Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Friday 17th May 2019

 

Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend the class assembly today. The children really enjoyed showing you what they have learnt. 

 

Home Learning

On Monday I will send a letter formation pack for the letters  a c d g o and s. Some children are still using capital letters when writing so please practice the lower case letters. If your child wants a challenge please have them try to write a sentence using words containing the letter you have practiced e.g. For the letter 'a' The ant and the cat had an apple. 

 

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, ir, ou and oy.. We have also covered the tri-graphs igh, ear 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.

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.
