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'. 

 

This half term, our theme is 'All around the world'

 

We have been reading the story of Handa's Surprise.

 

In Maths, we have been learning about money. We have been using 1p, 2p and 5p to buy toys in our pretend shop.

 

We are in need of more clean, dry recycling for our junk modelling station. Thank you!

 

As the colder weather continues, please make sure your child has a full P.E kit in school. This includes a tracksuit and spare socks. Plimsolls are not suitable for outdoor P.E.

 

Please check our page regularly for updates on our learning. See you soon!

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.
