Ms Edge


Welcome to Reception

Class Teacher:Miss Slicker

Teaching Assistant:Mrs Zaffar

We are looking forward to getting to know and working with your child in Reception. This will be a busy and exciting half term as the children begin to settle down to the routine of school life.

Our topic this half term is All About Ourselves and we will be completing lots of different activities, both in groups with written work and in the provision, which support us in understanding the world around us.

In English, we will be reading lots of different stories including; Where’s My Teddy?, The Gotcha Smile and A Quiet Night In. There will be a large focus on our phonics work and looking at the different sounds and how the graphemes are formed. This will be built up to recognising and writing CVC words and simple sentences.

In Maths, we will be learning about the numbers 1-5 and working hard to understand how to form the numbers correctly and understanding the value of the amount. We will also be looking at how to order the numbers.

In the provision, both indoors and outdoors, there are a wide range of activities which will support the children in developing their fine and gross motor skills and their understanding of our topic. These include; using the outdoors mud kitchen, sand area and role play area as well as many more.

PE will be on a Thursday so please make sure that your child has the correct kit which is black pumps, a white t shirt and black shorts or leggings.
