Our Reception classes were surprised this week with a very special attendance award: CAKE!
Mrs Comber said, "I am so proud of all of the Reception children for coming to school everyday!"
Turner class really enjoyed their surprise attendance cake! Miss Baker was surprised too!

After cutting the cake into 29 pieces, we enjoyed our cake in the garden.
We would like to take a moment to thank you for sharing your positive comments and contributing to your child's online learning journal.
We have loved the opportunity to share with you all of the exciting learning opportunities your child has had in Reception this year so far.

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.
Learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, it can happen anywhere.
A child or young person’s everyday routine offers many opportunities and experiences to practise and apply their numeracy skills in real and meaningful ways. There are many ways that you can build learning activities into everyday routines to support your child’s numeracy skills. Below are some simple ideas to build numeracy skills into everyday activities:
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!
