Welcome to Reception’s Class Page

2018 - 2019

Hello and welcome back to Reception’s Class page. I hope you have had a lovely summer holiday and are super excited to be coming back to school working with me in our new classroom! I have to tell you all that I have been in and out of school over the holidays and the classroom is looking amazing! I have lots of exciting things to go into it so when it is fully ready next week – I will share some pictures with you on our class blog!

Our topic this half term is
‘All about me’ we will be looking at us, our families and what makes us different to each other. If the children could bring in 1 baby photo – with their name on the back – which we could keep for the half term I would really appreciate it! I want to play a game with the children to guess who everybody is! I also want to use them as a tool to show the children how much they have grown already!

We are going to be getting very creative making portraits of ourselves, using lots of different media to make our portraits and thinking about the colours we are using for different parts of our portrait – ie) eye colour, hair colour etc.

We will continue to work on
phase 2 in our letters and sounds sessions. Some of the children are adding sounds in their writing, we want to push for more children to be ready to do this as soon as possible and to be starting to blend sounds in words in their reading books!  You can access lots of support with this on our 'Learning Zone' on the website or if you need any further questions answering; please arrange to come and have a chat!

During our Maths sessions we are going to be securing our knowledge of number – making sure we can recognise as many numbers to 20 as possible. We will start adding groups of objects together, securing our knowledge on 2D shape and starting to add vocabulary for 3D shapes to our word banks.

In Literacy, the children will be working towards adding sounds in their writing and becoming familiar with retelling with magic writing to an adult. It is our main focus to make sure the children know that their marks, letters and magic writing all means something and we want to know what it means to them!

I am so excited to see you all again and hear about the fantastic time you have all had with your families!
