On this web page we will be putting lots of information about all the exciting things we will be doing this year.
We are very lucky and have lots of adults who will be working in Reception this school year.
The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play. There are a number of ways you can help your child to learn and make progress:
We believe that parents and / or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your child’s education in school.
Our Reception classroom is carefully laid out to allow children to access the seven areas of learning through self directed play, allowing adults to support and extend their learning alongside them. Each classroom has the following areas, with challenges that link to children's current learning and interests.
Children in Reception have daily access to the outdoor area, which includes the following areas;
Elderberry Class– Friday
Holly Class – Thursday
We suggest that you send a named PE kit into school at the beginning of each term. We will send it back home at the end of each half term for washing.
Homework books will be sent home every Friday and we ask you to return the books by Wednesday of the following week.
Please support your child with the reading the instructions, however try to encourage your child to do the work themselves.
Reading books will be changed weekly. Please remember to sign your child's reading record every time your child reads.
Top Tips for reading at home:
We are lucky to have Mr Muncaster in school every Tuesday to teach your child songs and to provide fun musical activities.
Every Wednesday morning we go out in small groups in the local area for a walk. The mini bus takes us usually to Middleton Woods but throughout the year we do go to different places based on the interests of the children and linked to our learning topics. For example, we have also visited the farm and got to see lots of animals. You will be asked to sign a consent form for this trip when your child starts in Reception.
