Change over Tuesday
Reception reading books will be changed every Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their book bag, reading book(s) and reading record. Please bring these items every day as your child will regularly read with an adult in school.
Please ensure your child has full kit in school throughout the half-term. Kits will be sent home each holiday for washing. Hair should be tied up and earrings must be removed on these days. If children are wearing earrings they will not be allowed to join in with P.E lessons. P.E days may change from week to week. You will be informed on a weekly basis so please look out for messages on our classroom door.
In Read, Write, Inc. this week we have been learning new sounds: igh, ow. ‘igh’ is a trigraph – three letters that make one sound. We have practised writing the new diagraphs and the ‘Set 1 Sounds’ we already know. We say the words we want to write aloud, segment the word into the sounds we can hear and write the letter sounds in the sequence in which we hear them. Every day, during phonics, we all participate in group guided reading or peer reading sessions. The more we practise our reading the more fluent we become. Practise makes perfect!
Please continue to check online to complete homework tasks set on ‘Reading Eggs’ and ‘Oxford Owl E-Library’. You can find further information about these new resources on this class page. If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher. A link can be found on J2e for ease of access.
We are using the J2E service for remote learning at home. I have issued you with a login for the website. You will find it stuck into the front of your child's home reading diary.
Please find below instructions for how to login. If you have any questions please e-mail me at email@example.com and I will help you find the answer as soon as possible. (Please put my name in the 'subject' bar.)
Early Learning Goals
During parents evening, we discussed the Early Learning Goals. These are the targets we work towards during Reception to give children the foundations of learning in preparation for Year 1.
While this looks like a lot, please be mindful that many areas link in within the curriculum, and we work towards these across the year at your child's pace with differentiated learning. If you would like any ideas on how to support these areas of learning please ask your class teacher.
Literacy Activities October 2020
Please find below a couple of short clips to demonstrate typical literacy based activities used regularly in the classroom. Further clips can be found on R1’s and R3’s class pages. Literacy in Early Years is an important tool to enable children to begin their academic journey. It encompasses so much more than just reading and writing. Have a look….
