Autumn term 2020
Just a short note to say thank you for all the help you have given to your children over the last few weeks to help them make such a brilliant transition into school. All the children are settling into a simple routine and showing us just how well they can play and learn alongside others. The children have found their pegs and trays, and are already enjoyed choosing the activities that they wanted to try. We will continue to ease the children into school life, helping them grow in confidence to become increasingly independent. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
In Reception children have the choice to learn indoors and outdoors. As the weather is changing can you please make sure that your child is dressed for the weather and has suitable footwear and a coat in school
Reception need their PE kit in school everyday.
Please provide kit in bag, which can be kept on their peg for the half-term.
PE sessions for Reception are on TUESDAY's, starting from 15th September.
Sessions will be outside, weather permitting.
The children have been developing their listening skills in class, and have been identifying sounds that they hear around them. (Phase 1)
We have begun to learn letter sounds in class. (Phase 2) We follow the Read Write Inc. scheme in school and initial sounds are taught in this order:
m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h, sh, r, j, v, y, w, th, z, ch, qu, x, ng, nk.
Useful websites to support phonics teaching at home:
Reading at home.
Reading is so important and you can enjoy this with your child at home.
We have sent home a reading book and reading record book. When you have read with your child please sign their reading record book.
We would ask that you share the book daily with your child until it is changed. Pleas re-read the story as often as your can as repetition is key at their stage of development.
The 'Wordless Stories' introduce the characters and children learn that the pictures tell a story, where a story begins and how to turn the pages.
We change the books when they read with an adult in class.
