Reception Class enjoying apparatus
This week Reception have made bird feeders. We hung them up in our woodland area for the birds to enjoy. Then had a good splash in some muddy puddles!
Thank you to all the grown ups who came to our first Reception class stay and play session. The children loved having you in class
Reception have been learning about Baptism, as part of our learning we held our own Baptism in class.
Today Reception class visited church. Father Brian showed us around and told us about the different things we could see. We had a lovely time!
The children in Reception have visited the prayer room for a lovely liturgy, where we gave thanks to God for the wonderful things he has given us.
Welcome to Reception!
We are looking forward to a busy and enjoyable year with your children. They are very excited to be part of St. Edward’s family and have settled in so well.
Reading books will be changed on a Friday. We know lives are busy but it really helps if children read on a regular basis. These books are wordless to begin with and then will become phonetically decodable to match the sounds taught in class. We ask that books are read 4 times a week, please sign your child's reading diary each time. Please leave a comment to let us know how your child gets on with each book. Please also help your child to recognise the phonics sounds and Harder to Read and Spell words that are sent home each week.
Homework will be sent at the beginning of each half term. Tasks will link to the current topic and can be done in any order. Please send in any homework completed or add photos on Tapestry.
Our PE day is Friday. Children should come in their PE kit on this day. If your child wears earrings, please could we ask that these aren’t worn on PE days.
We want your children to feel happy in class and to enjoy to coming to school. If there is anything at all that is worrying them, or worrying you please pop in and see us, either at drop off or pick up, or at one of our half termly drop in sessions for parents.
