Reception

Welcome to our Class page! Here you will find news from the classroom, photos of the children in action and our weekly congratulations to our winner of 'Work of the week'.

Our topic this term is... Do you want to be friends?

We are going to be learning about what makes a good friend and about people who help us in school and in our community.

 

The children have settled into school life beautifully at St. Lawrence. They have enjoyed making new friends, playing with lots of new toys and learning new things. 

Here is a few photographs of our time so far.

Helping at Home

One of the best ways to help your child is to encourage a love of books. 

Reading to your child, looking at pictures books and asking questions about the text or images will help them to develop their vocabulary and comprehension skills.

Finding opportunities to count, to look for shapes and colours will help them to develop maths skills.

Encouraging independence, learning to dress and undress and to carry out simple tasks around the home is also valuable. 

If you have any questions about learning please come and ask.
