We are going to be learning all about why we are special and what makes us unique. Help us with our topic by practicing routine tasks such as brushing your teeth and talking about your family. Please send in any family photos you have so we can talk about them in class.
Personal, social and emotional development.
We will be:
Working hard to settle into reception by thinking about our own class rules and making new friends and thinking about our needs and feelings.
Comunication, language and literacy.
We will be enjoying listening to a variety of stories, rhymes, songs and poems.
We will be learning to: Interact with others and take turns in conversations. Hear and say initial and final sounds in words.
Writing our own name and know that print conveys meaning and how it is read.
Reading Books and Homework
The most important thing about your child doing homework is that they use their skills
learnt in class to complete it. Please support your child in understanding what is
expected of them for the homework. Promoting independence in doing their writing
and maths homework will help them going into key stage 1.
Please continue to read with your child at home, it really does make a difference and
we can see this coming through when we read with them at school. It is important that
you bring their reading books back so we can regularly change them.
Don’t forget about #30 things! Miss Pashby will be giving rewards for those children that
have completed them all, and good examples could end up displayed in our hall!
