Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Summer Term 2017

  

 

Welcome back after the Easter holidays! We hope you all had a restful two weeks!  As always, we are delighted with the way our children have settled back into school life and are coming into class with increasing independence. They are enjoying learning new things and they are all taking this in their stride. We couldn't be more proud.  We would like to thank you for your continued support in your child's learning.  

 

This half term we will be learning all about mini beasts and 'Where my Wellies take me'.  In Religious Education we will be learning about Pentecost and new beginnings.

 

In Mathematics we are concentrating on numbers 1-20 - recognising them, putting them in order, counting objects and finding one more or one less than numbers up to ten.  We will begin to look at simple addition and subtraction, as well as doubling and halving numbers to 10. We are also looking at simple shapes and their properties and exploring shapes in our environment. We will be looking at measures - time, capacity, length and weight.

 

In Phonics we are focusing on 'special friends' and reading and writing words containing them.  We will be concentrating on sentence building and children will be completing a 'daily sentence' each day.  We will focus on tricky words this term and these will be sent home for the children to practise at home.

 

We are encouraging children to become independent in Reception and so we ask that children begin to come into class on their own to self register (hang their leaf on our welcome tree), hang up their coat, change their library book, put away their book bag and belongings and settle on the carpet.  However, we have an open door policy at St. William of York and if you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to speak to one of the members of staff.  

 

Our Reception Summer Uniform is the same as nursery. Our Foundation Stage uniform has been carefully chosen to ensure practicality, safety and to instil independence in our youngest children.

Our Summer uniform:

White polo shirt

Purple school sweatshirt

Purple school ‘PE’ shorts

BLACK velco trainers, plimsole pumps or shoes

Black socks

 

Don’t forget PE will be taking place on a Thursday; our children will begin to get changed for PE this half term so will need to have a  school PE kit in school please.  You could begin to support your child in becoming independent by encouraging them to get dressed into their uniform every morning, including shoes!

 

We ask that children bring their book bag, reading book and reading record (yellow book) into School daily. Children will read to a teacher at least once a week, but there will often be opportunities to read again throughout the week! Please sign the yellow reading record every time you read with your child as this helps us to understand how your child is reading at home.  Please try to read with your children every night.

 

As always we welcome parents, family members or carers into our Reception class to share with us any information about your child or milestones that they have achieved at home and we have 'Ask me about' slips that you can fill out and hand to a member of staff.   Photographs of significant events or home learning can also be emailed to Miss Whyte or Miss Barnes to be shared on the big screen in class. Our email addresses are: barnesn.swoy@schools.sefton.gov.uk or whytek.swoy@schools.sefton.gov.uk

 

Snack Money is £1.50 per week or £7.50 for the first half-term or £19.50 for the whole of the Summer Term.  This money goes towards providing your child with a healthy snack daily and for buying resources such as baking materials, craft materials and additional items linked to our topic.  We ask that this is given in a named envelope preferably on a Monday.  Envelopes will be available at school if necessary.

 

Our Topics for the Summer Term are Minibeasts, Where my Wellies take me, Dinosaurs and Under the sea

 

Thank you for your anticipated support and we look forward to another enjoyable and exciting term in Reception!

Miss Whyte, Miss Barnes and Mrs Ledson

Musical Patterns

This week in mathematics we are learning all about repeated patterns. We have looked at patterns in nature and in our environment. We have explored continuing and making patterns with number, shape and colour. We have also made patterns with sounds and music!
