Welcome back to another action packed term in Reception.
Please take note of these important upcoming dates:
* Parent's Evenings - Monday 4th and Wednesday 6th of March
* World Book Day - Thursday 7th March
(We are not dressing up for World Book Day this year!)
* STEAM Project Presentations and Dress Up Day -
Friday 5th April
Children are encouraged to think about what they want
to be when they grow up and come to school in costume!
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for all weather. In Reception, we value the learning that happens inside and outside of the classroom and enjoy all seasons.
We would like to invite you to take part in our half termly learning projects this year.
These hands-on 'mini' projects will give your child an opportunity to explore the world around them in a fun and exciting new way. Most importantly, your child will have the opportunity to work alongside their favourite teacher... YOU!
Project 4: What do I want to be when I grow up....
What to do? = Talk with your child about what job they might want to have when they are older
Write down! = 3 interesting facts about your child's chosen profession
Dress up! = choose a costume that represents your child's chosen profession
When do we need it? = Children are invited to come to school in their costume on Friday 5th April to share their ideas with their classmates.
The children have been investigating a Crime Scene in the Reception Garden.
This year, your child will be taking part in a daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics session.
This is a very successful programme that will enable your child to read and write independently and confidently. Each day your child will learn a new sound and will be taught how to put these sounds together to read words. They will also practice writing these letters and gain the knowledge and skills to write words and simple sentences independently.
Week 1: m a s d t
Week 2: i n p g o
Week 3: c k u b f
Week 4: e l h sh r
Week 5: j v y w th
Week 6: z ch qu x ng/nk.
Your child has been given a Home Learning Book with the sounds they have already been taught. Please help your child by hearing, saying and writing the new sounds. You can also help by reading and practicing words that contain the new sounds. Please ensure your child's Red Home Learning Book is returned daily. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, don't hesitate to ask one of the reception teachers.

Have you been on to access Teach Your Monster to Read? This will help your child learn their sounds and begin learning how to blend and segment words. Great for beginning readers! Click the picture below to go to the website. You can find your child's login details in their Homework Book.
Barnaby Bear could be coming home with you!
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!
