Welcome to Reception
Hello and welcome to Reception from
Miss Barnes, Mrs Grindey and Mr Emsley!
For our topic this half term we will be investigating the question 'Who helps us in Disley?' Throughout this topic we will be finding out about the people in our local community who help us and we will also be learning about the different jobs people do. We will have a specific focus each week, learning in detail about: post office workers, police, firefighters, dentists, paramedics/doctors and builders. We have some exciting visitors planned this half term and are hoping that some of our parents and families can come into school to share their expertise with us too. The children are also excited to explore their new post office role play area.
We would like to thank all parents for their valuable contributions in the children's 'I can' books this half term. It is great to see what learning the children are doing out of school and it's also wonderful to share their achievements.
In PE, we will be focusing on dance. We will be doing PE on a Friday afternoon with Mrs Bennett and Mr Henderson.
Reception Reading Afternoon Tuesday 24th September at 2:45.
Information from the session is below.
Star Assembly- This is an assembly where each class teacher chooses a child which has stood out for a particular reason. This may be using good manners, being a kind friend, showing resilience and many other things. Each Reception child will have a turn at this.
Secret Reader- This is where we invite parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties or any other family member into our class to read to the children on a Monday afternoon. A letter will be sent out to explain this further.
Jedi Writer Award- This is an award given in class by the Reception Teachers. It is awarded to a child that has been trying hard with their fine motor skills and using the correct pencil grip. The teacher’s will observe the children in handwriting lessons and choosing times and a child will be awarded on a Friday morning.
Author Award- This award will start when the children have started developing their writing skills. Children that have a go at the story writing challenge will be picked out of a hat at the end of the week and will receive a prize.
Challenges- In Reception we have many set challenges for the children to complete by choice. We have a writing challenge, fine motor challenge, phonics challenge and maths challenge. Each of these are targeted to the child’s interests. Once a child completes a challenge they will put their name into the challenge pot (the more times they do it the more chance they have of winning) and the teachers will pick out a name randomly at the end of the week.
Phonics folders- Once your child starts to learn phonics they will begin to recognise sounds and work on reading words. Your child will learn 4 new sounds a week; for each of these sounds they will be given a letter formations sheet to complete at home. If there are no new sounds in your child’s folder this will be a recap week so there is no need to worry about filling them in.
Tricky words and blendable key rings- Your child will be given a bookmark with tricky words on to learn at home. They will also be given a key ring with words to blend on.
Non- Negotiables- Please ensure that you read 3 times a week with your child and record it in their contact book. Please also complete the phonics sheets in their folders for the following Thursday. If your child completes all of their homework they will receive a reward at the end of each term.
