Welcome to Reception Class RH
The children have settled in well to the new term and are embracing our new topic with great enthusiasm! They are particularly enjoying our role play post office and the outdoor, space themed role play. All the children have gained so much confidence over the last term and are now familiar and settled with the routines of school. Your child will have started to bring home a reading scheme book each week and should be beginning to 'sound out' the letters and blend them together to read the words. A great achievement! You should also be seeing more independence in their writing as they begin to use the sounds they know to write words and sentences. Please continue to practise this at home as the more they practise, the more confident readers and writers they will become!
As the weather is rather cold this term, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately with a warm coat, hat and gloves as we will continue to free flow using the outdoor area in all weathers.
If you have any queries or concerns then please don't hesitate to come and talk to us.
& The Reception Team
Our topic this half term is ‘We’re Going on a Journey’.
We will be travelling into space with the books Whatever Next by Jill Murphy and The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers, and going on a Bear Hunt with Michael Rosen in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. We have lots of exciting activities planned around these stories both inside and outside. We will be writing letters and postcards in our role play post office and celebrating Chinese New Year as well as our regular Forest School activities. Please see our topic web for more information and let us know if you can contribute to our topic in any way.
Don't forget check this page regularly for photographs and updates!
