Welcome to Reception Class RR
What a busy first half term we had!
The children have all come back to school happy and settled and are approaching their learning with an enthusiastic and positive attitude, which is fantastic!
This half term we start a new topic and with it comes lots of exciting activities...keep an eye on the photographs to see what we get up to.
We will also be taking part in the KS1 Nativity in December and we will be sending out more details nearer the time.
Thank you for all your help and support during the first half term. If you have any queries or concerns then please don't hesitate to
come and talk to us.
Miss Barrett and the Reception Team
Our topic this half term is 'Traditional Tales and Celebrations'. We will be celebrating winter festivals, including Bonfire Night and Christmas and we will be focussing on the following books; Room on the Broom, The Runaway Chapati, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Little Pigs. We have lots of exciting activities planned, both inside and outside, and we will also be taking part in Forest School activities (including a visit from the RSPB).
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.
We have also given each child a Phonics Book, which we update weekly with the new sounds we have been learning. Please practise these sounds regularly.
