Welcome to Reception


Happy New Year and welcome back. We hope you all had a relaxing Christmas break. The staff would like to thank everyone for our gifts and cards. We are all so touched at yout thoughtfulness and generosity.

Week beginning 24th January

We will be continuing using What the Ladybird Heard. We will be writing captions to go with our maps of the farm.

We will be investigating what farms are for and where fruit and vegetables, dairy products and bread come from.

In Maths we will be working on recognising and making the number 7 and comparing groups of objects as bigger or smaller than each other.


Reading: New reading books will be sent home every Wednesday, so please ensure that the old books are returned in folders on a Tuesday, to enable us to change them. Initially, the children will bring home a lilac book and two books that are stickered with ‘R’.The ‘R’ books will be chosen by the children and are to be shared with an adult for enjoyment. Once we have assessed all the children’s phonetic awareness and they are able to read words containing s, a, t, p, i, n, we will give them a banded book (numbered 1-12) to match their ability. We will also send home word cards that consolidate our phonics teaching that week. Your child will read regularly with different adults in Reception; in our phonics lessons, Literacy lessons and on a 1-to-1 basis. We will assess them throughout the term and move them up reading bands accordingly. By the end of Reception, chldren should be reading at a minimum of set 10.


**Now the weather has started to change, the children will need to bring a waterproof / warm coat in addition to their jumpers. It would be really helpful if you could practise with them how to put on their coat and how to do the zip so that we can help them to get out to play and lined up for the end of the day quickly. 

At various points in the week, you child's class teacher may be out of the classroom attending courses, conducting assessments etc. Please be reassured that the children will have an adult that is familiar to them covering.
