Welcome to Reception - The Royals class
Welcome to your new school.
We will start the year by getting to know each other and learning the class routines and expectations. We will look briefly at the stories of Kipper’s toybox and The Little White Owl.
As the term progresses we will observe the changing seasons and link this to stories such as the Gruffalo and Stick Man.
In maths we will be learning about number sense. Each Wednesday we shall go on a magical adventure to numberland. Numberland is a special place where we learn lots about each number. You will be invited to bring in objects from home too.
In phonics we will learn to orally blend sounds to make words and split words into sounds. We will also learn letter sounds. We will also start to blend two and three sounds to make words and work on our first reading books. Please make sure you read regularly at home – it really does make so much difference to your child’s attainment.
At half-term we hope to have a special Autumn assembly where we will share a few songs and some special handmade treats. A large part of our classroom is outside, and we are continually trying to make improvements to this. Over half-term you will be set a challenge which will form the first part of our fundraising for this year.
We will finish the term with a simple traditional Christmas assembly and share some seasonal books and traditions.
As part of our early years curriculum we have free access to the classroom and also our garden. Children will need to have suitable clothing with them at all times. This includes a good quality coat to provide both warmth and a waterproof later, a pair of waterproof trousers and a pair of wellies.
All of our work is shared in an online learning journey. We use a platform called Tapestry. There staff in school and grown ups from home can share achievements of the children. Please do share special things with us from home too.
If you ever have any questions or concerns please do ask as staff in EYFS are always happy to help.
