Reception 2018 - 2019

 

 Teacher: Miss H Ledsham

Teaching Assistant: Mrs R Green 
 

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we will keep you up to date with the children's learning and share important information, events and photographs with you.  We aim to provide a wonderful learning environment for the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage that is full of nuture, fun and engagement. 

 

Communication

Please tell the team if you have any worries or concerns.  We are always available to talk about your child, their learning, progress and well-being.  We look forward to getting to know you and your child as they begin their first year half term in school.

 

Our Topic this term is 'People Who Help Us' linking to our PWP book this half term, 'Lost and Found'.

 

This half term we will learn the story of 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. We will learn how to retell the story to support the children's oral retelling and understanding of a familiar story.   The children will also complete activities related to the story such as making boats and exploring different sea creatures in the small world.  We also have a new Role Play area of a 'Post Office', which links in with our current story and our new topic.

Our Learning

The children will also develop others skills such as designing and painting, playing Garage and Car Wash outside as well as reading a variety of fiction and non fiction books in our indoor and outdoor reading Den.

In Maths the children will be learning teen numbers and how to work out 1 more and 1 less than any given number.  In Shape Space and Measure children will be learning to name and recognise 3D shapes as well as learning about money and how we can use this in different situations.

 

The Way, the Truth and the Life

The RE scheme we follow at St Luke's Catholic Primary School is 'The Way, The Truth and The Life, which is taught in every class.  This term we will be learning about 'Gods World', as well as having worship time and prayers embedded  into our daily routine.

 

PE

PE is currently in the hall on either on a Thursday morning or a Friday morning.  Please keep you child's PE bag in school on these days.  We are currently learning how to do Fundamental Skills this term.

 

Reading Books

Books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday.   Please make sure you are reading with your child at home and make a comment in their reading diary.  If you wish you keep a book a little longer you can keep the book until the next Friday or Tuesday.

 

Not forgetting to mention....

Please ensure that your child bring a named water bottle into school everyday and if you haven't done so already, please could you provide your child with a pair of wellies to keep in school for the year.  We will be using the field aspart of our outdoor classroom regularly and want the children to be prepared!

 

Assessment and Learning Journeys

To document our learning in Reception, we use the online learning journey 'Learning Book'.

You can view your child's learning at any time, on any device, using your email address and password that you were given at the beginning of the year. We can reset this at any time, if needed!  The website address is www.learningbook.co.uk

Not only can you view your child's learning but you can also add in your own images and comments to share what learning has been taking place at home. We love celebrating these moments in school and they demonstrate the progress that your child is making.

 

Kind regards

Miss Ledsham
