In Reception, we learn through play-based learning where we investigate, explore and discover whilst developing our independence. To find out more information about our Curriculum please click the following link:
All children should be wearing:
PE clothing should be worn on PE days, which are Tuesdays and Fridays.
The PE uniform is: PE t-shirt in the child's house colour, with school logo, black shorts/jogging bottoms, with the school cardigan or sweatshirt, the children will stay in their PE kit all day so there is no need to bring in uniform as well.
Our library day is on Friday. The children borrow a book from our school library every Friday. The books should be returned by Friday in order to choose a different book each week.
Water Bottles and Snacks
Children should have a water bottle, clearly labelled with their name, all clothing should also be labelled. There is no need for your child to bring in a snack as fruit is provided at every first break, also rucksacks are not needed, only book bags should come in to school.
We know some parents have had difficulty in ordering a hot meal for their child. The contact number for Feeding Hungry Minds is : 01924792334 or you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. ALL children are expected to take up the free hot meal which is offered, please do register your child and place an order for a meal. If your child has any allergies we are able to give you an allergy form to complete which we will send to the catering company.
EARRINGS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT ANY TIME - if your child does have pierced ears then please remove the earrings before they come to school.
Home Learning and Google Classroom
It is so important to spend the time reading with your child. We would advise you to read with your child every day to support them with their reading and language development. Each child is given a reading eggs login which is an app designed to support children with phonics and early reading skills.
We will also be introducing Google Classroom in the new year.
We teach phonics through the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised synthetic phonics scheme. Please click the link below which will take you to the phonics page for parents.
Advent - Birthdays
As we approach Advent and think about the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas, we have been sharing our own experiences of how we celebrate birthdays.
We were joined by Teddy who was excited for his own Birthday coming up. We helped him prepare by making cards, cakes and party invitations. We finished the week with a birthday party for Teddy!
Traditional Tales - Spring 1
This half term we are going to take a look at some traditional fairy tales as well as some alternative versions. We started with The Three Little Pigs by making our own characters from playdough, exploring different building materials and writing lists of materials we will need when building our own houses.
