Summer Term 2018

Welcome back and I hope you have had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready for the term ahead.

The children are learning about Plants and Growing this term. We will be learning about what plants need to grow, the parts of a plant and identifying different plants. We will be planting bean plants as part of Understanding the World and watching them grow to observe changes over time. The children are also going to be helping to plant herbs and plants in the outdoor area. We will also be learning about the life cycle of plants.

2017 -2018

Welcome to Class 1! This is the Reception class and we have fun everyday exploring and learning new things. The children have settled in extremely well and are enjoying life here at school. They have built strong relationships with their buddies and are building strong friendships with their peers.

The children have started playing Police and Ambulance games, which is leading us to learn about ‘People Who Help Us’ after October half term. We will also be learning about Winter, Christmas and the history of Christmas around the world and of course we will be preparing for our Christmas nativity, which the children are all extremely excited about.

What you need to remember

  • PE kit – indoor and outdoor kit. Indoor kit – t-shirt and shorts. Outdoor kit – jogging bottoms, jumper and trainers. They can be left in school during term time and taken home at holidays.
  • Coats, Hats and Scarves – so we can go outdoors even if it’s a bit cold.
  • Reading books and Phonics books – need to be in school every day.

 

Home Learning

If your child achieves a task at home, please let us know, you can simply note it down on a post it and send it in with them and we will include it in their Learning Journey’s. Over the years we have had all sorts including:

  • Riding a bike with no stabilisers for the first time
  • Helping a parent/adult with a job around the house
  • Being really polite at a wedding/christening/party
  • Climbing up the stairs one foot to one step at a time
  • Building a model
  • Cooking/baking
  • Gardening
  • Drawings/work done at home

Continuing your learning at home is extremely important. Here in Reception we strongly suggest little and often. The children have all received their reading books and we encourage them to read to an adult four times a week, even if it’s just for 5 minutes – it doesn’t need to be the whole book. We hold a reading challenge in school, which the children also enjoy taking part in.

In Reception the children also have a maths target, called SMIRFs (Space Mission Instant Recall Facts) and the children will need to practise these throughout the week, we will then check them on a Friday and if they know them we move them onto a new target. The children in Reception are thrilled at being turned into little astronauts and are keen to move up the planets already! We have been doing SMIRFs for several years now and we have found they have helped to improve children’s knowledge and that it has in turn helped their arithmetic and speed in answering questions.

We thank you for your continued support! If you have any questions, please contact us.

 

Phonics

Articulation of the 44 phonemes is really important as the correct pronunciation enables your child to blend sounds together more easily. Click the link to hear the pronunciation of the sounds:
