Reception

Preparing for Year 1

 

Please can you help your child at home to practise their writing their name (letters correctly formed), their letter sounds, number formation to 10 - addition and subtraction. Can you also encourage your child to become more independent e.g. dressing themselves, putting on their coat on and zip it up, feeding themselves, attending to their toileting needs, looking after their own belongings. These are all skills that will support your child when they are in Year 1.  

Collins ebooks

 

We have started to use Collins ebooks to set reading books which are appropriate to your individual child's reading ability. All children have been provided with their own login username and password to access their account and view the reading books set by their class teachers every Friday. Support your child to read the ebook at home, using their phonic knowledge and ask them questions about the story! 

 

If you require a copy of your child's login details please contact their Reception class teacher who will be able to provide this. 

Please make sure you read with your child every week. The class teachers can view who has been reading their ebook and will be rewarding the children for this!  

Reading for pleasure

 

Every Friday the children select a book of their choosing to take home and read for their pleasure. They are allowed to keep these books for one full week and should be returned the following Friday; in order to receive a new book. Your child also has a reading record which tells you the name of the book and allows you to add any comments. If your child has not received a new book please speak to their class teacher.  

We have started using a new Phonics programme called Little Wandle across the school. The children are doing a fantastic job at recognising phonemes, tricky words and using their phonics to blend sounds together to read words and sentences!

 

Listed below are some documents to help you practise Phonics at home with your child. Please use the letter formation rhymes to support the children to form the letter sounds correctly.

Welcome to Reception!

 

Hello everyone and welcome back! We are so excited to meet you all again and to start a wonderful year together in Reception. This half term we will be focusing on helping the Reception children to settle into their new classrooms and routines, getting to know their new teachers and friends and exploring their environment.

 

We look forward to learning, laughter and lots of fun in our journey together in Reception!
