Where should we go on an Adventure?

 

It is vital that we instil a love of reading and books in our children. 

This term, children will dive into stories that take them on adventures to far away lands and magical places.

They will join characters as they explore new countries and environments. They will sail with pirates, hunt for bears and travel into outer space. All the while, posing and answering key questions throughout the topic such as; 

 

Where can we go on an adventure? What places would you like to visit? How could we get there?

 

Is everybody's home the same? What is a home like in another country?

 

Who lives in a house like this? (animals) 
 

What is the weather today?  Is the weather and environment the same everywhere? 
 

Children will be encouraged to make links with their own experiences of travel and adventure.
They will be encouraged to share their memories of family adventures and holidays. 

We invite our families to share photographs / videos with us on Tapestry so that we can share these with your child at school. 

 

 

 

Reception are using Mathseeds!

 

 

Mathseeds teaches kids aged 3-9 the core maths and problem solving skills needed to be successful at school with fun,
highly interactive and rewarding lessons. Mathseeds combines highly structured lessons with fun motivational elements
that keep children engaged and keen to learn.

 

We will be using Mathseeds as a class at school and we strongly
encourage families to log on and use Mathseeds at home throughout the week.
As your child progresses through the lessons, their teacher will be updated on their progress and the levels will become more challenging.

 

If you require your child's log-in details, please contact their teacher! 

What is... RWI?

READ. WRITE. INC.

 

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.

 

  Sound Set 1

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.

 

 

Sound Set 2

ay - may I play?
ee - what can you see?

igh - fly high

ow - blow the snow

oo - poo at the zoo

oo - look at the book

ar - start the car

or - shut the door

air - that's not fair!

ir - whirl and twirl

ou - shout it out

oy - boy with a toy

 

 

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 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.
