Welcome to Reception
Teacher: Miss Chance
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Costine
Welcome to Reception! This is the final foundation year for your child. In Reception, children have the opportunity to become independent and curious learners. We achieve this through active learning within the classroom provision. Children are encouraged to think critically, be creative learners and explore their surroundings.
The children have access to a range of areas of learning including:
Four Specific areas of learning:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive arts & Design
Three Prime areas of learning:
- Personal, Social & Emotional development
- Physical Development
- Communication & Language
This term our topic is A Starry Night. The children will learn all about Space and different Nocturnal Animals.
We are continuing to learn our initial sounds and begin to learn some digraphs in phonics. Our tricky words for this half term are: I, no, go, to, the & into, he, she, we, me, be, was.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday morning, so please ensure that your children are learning these at home in preparation for the short test. A list of each groups spellings are available on our class page.
Reading books are sent home on a Monday and need to be returned by Thursday so children can be given a new book by the following Monday.
P.E. and Forest School will be on a Friday morning so please could children come into school in their P.E. clothes each Friday. Children will need wellies and waterproofs in school for Forest School too.
Please check Seesaw for more regular updates and photos.
If you need to contact the teachers please either pop into school or e-mail school and the message will be passed on.
