Reception 2022 - 2023

Mrs Wheatcroft

Welcome to our Reception page!

I hope you had an enjoyable half term. The children had worked so hard and they were all ready for a break.

Our Little Wandle Phonics sessions are going really well and I love to hear you telling me how they are noticing letters in the environment, sounding out words and telling you things that begin with the sounds we have been learning. 

Our Mastering Number sessions are well underway and the children are very happy to see the Numberblocks feature in many of our lessons!

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. They can wear the trainers/pumps that you send them to school in as we don't need to change shoes for PE.

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 be sending homework books home. This will consist of a grid with enough activities to do one per week until the end of term. Activities can be done more or less frequently than weekly and 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 with supporting information and links to the Numberblocks episodes mentioned 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. 

It has been lovely to see so many of you at our parent meetings and to share so many positive comments about your children.
