GENERAL INFORMATION

PE & GAMES - The children in the Reception classes will have a games lesson each week on the Wednesday and a PE lesson each week on the Friday. We ask that all the children bring a PE kit into school and leave it in school for each half term. At the end of each half term the kit will be sent home for washing. The children should have a t-shirt, shorts or joggers and a pair of sports shoes in their PE kit. We kindly ask the all clothing and kit bags are labelled clearly with the children's names.


HOMEWORK- The children in the Reception Class will be given a homework folder to bring home each week. In the folder the children will have a reading book and a small homework book. Please enjoy your child's reading book with them. Look at the pictures and text & discuss the story with your child. There will be a short piece of homework in the little homework book which is linked to your child's reading book. We will also sometimes send home activities that are linked to the work that we have been doing in class that week. We ask politely that you support your child with their homework as your support at home really makes a difference to your child's learning and will reinforce everything we are doing in school. We ask that all homework folders are brought back in to school on the Monday each week.
******************************
The children in the reception classes will be introduced to all of the Jolly Phonics sounds. When we have introduced all the sounds your child may have some tricky words and word boxes sent home. When working with your child on the word boxes please encourage your child to sound out and blend the sounds together to read the words. The tricky words are words that your child needs to gain sight recognition of. Have a go at playing match with the words or hide them for your child  find to make learning these words more fun.
*************************************


LIBRARY BOOKS - The children in the Reception classes will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week where they will be able to choose a library book to bring home. This will be sent home in a library folder each week. Please enjoy your child's chosen book with them. We ask that all library folders are brought back in to school on Thursday or Friday each week. Unfortunately we will not be able to change your child's library books if books and folders are not returned to school.

SNACK MONEY - The children in the Reception classes will be provided with a healthy snack each morning to go with their milk. Snack money is £4 per half term and we would be very grateful if at the beginning of each half term, the money could be sent in an envelope with your child's name on and given to the office.

FOREST FARM SCHOOL- all children in the reception classes will have a chance to take part in a block of Forest School sessions starting in September 2014. As it is not possible to take all the children at the same time,  the children will be taken in groups of 15 once a week to forest farm, where they will have the opportunity to explore the natural environment and take part in lots of fun outdoor activities. At the end of the block of sessions the children will help to build a camp fire and cook marshmallows on it. Sessions will run on Wednesday afternoons and you will be sent a letter when it is your child's turn to take part in the sessions. Please remember to dress your child in a lovely warm coat, hat and scarf on the days that they will be taking part. We will provide wellies and waterproofs. 
 

If you have any questions, concerns or worries about your child then please do not hesitate to come and speak to the class teacher. We are always here to discuss any issues and we are normally available in the classroom at the end of the day or will certainly be able to make an appointment to meet with you. 
 
 

 

 

Our topic is At The Beach if you have any books or artefacts that are relevant to our topic please bring them in to share with us.
