Welcome to Reception - The Royals class
Welcome to the autumn term
We will start by establising class routines and expectations. Children will build friendships and develop their play skills. They will be taught to "choose it, use it, put it away" as part of respecting our classroom.
We will learn about stories such as Kipper's Toybox, Detective Dog and Stickman. We will retell them in a variety of ways.
As the term progresses we will observe the changing seasons.
In maths we make weekly visits to Numberland. We invite children to bring in something each week to represent the focus number. You can be as adventurous with this as you like.
In phonics we will learn learn sounds and sight words. We will ;learn to blend and split three sounds in words to help us with reading and writiing.
Please make sure you read regularly at home – it really does make so much difference to your child’s attainment.
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.
