Reception 2022 - 2023

Mrs Wheatcroft

Welcome to our Reception page!

I hope you had an enjoyable Easter break. 

We are very excitied to have Dinosaurs as our theme this half term! The children have shared what they know already about dinosaurs and are looking forward to finding out more dinosaur facts. Our book to support this topic is Gigantosaurus by Jonny Duddle. The children have helped some dinosaur babies to hatch out of their eggs and are going to help them learn how to be safe and sensible and how to be a good friend.

Our Little Wandle Phonics sessions are going well and the children are making great progress and really applying their phonic knowledge in their writing based activities.

In our Mastering Number sessions this half term we are counting larger collections of items and thinking about double numbers and how this can help us to recognise odd and even numbers.

We will continue to have PE every Tuesday and the children can still come to school in their PE kit on this day each week. 

Thank you for your photos and comments on Tapestry. The children love seeing themselves on the big screen in the classroom when we share photos of what they have been doing, both in and out of school. 

I will continue to send homework books home.  This will again consist of a grid with enough activities to do one per week until the end of term. Activities can be repeated as often as you like. Books will be taken form their book bags every Thursday and returned every Friday. A copy of the homework grid can be found in the files section below. 

The children are doing so well in their Guided Reading sessions and are very proud to be bringing books home to read to you. Please keep sharing these books with your child over the weekends, just for a few minutes each time: we don't expect you to be reading the whole book each time.
