Internet Safety for Under 5's

This week is internet safety week and it is important that we all keep our children safe online. Internet safety is as important for our youngest children as our older children. We have attached a link to help you guard against what can seem a difficult job keeping our children safe on line. Please see the attached link

Reception have been busy.

We are, as usual having a busy but exciting time in Reception. The attendance in Reception is one of the highest in school, well done everyone.

 All the children have reading books to take home and are loving being able to share their reading with staff. We listen to your children read 3 times a week and will aim to change their reading books regularly. Thank you for your support reading with your children at home. Reading or sharing books with your children enables them to progress and develop a love of reading.


Top Tips for reading at home:

  1. Read 10 minutes every night with your child.
  2. Discuss the illustrations. What do they think is going on? Why?
  3. Predict what may happen? What would be good/bad etc.
  4. Make up alternative endings.
  5. Discuss what your child’s likes/dislikes are about the text.
  6. What did we learn from the story? Was there a moral, did it give them any information? Was it factual or a fiction story?
  7. Can you change your voice for all the characters?
  8. Be guided by your child’s interests- Read your own stories as well as school books.
  9. Become an explorer- Read fact, fiction, rhymes, poems, picture books.
  10. Ask questions about the story.
  11. Discuss the sequence of events. Can you recall the events? Most important keep it short, enjoyable and fun.

    In our maths we are busy exploring numbers and shapes. We are learning to write numbers.


    Sometimes when we are busy learning and having fun, we can get very dirty. Look at our display and it will explain what we have been doing.
