensible shoes.
Every week, we will send home a ‘Proud Cloud’ for you to complete. This gives you a chance to let us know when your child has done something good at home and any next steps you think your child needs. Your views are really important to us and help towards your child's development.
