Welcome to Reception Class RR
Happy New Year!
The children have settled back into school well and are cheerful and raring to go. They are already very excited by our new topic and are loving the Post Office Role Play - we have lots of potential Post People in our class.
Please keep looking at the website to see photos of us in action.
The children now have a reading scheme book and can use it to practise reading both decodable and tricky words. I can't stress enough how important it is to read with your child at home as often as possible, this extra practice really does help their reading improve.
If you have any queries or concerns then please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Barrett and the Reception Team
This half term our topic is ‘We’re Going on a Journey’ and we will be travelling into space and hunting for bears with the books ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy, ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers and ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen.
We will also be learning about Chinese New Year and will continue to have our weekly Forest School sessions.
Please see our curriculum overview for more information and check this page regularly for photographs of us in action.
Our P.E. lessons will take place every Wednesday and Friday.
Please make sure your child has the correct, labelled P.E. kit in school and earrings are removed.
Homework / Reading at home
Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday.
Please read with your child at home at least 3 times a week (daily if possible) and write a comment in their reading diary. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further. Reading books and Reading Diaries must come to school every day as we read with different children on different days.
We will continue to update the Phonics Books weekly with the new sounds we have been learning. Please practise these sounds regularly.
