Dear Parents,

Welcome to Reception. Your children have settled really well into Reception and are ready for their new challenges.

Our doors will be open in Reception from 8.30 a.m. until 9a.m to allow for a smooth start to the day and to allow for social distancing. Thank you for your cooperation with this, the class is calm and the children have quickly adapted to their new routine.

In Reception we learn through play, both indoor and outdoor.

We follow the Early Years curriculum with its 7 areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Equal importance is given to both our indoor and outdoor learning.

This half term, we will be beginning our reading journey. We will be learning our phonic sounds, 1 sound a day and beginning to blend our sounds to enable us to read words .I will send the sounds we have learnt though the week home on a Friday . We are using Read, Write Inc as our phonics scheme. You can watch videos on the Ruth Miskin / Read, Write Inc website if you would like to see example of phonic lessons.

In maths we are counting 1-10 and beginning to write our numbers. We will also be finding the total number of items in two groups by counting all of them. Finding  the number that is one more than a given number and finding one more or one less from a group of up to five objects, then ten objects.   

P.E. in Reception is on a Friday morning. Your children should come into school wearing their P.E kits, which will consist of black joggers/ leggings, white t-shirt and pumps/trainers.

If you have any questions at all, you can ring school for an appointment, or leave a message and I will ring you back.

Thank you

Mrs. Thomas
