Our last term in Reception is going to be action packed! This term is all about supporting the children’s spiritual and moral development. Our key question this term is; Should Goldilocks say sorry? We will reflect on the idea of right and wrong and the actions of individuals. This will encourage some interesting discussions.
In Literacy we will be continuing to learn Set 3 Sounds; the alternate spelling of the sounds learnt so far. The children will be introduced to a variety of new sounds each week. Have fun looking at all the different ways you can make these sounds. Keep an eye out for any information coming home which you can always find in the Boomerang Folders.
This term the children in Reception will be encouraged to take home a reading book. These will be borrowed from our classrooms and kept in the Boomerang folders. This is a great chance for you to share a story with your child and help build a love of reading!
Please do encourage your child to read with you at home and help them with their challenges in their home learning book. We recommend 5 minutes a day and remember to make it fun!
Inside your Boomerang folders you can find some Sound Tiles. These tiles are the exact same as the magnetic letters we use at school to help us learn to segment and blend. Please use these as part of your home learning and help your child build their confidence with sounds.
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!
