Reception

Summer Term 2019

Welcome back to Reception, we hope you all had a good Easter break

 Teaching and Learning

 

Communication and Language and Literacy

We will be focusing on improving our handwriting and letter formation, phase3 letter sounds and using our phonic knowledge to help us write short sentences. The children will continue writing for a variety of different purposes.

Mathematical Development

The children will be continuing our work on understanding and representing numbers up to 20 and beyond, we will be using mathematical language such as more, less, addition and subtraction and exploring shapes, patterns, and different types of measures.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World

The children will be learning about:

·         Growing

·         Keeping Healthy

·         Minibeasts

·         Boats and Under the Sea

Expressive Art and Design

The children will be using a variety of different techniques and tools linked to the planning during the week and they will be encouraged to follow rhythm and imagination.

Physical Development

The children will be increasing their skills in dance and games, with a focus still on fine and gross motor skills.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

The children will have a variety of circle time and talking opportunities. We will also recap behaviour and rules and begin to talk about independence and asking for help when they need it.

All activities are planned to help the children develop skills in all areas, and we observe and listen to them to monitor their progress and plan the next step. Please ask your child about what they have been learning in Reception. You can also help by telling us about your child’s interests and achievements outside the Reception Class by using Tapestry. Tapestry is the online journal that we use in Reception to record all the learning and fun of children’s early years education. Parents are also able to upload observations onto Tapestry at https://tapestryjournal.com/.

Please contact Mrs Seccombe in the School Office if you have any problems logging into your Tapestry account. We will be continuing with ‘Focus Children’ and you will soon be given a sheet to fill in and send back to school.

Children need to have a PE bag, which contains their PE kit (shorts, T-shirt and Plimsolls). Please can these be clearly named and kept in school. We will send them home at the end of every half term so that they can be washed. PE will go back to being taught on a Thursday morning.

Books will continue to be changed on a Monday and a Thursday and we will be monitoring how many times your child reads at home so please make sure that you are writing in their reading record books.

Letter sound sheets, maths activities and other challenges will continue to be sent home, complete them and bring them back to school or upload any activities onto Tapestry.

Trips and Dates for the Diary

There will be a ‘Stay and Play’ session on Tuesday 21 May everybody is welcome. 9.10am to 10.00am. Please let us know if you will be attending.

This year we will be having an Early Years Sports Morning on Friday 21June at 11.00am. This will be followed by a family picnic in the Early Years Outdoor Area (further details will follow).

Our summer outing will be to Walberswick with the Nursery Class. The provisional date is Friday 28 June and we will need lots of help so please keep this date clear in your diary. Further details will follow nearer the time.

Snack

Snack money this term is £6.10. Please can this be paid at the School Office

Sunny Days

When the sun does start to shine please make sure that the children have sun cream applied at the start of the morning and have a sunhat in School every day.

If you have any questions or problems please see either of us so that they can be dealt with quickly, we are here to help.

Thank you for your support last term. We are looking forward to a busy and hopefully warm Summer Term, with lots of outdoor activities.
