Reception

Welcome back to Spring term. Our topic this term will be ‘Farm and Zoo’.

 

We are going to be looking at animals around the world and their similarities and differences.

Reception Class will be reading the stories 'A Squash and a Squeeze, Dear Zoo and The Tiger Who Came to Tea'.

 

Using new information about animals and our learning experiences, we will aim to write a descriptive poem about an animal of our choice.

 

In the role play area we have set up a child initiated 'Animal Salon' and will be busy developing our fine motor skills, using our emergent writing to take orders, whilst using mathematical data recording skills to tally animals who visit/our friend's favourite animal.

 

 

This term we are also excited to be taking part in a project. See below. 

 

Nursery and Reception class will be taking part in the ‘Effective Early Learning Programme’ at Tredegarville Church in Wales Primary School, Cardiff. The aim is to evaluate and raise the quality of early learning available to children within our setting.

 

During the process, observations of a sample of children and adults will be made. Photographs will be taken to support the work. Confidentiality will be highly respected throughout and individuals will not be named.

 

If you would like any further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Nicholls (Nursery Class teacher) or Miss Burman (Reception Class teacher).

 

Reminders

  • Book bag days are displayed under the Reception shelter. 

 

  • Change of clothes: Please bring a spare full change of clothes everyday to school, along with a pair of named wellington boots.

smiley Welcome to all new Reception children smiley

 

Hello all, we hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to welcoming back the children and meeting some new faces. 

 

The first half term we will be spending lots of time getting to know each other and finding out about the children's interests. We will be  learning to interact with our new friends, develop our independence skills and settle into new routines. 

 

We will be accessing the garden area most days and in all weathers to have the opportunity to develop the children's physical skills. We have waterproof clothing at school but it would be useful for your child to bring in a pair of wellies to keep in school and a change of clothes. Please make sure all uniform, bags, coats, spare clothes etc are labelled as it helps the children to identify their belongings.  

 

Snack money is £1 per week and is usually taken on a Monday.

 

 

Many thanks
