Welcome to Reception!
Our class page will give you information about all the exciting things happening in our class and around school! We will be posting updates about what we are learning and photographs of some of the things we have been doing in class.
Themes: People who help us
Our theme for the first 3 weeks of term will be ‘People who help us’. As part of this topic we will be talking about the people in our lives who help us everyday in different ways such as family, friends and adults at school or clubs. We will also be learning about other people who may help in an emergency including, the police, paramedics, doctors, nurses, firefighters and rescue services, and also people who help when we need them such as postal workers and mechanics. We would welcome adults who work in these professions to come and talk to us about their jobs, so if you know anyone who will be willing to come into class, please come and speak to Miss Simester.
It can be confusing to know how to help your child with their reading and it is so much more than just reading the sounds and words, so here are a few tips to help them at home:
Our main maths focus over the next week will be exploring simple subtraction. We will be looking at different strategies and resources we can use to work out subtraction problems and at ways we can record and show our ideas. We will also be continuing our learning about repeating patterns and sequences.
Here is a link to a very helpful document for parents. It explains the expectations for the children based on their age in months. Please take a look as this will give you an idea of what we are covering at school and it gives ideas about how to help your child at home in different areas of our curriculum. If you have any questions about the document or about where your child is currently working please come have a chat to me and i will be happy to discuss it with you.
Thank you for all of the ‘Star Moments’ you have sent in, it is so lovely to read all of the exciting things the children are doing at home. I have set up an area in the cloakroom where you can peg any moments you bring into school up on the washing line for everyone to see. As it gets full these will be transferred into a file where they will be stored. There are also spare moments for you to take if you need more at home. Please help yourself!
Stay and Play
We run Stay and Play sessions every Monday morning from 8:55-9:55. It is a great opportunity to come and spend some time playing alongside your child and see what they get up to in class. Please come and join us if and when you can.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me!
