Welcome to the Reception year group!
Please come and visit our year group page regularly for updates of what we’re getting up to whilst in school!
Our Power of Reading Book is…
This is a perfect book for the time of year as it helps to prepare children for transition and encourages them to talk about any worries or concerns that they may have.
We love The Power of Reading as it allows us to understand each book in detail as well as being able to engage in drama, art, reading, writing, maths and singing activities. It really helps to improve our comprehension skills, too!
PLEASE NAME EVERYTHING! If items are misplaced they are much easier to return if they are clearly named. This includes water bottles, lunch boxes, shoes and ALL uniform.
We have PE and our Library visit on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure that the children have their PE kit (red polo t shirt, black shorts and velcro trainers or plimsolls) in school along with their library book.
We are really enjoying using the reading caterpillar. Please ensure your child is reading with you every night.
Share the weekly class newsletter with your child and talk about their learning.
Please look on Tapestry to share learning experiences.
Buster’s Book Club!
Every Wednesday is Buster’s day!
Buster challenges us to read 15 minutes every Wednesday with someone at home that can record it on our Buster’s Book Club Bookmarks. On a Thursday morning, all of the children that meet the 10 minute target, plus extra, are counted up in the competition against the rest of the school.
After all of the results are in, we find out who wins Buster’s trophy for the week (the winner gets an extra playtime)!
