Reception

TEACHER: MRS P DUNN

TEACHING ASSISTANT:  MRS J QUIRK

Welcome to Reception!

The children have now settled into the Reception class routine and are working hard. It has been lovely observing their friendships develop, as they explore the classroom and access the resources. We are looking forward to helping them learn and grow as they play and explore together.

We are currently assessing the children to find out what they already know, understand and can do, to enable us to plan effectively for each child's learning needs. We are passionate about pupil progress and will regularly monitor the children's progress and set them personalised targets. We look forward to working with you to help your child achieve their full potential.

                        

Our Fantastic Families

We have been talking and learning about our different families. The children have enjoyed listening to each other talk about their family photographs, which are now on display in our classroom.

Reading Rocks

Thank you for allowing your children to bring in their favourite reading book from home. It has been wonderful to listen to the children speak so enthusiastically about their stories.

Before reading each book we have been identifying the name of the author, illustrator and reading the blurb.

School Reading Books

We will be sending home a school reading book next week. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record book each time you share the book with them. We change the books every Monday. Please also read books from home as being exposed to a wide range of books will benefit your child.

                                                            

We want to encourage children to read at home. Research shows that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge, a better understanding of other cultures and are more successful in adult life.

Sharing a book with your child allows you to share adventures and experiences in the safe world of the book. It allows you to ask questions, talk about what has happened and decide what you think together.

Please listen to your child read as often as possible and write a comment in their reading record book. Mr. Smith will be monitoring reading and your child’s name will be placed in the Golden Box if they read at home at least five times a week.

Summer Reading Challenge

We are very proud of the children in our class who completed the summer reading challenge and are now officially ‘Animal Agents’!

Super smart and looking the part!

It was wonderful to see the children looking super smart in their school P.E. kits. They enjoyed taking part in a number of fun games and developed their catching and throwing skills.

We were very impressed with the number of children who could get dressed and undressed independently. Keep practicing those tricky buttons at home!

Reception high frequency words
