Reception Teachers: Mrs. Brady (Foundation Stage Leader)
Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Doyle, Miss Kemp and Miss Riley
We are so pleased to see how beautifully our Reception children have settled into school life. They are clearly enjoying learning and we are very proud of how they are all progressing.
During the Summer term, we will be looking at the topic of 'Growth'. We will be observing changes in our garden as we move towards the Summer, growing our own plants and flowers, and talking about how we change as we grow too. We will create our own versions of Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' and see who can grow the tallest beanstalk.
Later on during this term, the children will begin having visits to Class One so that they can get to know the teaching staff that they will work with in September.
Thank you so much for all of your support so far this year.
Please can all parents ensure that all children have PE kits in school and bring their bookbags every day? If all items can be labelled that will help us so much. All children also need a labelled pair of wellies as we play outside in all weathers.
The children are really working hard with their letter sounds and reading books in class. Please support your child by encouraging him/her to read as much as possible at home. All of the 'Jolly Phonics' actions and sounds are available on YouTube. We can also recommend the 'PhonicBursts' app and 'Teach Your Monster to Read' app.
Remember to support your local libraries with regular visits and share stories at home as much as possible.
We encourage children to take jumpers and cardigans off if they feel too warm so please remember to label these items.
Black shoes with Velcro fastenings, rather than laces, are also a HUGE help. Thank you for your support.
We are delighted with the response we have had after sending home 'Proud Clouds'. Please continue to use these to inform us of any fantastic achievements that you have noticed at home. It may be that your child has ridden a bike for the first time, they have helped at home or they have counted to 20 for the first time. We love to hear about your child's achievements! We always read 'Proud Clouds' out at carpet time and display them afterwards. If you need any more clouds, they are available from the corridor on the 'Proud Clouds' display.
