Reception

 Welcome to Reception

Staff : Mrs Woodward, Mrs. Croft, Mrs Mullins and  Miss Bullen,

————————————————————————————————————

School opens at 8.45am and the doors stay open until 9.05am.  Please bring your children to the Reception doors on the Court Yard and not to the office.   Thank you for your support at home time.  The new home time routine is working very well.  Please check the bottom shelf of the lunch box trolley for lost property.

We are sending reading books home regularly.  Please read with your child at least four time a week.  Use the green planner to record when you read (just a signature will do).  Your child will then have the opportunity to become READER OF THE WEEK. Children must bring their planners in to school every day so that teachers have got access to it.

 

Children will be using Read, Write Inc to learn their phonics this year.  We have already made a start and know m, s, a, d and t.  We will also be learning the rest of the letters of the alphabet.  There is a very useful parents section on www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents that you could have a look at.  It also shows you how to pronounce sounds correctly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maths

By the end of Reception, most children should be able to: –

  • Using quantities and objects they add and subtract two single digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
  • They solve problems involving doubling, halving and sharing.
  • Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.
  • They recognise, create and describe patterns.
  • They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
