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.
Every Wednesday parents/carers are invited into classrooms from 8:45-9:00 am to share a book with their child. We hope you can make it!
The last Wednesday of each half term is an extended ‘Welcome Wednesday’! Parents/carers are invited into school to spend some time with their child exploring the activities that take place in Reception. The session will take place from 9:00-10:00 a.m. and each session will have a different curriculum focus. More information will be given nearer the time. Please look out for the letter inviting you to join us!
In Read Write Inc. this week, we have been learning the sounds practicing all of our Set 1 sounds and digraphs. We are working hard to blend sounds, begin to read red words and exploring our reading books. Here are some RWI resources to help at home!
This week our topic book is ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have had lots of fun exploring different materials that we can build houses with, and acting like the wolf to see if we can blow them away! We have been discussing other materials to use to create our houses and if they would be a good idea, such as metal, paper and glass (which we decided wasn’t safe to try!)
Our Maths focus this week is finding One Less. We have been hiding our friends, sharing objects and using number lines to help in our understanding. We have also been introduced to the take-away symbol!
We are VERY excited for our Reception Nativity! If you do not yet have tickets for the show, please come and see Miss Brown or Mrs Curtis.
Thank-you to all of our families who write in their children’s diaries. Every day your child reads at home earns them a point towards their next reading certificate, so please ensure you fill in their diaries each day you read.
Please bring in book bags every day to allow us to read with your child in school. Thank-you.
