Welcome to Reception! 

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning about in school and give you ideas for ways to help at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about how and what your child will be learning click on this link: Parents guide to the EYFS

This week (wc 17/9/18) we will be:

talking about being a good friend and sharing. We will be thinking about the 'Rainbow Fish' and the choices he made with his friends. Why not share the story together at home here The Rainbow Fish story

mark making. We will be encouraging the children to be risk takers and make their own marks and tell us what they want their writing to say. We will also challenge them and ask if they can use any letters in their writing that they may know or remember from last week. Ask your child which letters we have learnt so far and see if they can remember their song and action.

investigating colours. We will be making our own rainbow fish and trying to mix their own brand new colours along the way.

thinking about belonging. We will talk about how we belong to our classes and also a big school but we are all different and unique. The children will get to explore the whole school and even venture upstairs!!

continuing to do 'Wake up shake up' every morning. We do a little bit of dancing as it is great for our physical development and co-ordination and wakes our brain up ready to concentrate at carpet time. Click the following link to have a dance at home with everyone in the house! The Dinosaur Stomp wake up dance

Last week we talked about ways that we can make our brain bigger as at Chester Blue Coat we encourage all our children to have a 'growth mindset'. We encourage all our children to try brand new things and we encourage them to have a go at tricky things and we focus on praising the process and not just the outcome. For example we will praise the effort they put into making a painting or jigsaw and not just the beautiful picture at the end. This gives them a positive approach to learning and the unknown and that we dont have to get everything right or perfect but we do have to try our best and find different ways to solve problems. We talked through the following cartoon to begin to understand how to make our brains grow - Growth mindset with mojo

Don't forget we have a reading meeting for parents and families at 2.45pm on Thursday 20th September - please come along and find out how we teach reading in Reception.

Have a great week from the Reception team smiley
