Welcome to Reception!
The Reception class teachers would like thank all parents for their cooperation and support this year. The children have made exceptional progress and are now confident to continue their exciting learning adventure into year 1. We have loved seeing the children progress as readers, writers, explorers, investigators and artists.
As the teachers, learning support assistants and children begin a new adventure next academic year, we wish everyone lots of luck and look forward to seeing all the children return to school as Year 1 children in September.

When your child is blending independently, they will begin to take home a scheme reading book. We endeavour to read at least twice a week with your child and will send the book home for them to read to you. These books should be able to be read by your child independently. Please speak to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading. Alternatively, you may wish to write in your child's Reading Record Book.
Please do encourage your child to read to you at home and help them with their challenges in their home learning book. We recommend 5 minutes a day and remember, little and often is best!
As your child is exposed to new words and vocabulary, they will develop a bank of tricky 'Red Words'.
These are words that are not phonetically easy to sound out. For example: Bob put on a hat.
Look for 'Red Words' in the storybooks you share together; the more your child sees and uses red words the easier they will be to read and write.
We now have access to RMEasimath- an online math tool!
We encourage you and your child to engage with the RMEasimath website. Click the picture below to open to the RMEasimath website. We've had access to computers at school and the children have thoroughly enjoyed working through the skills and gaining points. We are so impressed with their progress so far and believe that this will consolidate what they have learned so far and provide them with healthy challenges.
It's easy to log on to RM Easy Maths! Just click the link below, type in your password and off you go!

Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures. If you go to the park or beach, take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore. Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that you and your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos also or even draw some pictures. We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!
We welcome a £1 voluntary contribution towards class
funds each week. This helps with the purchase of
exciting resources for crafts, cooking ingredients and
the funding of special events and end of term celebrations!
