In Maths this term, we are focusing on place value, addition, subtraction, using White Rose. We will also be taking part in the mastery of maths programme.
In our afternoon sessions, we will be continuing with our topic and creating puppets and practise some basic circus acts. For Science we will be learning about materials (wood, plastic, metal) and their properties.
In ICT, we are learning all about internet safety using Purple Mash, and learning how to use the computer correctly.
Every Wednesday afternoon, we will be doing outdoor learning so please ensure the children wear appropriate clothing and have suitable footwear.
Thank you for your continued support with the children's learning at home - please keep up reading every day and record reading daily.
There is opportunity for your child to write a book review in their reading record when they have completed a book (Before or after they have completed their AR Book Quiz in school). When your child reads in school, it will be recorded in a reading folder in the classroom, the reading record will still be checked daily, so please continue to use it for communication about reading.
On the back cover of the reading record, you will find your child's Sumdog login. We would like Sumdog practice to be completed for at least 30 minutes a week.
Class Dojo will be used for home-school communication alongside email. You will be able to view the class story where reminder messages and class information will be posted.
Your child will be able to login using their individual QR code that has been sent home or use the "home login instructions" that have been sent to each parent via ClassDojo.
If you would like to come and have a talk to me about what is happening in class, please email me - email@example.com or contact me via ClassDojo.
Thank you for your support,
Reception is the final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. During their time in Reception, children's learning activities and experiences continue to be underpinned by the seven areas of learning and development set out in the EYFS Statutory Framework (2021). All seven areas are important and interlinked. There are three prime areas of learning which are crucial building their capacity to learn, form positive relationships and thrive. These three prime areas are:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
There are a further four areas of learning known as the specific areas of learning, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. These are:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
During the Reception year, children will spend a greater amount of time receiving adult directed teaching in Literacy and Mathematics. As part of this, children will receive a daily phonics and maths meeting session, in addition to the adult directed literacy or maths activity.
The EYFS also sets out Characteristics of Effective Learning which encourage children to develop positive learning behaviours. Through the schools values we endeavour to support children into becoming resilient, happy and resourceful members of the community.
