Welcome to the Reception class

 2017-2018

 

All the children have settled in very well and have made new friends.

From Monday 9th October, the children will play outside with the rest of KS1 on the playground from 8.30am until the whistle blows at 8.40am.

 

Our teachers are Mrs Foster and Mrs Lam.

Mrs Marlow and Mrs Gilliberti work in our class too.

PE days are Thursday and Friday but children need to have their kit in school from Monday to Friday please, in case a change of clothes is needed.

We take part in 'Run a mile a day.'  Children can have trainers in school to change into or wear their outdoor school shoes for this instead.

Please remove earrings on PE days or send surgical tape to cover them. Thank you.

 

Reading folders and a bottle of water are also needed each day.

As well as developing a love of books through story, we are learning to read independently using the Read Write Inc phonic scheme. The children are enjoying reading and writing new sounds and are beginning to blend them into words.

Parent time for this term began on Tuesday 5th September.

All parents are welcome to share time in class from the beginning of the day until 9.45am each Tuesday. Grandma, grandad, auntie or uncle are welcome to join us if mum or dad aren't free.

We hope you enjoy this special time with your children.

 

Having the time and opportunities to play at home with parents and by themselves is very important. Learning through play is also an important aspect of learning in the Reception class, as explained briefly in-

The Importance of Play

 

 

Many thanks to Lucy, from the school nurse service, for teaching us about when and how to wash our hands properly.

We enjoyed sharing our growing number skills with our mums and dads during parent time.
