Welcome to Reception!
We are having an amazing time at school. The children have settled well and are enjoying exploring our environment and topic.
A small reminder!
The P.E days for this term will be Monday and Friday each week. Please ensure your child has their pumps in school and comes in their PE kit. Following Lancashire Policy all children must not wear earrings during P.E, please ensure your child is not wearing earrings on these days.
Reading - The children will complete a guided reading sessions each week with a member of staff in school. They will bring a home reading book home on a Monday and this must be returned on a Thursday. Please ensure you read with your child each night. If you would like some support with helping your child read please fill out the form on the reading letter below.
Homework - Home will be sent on a Friday.
Our themed learning this half term is Julia Donaldson.
Throughout the half term the children will be taking part in lots of exciting activities and exploring texts by the author Julia Donaldson.

We are Reception!

Mrs Seedat, Mrs McDermott, Mrs Harrison, Miss Green and Mrs Batan, help us every day.
We have a lovely unit with lots of different equipment. We learn through our play. Outside we also have a secure, canopied play space with a sandpit, house, garden, mud kitchen and decking
Each friday homework will be sent home. We ask for your input in the homework as we love to hear what your child has been learning and doing at home. We will also include a talking homework discussing key vocabulary for the next weeks learning. This is to be done in the child's first langauge. Please take a few moments to write a comment about your child's achievements. We can celebrate this during key worker time.
Homework will be given in a homework book each friday. Phonics and maths work will be set consolidating the topics taught in class each week. All homework is be handed in by the following Wednesday.
