Reception 2018 - 2019

Mrs Wheatcroft

Welcome to Reception!

What an exciting first few days we have all had, meeting old friends and making new ones!

Our featured author this half term is Julia Donaldson. We love her stories and it's always hard to choose which is our favourite!

This half term we will be looking at rhyme and alliteration in Phase 1 phonics and at individual letters in Phase 2 using the Jolly Phonics scheme. A description of the actions, with sound effects, are attached! We will have focused phonics sessions every day for 20 mins in our classroom. 

In Maths we will be looking at Counting and Recognising Numbers, which we will do in lots of different ways across many areas of the classroom during our 'busy time' activities, as well as during some whole class teaching times. 

We will begin our PE sessions in a few weeks time. Thank you if you have sent in kit already. This can stay on the children's pegs and I will let you know when our first session will be. This term it will be on Thursday mornings, but kit can stay in school all week. 

We are lucky to have lots of adults to support all the children in Reception, so you will see different people on different days. Names to become familiar with are: Mrs Boggiano, Miss Cobden, Mrs Ross, Mrs Weeks (previously known as Tara by our pre-school children!) and Mrs Wood. Mrs Bailey will be in Reception instead of me on Wednesday afternoons. 

We are all enjoying getting to know your lovely children. Please remember, no question is a silly question, and if you need to talk to any of us for any reason catch us in the morning or check if we are free at the end of the day.
