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
Next term our topic is Sunshine and Sunflowers.
In the Sunshine and Sunflowers project your child will explore their local environment and see how it has changed throughout the year. They will grow flowers, fruit and vegetables in the garden area. They will learn how to care for plants and animals, identifying some different types. They will take part in outdoor learning activities and find out how to stay safe in the sun. We are looking forwards to visiting our local area and having a picnic in the park. (more details to follow)
We are beginning phase 4 Letters & Sounds in Phonics. Please see the tricky words below to practice with your child at home.
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.
