Reception 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Reception 2021-2022
We warmly welcome you and your child to Reception and hope that you will find this class page useful throughout the year. We will regularly update the page with notices of forthcoming events and general messages. It will also include the areas of learning that we will be covering and activities that you might want to try at home to help support your child's learning.
Over the coming weeks, we will be focusing on the idea that whilst we are all similar in some ways, we have differences that make us special and unique. We will be doing lots of lovely activities to explore this and will share books such as 'Whoever You are' by Mem Fox, 'Something Else' by Kathryn Cave, 'Two Eyes, A Nose and a Mouth' by Roberta Grobel and 'You Be You' by Linda Kranz.
Many thanks to those of you who are sending your child's reading book in every day. Just a reminder that we change books on Mondays and Thursdays and so if you're child's book is not in, they won't be given a new one to take home.
We have a 'family tree' in our classroom and each year we fill it with photographs of our families. The photographs are used by the children to talk about their families and to help them feel part of our school family. Please send us in a photograph of your child with their family so that we can place it on the tree. Thank you.
Uniform - Please label all items of clothing and belongings, including coats, footwear, bags and water bottles. It can be tricky to find lost items when they are not labelled.
Book Bags - These are available to purchase from the office and will be needed to take reading books and pictures to and from school in.
Wellies - Each child has their own boot space for a pair of wellies. As we use our outdoor area in all weathers, we strongly encourage you to send in a labelled pair of wellies for your child to use. This saves their shoes and keeps their feet dry in wet weather.
We have started to introduce letters and sounds to the children. Your children have been taught almost all of the Phase 2 sounds, which we will send home next week for you to practise over the half-term break. Remember to ask your child to say the letter sound, perform the action and sing the songs. You can find these songs on YouTube if you search Jolly Phonics letter sounds.
Please follow this link to watch a short video of the pure letter sounds. This will help you to pronounce the sounds correctly when supporting your child to read.
Many thanks for your continued support.
