All Around Us
Last terms topic Superheroes!
Last term we learnt about Traditional tales including; Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three little pigs.
Some of the things we have been up to!
We learnt all the stories off by heart! We discovered who broke into the three bears house, made Baby bear a new bowl of porridge and used straw, sticks and bricks to build a house for the three pigs.
We really value the support that our parents give us with their child’s reading and recognise how much this helps with their progress. We recommend that children read for a short time as often as possible at home
All children have a reading diary to keep in their book bags. Please could we ask parents to sign the diary each time they read together and add a short comment if they wish. When your child reaches 25/50/75/100/150/175/200 nights they will receive a certificate and sticker!
Children will be given a new reading book on a Monday and Thursday if they have read at home.
Key Words and Phonics
Children will bring home key words and letter sounds books to practise with you at home. Please keep these in their book bags at all times.
Reading in School
Children will be heard to read regularly by an adult both individually and in groups. We therefore ask that book bags are brought into school everyday!
Please take the time to work on your number formation books and rhymes at home.
Thank you to those who were able to come to the Maths stay and play session. We hope you enjoyed yourself and found the presentation helpful. If you were unable to attend or would like a copy of the presentation and hand out , I've attached it below.
If you have any questions about the session or you would like any extra guidance on how to support your child at home, please feel free to pop in and ask any questions.
In Reception children have continuous access to the outdoors. We would be grateful if your child could have a waterproof coat and some wellies in school at all times. Please ensure that all clothes have your child's name on them. It is so much easier to find the owner of lost property when it is labelled clearly.
PE is EVERY Friday, please remember to bring in your PE kits. This includes black shorts and jogging bottoms, a white T shirt, daps and trainers. PE kits can be left in school and will be sent home every half term to be washed.
Pots of Gold
In Reception we value your contribution to your child's learning. We would love to hear about all of your children's achievements outside of school, from getting a medal at football to learning to ride their bike! Use our POTS OF GOLD and send them in with your child, we will celebrate their achievements and display it on our wall for all to see!
Please can we ask that all toys from home do NOT come into school as they children are losing them and some are getting broken. Thank you ! Any toys that do come into school will be put into the cupboard for the rest of the day.
