Welcome to Reception Class.
Our Last week
The children are all busy practicing their Host Planets and Star Trekking dance for the ‘Night Under the Stars’ performance on Tuesday evening. Please let us know if your child is able to attend. Please may they wear a brightly coloured, plain t shirt and shorts.
The children will be producing some very careful writing and maths number work in their new Year 1 books to show Mrs Patching. On Thursday they will be having another story and snack transition visit to the year 1 classroom with Mrs Patching.
On Friday we will be having party games to celebrate our amazing Reception Year! Please remember it is an early 2pm finish.
Thank you all for your amazing help and support this year. It has been a pleasure working with you and your lovely children. We wish you all a very happy holiday!
The children are really looking forward to our trip to the Owl and Monkey Haven on Tuesday. We will be getting lots of information and inspiration for our factual writing!
Please ensure you have returned your child’s permission slip to the office.
They will need to wear their normal school uniform and dress in an appropriate way for the weather on the day. They will need sun cream to be put on before school. Please provide your child with a sun hat and a raincoat in case the weather is variable.
This week the children will be continuing to choreograph a dance to some of Holst’s Planet Music and some of Star Trekking. This is ready for our performance at ‘Night Under the Stars’ on Tuesday 18th July.
In maths the children will be problem solving with money – making up total amounts, exchanging coins and solving addition and subtraction problems.
A very big thank you to Parents and Grandparents for your very generous donations towards the new Reception Class iPad! We will all enjoy the video clips now with sound and the children love benefiting from the extra access!
The children will be bringing home a school reading scheme book and information leaflet.
Please read the leaflet and share the book with your child. Enjoy talking about the pictures and letters your child knows. It would be very helpful if you could write the title of the book with a brief comment about your book sharing experience.
Please bring in the reading folder in the morning every day. When you have shared the book a number of times please encourage your child to put their folder in the green box labelled ‘Books to change in here please.’ If you/your child would like to keep the book for longer that is fine, please put the reading folder in the red box labelled ‘Books to continue to share in here please.’
Please remember each child learns to read at different paces, it is important the children have positive experiences with reading and not feel it is a race to get through the books- quality is better than quantity!
Please feel free to come and discuss any questions with Mrs.Tapper or Mrs. Nugent.
