Welcome to Reception!
We are the reception children and are 4 and 5 years old. We are very lucky to have a fantastic classroom and outdoor area to work in. Our sheltered area means we can learn outside whatever the weather! We work very closely with our friends in nursery.
Weekly ‘Helping your child to learn at home’ leaflets outline the learning that is taking place each week across the different areas of learning.
Weekly phonics homework – oral initially, then written.
Weekly mental maths homework – we ask parents to help their child to practice their counting skills on a daily basis. The ‘Helping at home’ leaflet will explain what we’d like you to practice at home in detail. Some weeks we will also include written work to complete.
Reading books – We ask parents to read at home every night with their child. It’s fine to read the same home reading book more than once.
Each half term parents are invited into our classrooms for a shared session. We run a morning and afternoon shared session each half term. Letters are sent out separately advertising the dates and times.
Autumn 2 – Shared reading session.
Spring 1 – Shared maths session.
Summer 1 – Shared phonics session.
Summer 2 – Shared outdoor session.
During each term, we hold regular pop-in sessions for parents to come into the classroom to look at our fabulous displays and children’s learning journeys.
P.E. days are subject to change. Please make sure your child always has their kit in school. Kits will be sent home at half term for a wash!
