Weeks 1 and 2 - 4th September- 13th September 2019
The children have had a great start to Term 1 in Reception. They have been introduced to the daily routines in the classroom and within the wider school environment, and have spent time getting to know one another and the Reception Staff.
In Group Learning time we have focused on supporting the children to build positive relationships. By playing games that involve sharing our names and information about ourselves, the children have begun to learn each other’s names and make new friends.
Phonics and Homework
The children are now having daily phonic sessions in which they will be introduced to one letter/sound daily, as well as embedding knowledge of the previously learned sounds. Over the coming weeks, the children will be bringing home a homework sheet daily which focuses on the sound that has been introduced to them that day. There is no need to return these homework sheets to school, it is for your child to keep and work on at home.
As you will have seen, the children have also been sent home ‘Wow Cards.' These are for you to record anything amazing that your child does when they are not in school. We love sharing these special moments at school and we really enjoy hearing about what your child has been up to! If you require more ‘Wow Cards,' there is a box of them located on the wall outside Cherry Class door - please feel free to help yourself!
The children have been very busy investigating their new classrooms over the past week and a half. Please look at the photos below to see what they have been up to.
