Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Monday 11th March 2019

 

Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend family learning last week. The Family learning team were very impressed with the children's behaviour and willingness to try new things. 

 

Home Learning

Two home learning challenges have been sent home, one where children need to make a vehicle (car, bus, aeroplane, boat) to talk about. The other is maths based and is about interacting with number and using a number line to help addition. 

 

Phonics

Children have now covered all 26 letter sounds and the digraphs: ch, th, sh, ng, nk, ay, ee, ow (as in snow), oo (as in book), oo (as in zoo), ar, or, air, ir, ou and oy.. We have also covered the tri-graphs igh and air. We are now focusing on using these in our writing. All children have a reading book now, books will be changed regularly. Please remember to sign in the reading diary so we can change books and children can get their house point for reading. The link below shows you how each letter if formed so that you can help your children at home.

Maths

This week homework was sent home for the children relating to addition, we will be covering this in detail in class over the next few weeks and looking at recording addition sentences. We will also be looking at subtraction next week. 

 

PE

We have continued getting children changed for PE, please encourage your children to be as independent as possible when getting changed at home. PE days are: Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please ensure that children have their PE bags in school on these days.
