Welcome to Reception.
We are very excited to have you in our classes this year and to be able to help you learn and grow. We’re going to work hard and have lots of fun. We have lots of exciting topics to learn about! These include: Once Upon a Rhyme; Families, friends and pets; Ready Steady Cook and St George and the Dragon.
We will be learning by playing in the classroom and outside. We will also learn by taking part in small group activities and whole class activities. We will also practise our phonics every day and we will show you how to start reading and writing! By the end of the year you will all be experts!
Don't forget to keep checking back to our class page to find out about all our news.
Look at the video on our Parents - Read Write Inc Phonics Page to see how we say our Pure Sounds when learning phonics. This helps us to say and read words more easily.
Home Learning Ideas
Want to receive photos and observations of your child's learning and playing in school?
Want to send us photos and comments about things your child can do and is interested in at home including their feedback from the Home Take Away Menu Activities (coming soon!)
All these observations could then be saved together in your child's electronic learning journal.
Just make sure your child's teacher has your email address and then look for the link to click on. It's as simple at that! Look forward to seeing your photos and comments. Thank you
Now in its 16th year, I CAN’s Chatterbox event aims to raise awareness around the importance of good speech, language and communication (SLC) skills for all children.
Chatterbox 2017 will take place from Monday 8th May 2017 and run for the entire week, giving nurseries and early years settings the opportunity to participate in five days of fun and engaging activities designed to get children chatting.
We are providing five quality downloadable educational resources designed by our very own speech and language experts, which will focus on the core areas of children’s early language including:
• Listening and attention
