Reception - Matisse & Mozart
These are some of the things we will be learning about
We will be using Numicon and TenTown to help our children develop their maths skills. During our daily maths sessions, we will also develop our ability to count and will work on using mathematical concepts to solve problems. During our free play sessions, all areas across the curriculum are developed, especially problem solving, where we can try to work things out for ourselves and help other people.
P.E day is Wednesday
For Reception Class
Please bring full PE kit
Show and tell will be on a Friday
In Reception we are learning about the new school, values and how to listen to and respect each other. We are all learning to become good friends, how to share and to support one another. We are learning to become independent, to take care of ourselves and finding out about what we need to do to stay safe and healthy. We are finding out about our strengths and weaknesses and setting ourselves goals.
We will be using ‘Read, Write, Inc.’ as our phonics scheme. It has been developed with different learning styles in mind. Children learn in different ways; visually, auditory and kinaesthetically, and this scheme will help children learn through seeing, saying and doing. These lessons will help the children to read and write – sounding out words and also building them. Please practice any green words that come home and complete any handwriting sheets in the folders.
Show and tell will be every other Friday.
Please encourage your child to bring in something interesting from home to talk about based on our topic at the time.
Please bring your child's reading book and book bag to school every day. We aim to hear your child read individually or in a small group as often as possible. When your child reads their reading book with you at home please sign or put a smiley face in their reading record (orange book). Regular daily reading and word recognition is the best way to support reading at this early stage.
We will visit our school library every Friday. Your child may keep a library book for that week.
