welcome to Reception
Welcome to Reception
Class Teacher: Miss Flude
Learning Assistants: Mrs Beard
Our topic this term is Superheroes. The key text we will be focussing on is Supertato. We will be talking about characters and retelling the story, using puppets. We will be making our own Supertato and creating our own adventures and ways to escape The Evil Pea! We will also link our Superhero topic to people who help us and ourselves. We will be exploring the work of our emergency services and talking about what makes us special and unique. This is a really fun topic that allows children to be creative, making superhero essentials such as capes, badges and masks.
We were lucky enough to have snow at school in December so we enjoyed learning outside in the snow. We then made our own snow inside and thought about how they were similar and different.

Forest School will take place on a Thursday.
Please ensure your child has wellies and a waterproof coat in school at all times.
Throughout the year we will be holding inspire workshops. These are opportunities for parents to come in and experience Maths, Phonics and English sessions. Handy tips for continued learning at home will be shared too.
Dates will be given nearer the time.
We had a visit from the animal lady. She showed us lots of African animals including a meerkat, owl, tortoise and a falcon. The children were all really brave and stroked them and asked lots of questions.
ACTIVITIES TO CONTINUE THE LEARNING AT HOME
We value the support you can give your child at home in helping to develop the basic skills of English and Maths.
In Reception, we hope that children will be engaged in continuing their learning for approximately 10 minutes per night. Most of this time will be used to read with your child and discuss what they have read. Reading stories on a regular basis helps children develop a sense of the story structure and fires their imagination.
Other learning opportunities may be practical activities such as counting, adding or solving problems e.g. how many knives and forks do I need to get for three people?
Each day, children take part in a planned phonics session, following Letters and Sounds. Children are introduced to new letter sounds and then learn how to read and write them by 'segmenting' and 'blending'. Children are also taught 'Tricky Words' and 'high frequency words'. Please speak to us, for more information about this or how you can help extend your child's learning further.
