Reception

Welcome to Reception


Your teacher is Miss Kelly.

Your key workers are Miss Griffiths.
Times of the school day
8.55am - 2.50pm

A very warm welcome to the Reception class of 2019/20! This year we will do everything we can to ensure your child makes a happy and settled start to school life. 


Reminders 
Snack money is £1 per week
PE kits should be kept in school - available to buy from PrimaDonna in Marion Square. 


Homework

Spellings are given out on Monday and should be practised everyday. 
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. 

Further literacy/topic/maths homework will be given out as required by the teacher.

 

Reading
Reading is a huge priority in our school. We study a new book in depth each week and base our curriculum around books and language. Reading regularly to your child will  develop their breadth of language and improve literacy skills as well as fostering a lifelong love of books. Children who are read with and read to regularly at a young age are proven to be more successful throughout school and in their adult lives. 

We encourage you to share bedtime stories with your child, hear them read, role-play known stories and share nursery rhymes. All of these strategies will support your child's language and literacy development and give them the best possible start. 
 

Our Favourite Books

Bedtime Story - The Cave by Rob Hodgson

Still image for this video
I chose to read this as our first bedtime story because it is this years BookTrust book and all the children have been given their own copy.
Watch out for the naughty bear half way through!

Talk PANTS with Pantosaurus and his PANTS song #TalkPANTS

Meet Pantosaurus - our pant-wearing Dino! He wants every child to stay safe and strong, just like him, and he's on a mission to share an important message.

Phonics

We follow the Read, Write Inc Phonics program. 

 

Red words – words that cannot be sounded out e.g. I, said, they
Green words – words that can be sounded out using our phonics
