Welcome to our Reception class!
Mrs Salt, Mrs Maughan & Miss Clarke

This half term we are going to be looking at different stories, starting with the Little Red Hen and the Gruffalo. We will have challenges set up in the classroom for the children to complete which are themed around the stories and they will also have set challenges for their groups.

We are trying very hard to write sentences, sounding out our words and writing the sounds that we need in order. We have started doing an activity called 'Helicopter Stories' too. During our challenge time we have to make up our own stories and write them down. Once a day the children all sit together around a stage and we act out their stories. The children are writing some fantastic stories already.

This half term we have been doing lots of number work. We are counting to 100 in 1s, 10s, and we are just starting to count in 5s! We are doubling up to 10, halving to 10 and working on simple addition and subtraction. We are going to be doing lots of work on size, capacity and measurements this half term too.

Routines in Reception

Our P.E. lessons take place on Wednesday but if the weather is fine we may venture out at other times. Please ensure that your child has a P.E. kit with shorts, t-shirt and pumps at school. During the spring term some of our lessons may take place outside so please could you ensure that your child has suitable footwear at school at all times. Tracksuits may be worn when the weather is cold. Children should have their hair tied back and earrings must either be taken out or covered. Please send in some micropore tape or plasters to cover their earrings. Also, the children are encouraged to bring labelled water bottles to access during the day. The children also need to bring with them their school planner diaries everyday.

Reading at home

We try to read with the children as often as possible at school and ask that the children read with an adult at home as often as possible. Reading books are changed daily for the children that have finished their book.

Useful links: — some nice games for practising phonics — the games are super for the children to practise their mouse skills on a computer
