Reception

Welcome to Reception


Your teacher is Miss Kelly and your key workers are Mrs Foster, Mrs Byrne, Mrs McGlynn, Mrs McWilliam and Miss Colleran. 

Times of the school day
8.55am - 2.50pm

A very warm welcome to the Reception class of 2016/17! This year we will do everything we can to ensure your child makes a happy and settled start to school life. 

Our new spring topic is "Once Upon A Time." We will be looking at lots of traditional tales and building the children’s library of known stories. We will be looking at The Gingerbread Man, Jack and The Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will roughly be covering one per week.

Reminders 
Snack money is £1 per week

Dinners are ordered on Friday for the next week. Dinner menus are sent home on Wednesday and need to be returned by Friday morning. 
PE kits should be kept in school - available to buy from PrimaDonna in Marion Square. 
Homework will be given out weekly on Fridays. This will increase as the children settle in and will include spellings. 
Please read daily with your child and comment in their reading record. Making time for reading 10 minutes a day will have a huge impact on your child's progress. 

Funky Fingers
To make our fingers strong and ready for writing we do many activities in school to exercise our finger grip and shoulder strength. Some examples of these are:
Picking up objects with pegs (or tweezers, chopsticks, tongs etc)
Threading beads
Hama beads
Playing with nuts and bolts
Poking pipe cleaners into colanders 
Cutting with scissors
We also do dough disco which is very fun! Try it at home using this link https://youtu.be/i-IfzeG1aC4

Below are the 100 high frequency words in phases. Phonetically decodable words are in green, to visually represent to the children they need to apply their phonic knowledge and skills, whereas the high frequency ‘tricky words’ are in red.
