New Life

Growing and Keeping Healthy.

 

Topics will arise according to the children's interests. We believe in following the children's interests to springboard our topics for the week. So look out for lots of interesting learning going on!

 

Welcome to Reception

The children have settled well during their first half term, making lots of friends and starting their life-long learning journey.

 

Book bags 

Book bags are to be brought to school every Wednesday. Book bags will be sent home every Friday with a library book that we recommend that you read to your child. They will also bring home their learning log with a home/school activity for you to complete together (be an active member of dragon club). This will be based around your child's learning in school. Learning logs will be shared with the class each week.

 

Water bottles 

Water bottles are to be brought to school daily and can be kept in school as they are refilled daily. 
 

PE Kits 

PE kits will need to be in school after the half term. These will be sent home at the end of each half term for washing. PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. As the weather is now changing, can you please ensure your child has a pair of wellies and a waterproof coat.

 

Snack 

Children are able to bring in a snack from home. Please note this snack must only be an item of fruit. 

 

 

**Useful links!!**

 

Some parents have asked for advice on educational games/ websites that they can use at home with their child.

These are a few suggestions that we use in school and they are popular with the children. Why not have a go and have some fun!

Happy New Year to you all! 

The children have had a busy first week back after the holidays and have settled back into school. They have enjoyed catching up with their friends and sharing their Christmas news.

 

Just a few reminders:

All children will bring home a reading book on a Friday, please return once your child has read it, can you please record comments in the reading log. It is important that you listen to your child read to you on a daily basis and are rewarded with lots of praise and encouragement. This will develop your child's fluency in reading.smileyyes

We will be sending words home for you to practise reading and writing with your child. This will help your childs' writing skills.

Dragon Club homework books will still be returned on a Wednesday as usual. 

P.E. is still on a Thursday, can you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school.

Water bottles are to be taken home at the end of each day and refilled.

A Stay and Play based on early number activities will be held this half term, date to follow.

 

This term the children will be exploring the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood' for Literacy which will then lead into Traditional Tales. If you can share a traditional tale at home or send in the book for us all to share that would lovely.

In maths we are counting objects reliably to 20, recognising and ordering numbers to 20.

We will be exploring our local environment.
