Welcome to Reception Class RR
Welcome back, we hope you had a relaxing break. The children have settled back into school really well, especially considering the change of classroom. Thank you for bearing with us during these temporary changes.
This half term we will be starting another new topic – Growing! The children are very excited and cannot wait to start planting.
Please continue to read your child’s reading scheme book and practise the sounds/words in the phonics book. I cannot 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.
Our topic this half term will be ‘Growing’. We will be growing some vegetables and plants as well as looking at how we grow and change. Our focus books will be Jack and the Beanstalk, Jasper’s Beanstalk, Titch, 3 Billy Goats Gruff and a non-fiction text about growing.
We will also be celebrating World Book Day and Science Week 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.
