What are we learning this half term?

Our topic this half term is All About Me which helps us to get to know your child. It will cover aspects such as “me”, my family, my home and my school.

Please could you bring a photograph of your child as a baby by Monday 19th September, that we can keep, 6x4 / 5x7 are perfect sizes, nothing too big!!  Please put their name on the back. Thank you.

Welcome to Reception

Coming into School

The children come into school independently from 8.35am, all children must be in class by 8.50 for registration at 9 o’clock.

Milk Money

Children who wish to have milk should bring 90p in a named envelope and place it in the ‘Milk box’ on the trolley each Monday morning. (If they have milk they do not need a separate juice for snack time.) 

Snacks and Drinks

We have children this year with serious nut allergies. It is vital that nuts must not be brought into school. Snacks and drinks must be named and placed in the appropriate boxes by the children so they know what their snack is. Please do not leave it in their lunch box as they get confused. We have a Healthy Schools Award so please do not bring chocolate or sweets. (Only one snack is necessary.) There is fresh fruit available which we eat in an afternoon.

Water bottles

These are provided by the school and should be taken home daily, washed and filled with fresh water. Please could we stress that only water goes in these bottles. If you lose it, replacements can be purchased from the office for approximately £1.

Dinners

Please tell your child each day whether they are on school dinners or packed lunches so we can fill the register in correctly. If they choose packed lunches please remember no nuts.  Also, put a separate juice bottle in the packed lunch box, because water bottles go outside on the trolleys.

P.E. Kit

P.E. kits should be brought in and kept in school.  They will be sent home half-termly to be washed and checked.  Our PE days are Mondays.  No ear-rings are to be worn on PE days.  After October half-term, your child will need an Outdoor PE kit, (plain black track suit and trainers.)

Reading Folders

Once parents have attended the reading meeting, (see later notes)

reading folders should be brought to school every day. Inside should be their reading book and reading record book. After the Reading Meeting your child will also be bringing home a Letters and Sounds book, keywords folder and later in the year, a spelling book, which should also be kept in their reading folder.

 Wellies

We use the outdoor environment whatever the weather!! Please send a named pair of Wellies in with your child as soon as you can!

Our Class Golden Rules

Golden Rules

You will soon be hearing about our Golden Rules, if you haven’t already! These are class rules that we make to help keep us safe and happy in school. We have a whole school house points system to help us follow the rules and prizes are awarded for children following them. Have a read through and see if you can help your child to learn and follow them.

We will keep our hands and feet to ourselves.

We will be kind to each other.

We will look after the things we use.

We will line up smartly.

We will listen carefully.

We will always try our best with our work.

We will tidy up quickly and quietly.

We will walk around school.

We will put our hand up to speak on the carpet.

Routines

In the morning our priority is to ensure a successful start to the day for all our children. We are so pleased with the way they have come in independently. Thank you for letting them put their own water bottle on the trolley and named snack and drink in the snack boxes, so that they know what snack they have. It makes snack time easy and pleasurable. If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s learning or any concerns please do not hesitate to speak to us at the end of the academic day. For urgent matters please come into school before the day commences at 8.35 am (except Friday mornings when all staff have a meeting) or ring school to make an appointment.

We set up the outdoors ready for the children to use in school. Please do not let your child play on the grass or with equipment before and after school.

Celebration Assemblies

These assemblies are for parents, grandparents and carers to see the work we have done in school. They are held every other Friday, in the hall at 2.40 pm. FS and KS1 are once week and KS2 the next. Please come if you are free.  If your child is showing work we will notify you the week beforehand to let you know.

What are we learning this half term?

Our topic this half term is Growth and Change. It will cover aspects such as Plants, How we have changed, and Dinosaurs.

Our Literacy text will be ‘How to grow a Dinosaur’. We will be drawing story maps to retell the story. Writing seed packets, speech bubbles and our own stories.

In Reading we will be encouraging children to develop their fluency and reading sentences independently. Ensuring that they are reading their keywords on sight. Our aim is to ensure for every 10 words a child reads they should be reading 9 of these correctly.

In Writing we will be continuing to develop our sentence writing. This will include spelling our keywords correctly. We are focusing on sentence structure and the features that we need to include in a sentence: capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.

Mathematics we will continue to:

* Recognise numbers securely to 30, and for some children to 100.

* Counting forward and backward to 30.

* Counting in 10s and 5s.

* Addition and Subtraction

* Addition and Subtraction problem solving

* Weight

* Measuring – how tall, wide and long items are. using cubes to measure them (non-standard units)

EARLY Years Curriculum and also Expectations in Year 1 to Year 6

The documents below will give you some information relating to what children are expected to know by the end of each year group. The EYFS tracker will be most important to you at this stage. It will be used to assess your child throughout his/her time in our Reception class. By the end of the year we are aiming to help your child meet the 'Early Learning Goals' in each of the different areas of learning.
