We have had an amazing start to the new school year. We were so excited to see our new Reception class arrive at school on time and they were all very brave and are already coming into school on their own! We have had some super changes this year as we have two classrooms that we are going to be using as one whole room! We are very impressed with how all children have settled in and are using the room to their advantage, they have already been exploring! Miss Nicklin is our Reception teacher and we have Mrs Cliffe joining us in Reception this year so we are very lucky! We are also very lucky to have Miss Baranyoi with us this year! Children will have lots of adults to support their learning this year and are already confident in sharing ideas and knowledge with all grownups! They are all eager to learn and we are looking forward to an exciting term learning about things that interest them.
Our first topic is going to be ‘Traditional Tales’. This will give us lots of opportunities to learn about exciting things that are all to do with some of our favourite stories! We are looking at Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man and The Three Little Pigs.
We will be starting to create your child’s Learning Journey which we add to throughout the year, so if your child does anything super special at home please bring it in and show us so we can add it in too! Any questions you have, please do not hesitate to ask any of the adults in Early Years!
Look at how much fun we have had in the role play area! We have been acting out our favourite stories! See if you can guess which Traditional Tale we are from!
We will need our book bag EVERYDAY please.
We will need our PE kit every WEDNESDAY. Our PE kit needs to contain a PLAIN top, black or grey joggers/shorts and a pair of pumps or trainers. (If you need a plain top, please ask our office, we have team tops for sale.)
We will need warm outdoor clothes; coat, hat, gloves every day too.
Please make sure that we have our name in all of our pieces of clothing.
Things to do at home:
We will bring home a reading diary and a school reading book in our book bags. Please ensure that we bring this in to school every day so that we can read with our teacher. We love to show our teacher how good we are at reading. We can change our reading books whenever we like! If we have read our book at home, we can change it the next day so that we get to read lots of exciting books.
We can carry on learning at home using these websites, please help us with this because there are some things we might not understand:
http://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?AgeGroup=1 – there are lots of games on this website that can help us to learn lots!
http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk (Just phase 2, 3 or 4 – the free bits!)
Keep popping back to see all of the fantastic things we are learning about. We will update very soon!
