Welcome to Reception (Class 1)
(Please scroll down and click on our newsletter to find out what is happening in Class 1 next week)
Reception is the final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which runs from Birth to 5.
Our Teaching Staff:
Mrs Richardson (Class Teacher)
Mrs Petchell (HLTA)
Mrs Nicholson (cover Teacher on a Thursday)
Please ensure all uniform, coats and shoes are labelled.
Please ensure your child brings their water bottle, reading folder and school rucksack to school daily.
P.E. is every Thursday with Mr Hall and Mrs Petchell.
Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit in school.
On a Wednesday afternoon it is Mrs Richardson's PPA time. During this time the children will have music and movement with Mrs Petchell, PSHE with Mrs George and French with Mrs Lark.
On a Thursday Mrs Richardson does not teach as it is her Leadership time due to her role as Senior Teacher. Mrs Nicholson will be teaching.
Please look at our Long Term Plan below to find out what your child will be learning during their time in Reception. The themes and ideas are starting points for the children’s learning. Where possible, we will plan activities based on the children’s interests and in response to our assessments and observations.
Our topics for Autumn Term are 'All About Me and Celebrations.
In Literacy we will be focussing on the books The Something by Rebecca Cobb and Juniper Jupiter by Lizzie Stewart as well as reading other stories for pleasure such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, So Much, Peace at Last.
In Maths we follow the White Rose scheme.
Your child will bring home a reading book weekly that is matched to the phonic sounds taught in class that week. Please listen to your child read their book 4 times a week and write in their reading diary when they have read to you. When we change their book, we will award a sticker for every time they have read at home to put on their bookmark. When they have a full bookmark, they will be awarded a certificate for super reading.
