Reception

Welcome to Reception!

 

SPRING

  •  

    We are extremely happy to welcome the new children and their families back to school after the Christmas Holidays. We hope you all have a lovely time.

     

    Can we just remind parents to make sure all their clothes are clearly labelled and to check this regularly. Snack money is due in every Monday and is £1:00 a week. This covers extra milk, extra fruit, biscuits, juice, toast, assembly treats and extra-curricular items.

     

    R.E

    Every week the children will participate in RE lessons. This term the themes are;

  • Celebrating - How people celebrate in Church,

  • Gathering - How the parish family gathers to celebrate the Eucharist and

  • Growing - How we look forward to Easter.

    The children will also be learning traditional prayers like the Hail Mary and Our Father and learning about the religion of Islam.

    Maths

    Every morning the children will take part in a maths lesson. This will be formal teaching, practical activities and worksheets. The key skills they will be working on this term are:

     

  • Count up to 5, then 10 objects, including in an irregular arrangement, match one-to-one; count actions, images, objects which cannot be moved.

  • Count out a set of up to 6 objects from a larger group.

  • Count reliably using numbers 1 to 20 and place the numbers in order.

  • Say the number after a given number up to 20.

  • Say the number before a given number up to 20.

  • In practical activities, perform additions and subtractions and use the appropriate and relevant vocabulary.

  • Use appropriate marks to record numbers and operations: begin to use +, –, and = to record additions and subtractions.

  • Use familiar objects and common shapes to create and recreate patterns and build models.

  • Recognise the common units of time (minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years). Exchange one coin for several of another and make small amounts.

     

    On occasion the children may receive maths homework to help embed what they are doing in class.

    Phonics

    Each morning the children will also take part in a phonic lesson. This term we are focusing on Phase 3 letters and sounds. The sounds and graphemes they are learning this term are:

  • Set 6: j, v, w, x.

  • Set 7: y, z, zz, qu.

  • Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng.

  • Vowel digraphs: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er.

     

    English

    The children will have weekly English lessons which will be themed as followed.

  •  

    Winter, Snow, Ice and Dark Nights

    Dragons and Chinese New Year

    Food and Cooking

    Topic

    The topic throughout the term will change depending on the children's interests. They will be doing topics on People who Help Us, Spring and Easter. There will also be additional topics throughout but these will be planned according to the children.

    P.E

    P.E will be every Wednesday and Friday and the children will come to school in their PE kits. They do not need to bring a change of clothes with them. Their PE kit is a navy blue tracksuit or black shorts with a white polo t-shirt and black pumps/trainers.

     

    Homework

    Each week the children will take home one or two new reading books to practise.

    We encourage reading as much as possible and if you could hear your child read a few times a week this would help with their progress. We do ask that your child brings in their reading books and diaries daily so they can also read in school. Spellings will begin this term. The children will have a spelling test every Monday and will receive new spellings after their test also. The children will be monitored weekly and their spellings will be differentiated accordingly.

    On occasion the children may receive maths homework to help embed what they are doing in class.

     

 

The Early Years staff are always there to help and talk to you over any concerns before and after school. If there is a problem and the teacher isn’t available, ring the school secretary Miss Berry and book an appointment, it will be dealt with quickly.

 

We look forward to working with you over the year in supporting your child making the most progress through their learning journey.

 

Mrs Scott (Class Teacher and Assistant Head Teacher), Miss Rafferty (Class Teacher), Mrs Davidson (Teaching Assistant)
