Reception

Autumn 2020

A very warm welcome to all our new children who have joined us at Blackwell this year.  The children have already settled in well and are making new friends.  We have loved looking through their All About Me books when they have shared them with the class.  

This term promises to be a busy time for us in Reception.  We are getting to know the children, finding out what they already know and plannng exciting activities to extend their learning. 

Literacy

We have already started teaching some letter sounds and thinking of words which begin with these sounds.  The children will have a go at forming the letter, sorting objects and pictures into the correct sound and having a go at writing down the sounds we can hear in words.  You will find the sounds in your child's sound folder in their book bag and these are updated as and when we teach a new sound.  To help reinforce the learning of the letter sounds please discuss the new sounds with your child and think of some words which begin with that sound.  We will be encouraging the children to write the initial sounds they hear in words during our writing focus activities each week.

Reading

Your child will bring home a reading book on a Monday which they will need to read each day at home and then return to school on a Friday. Please refer to the book mark for hints and tips of how to support your child with reading at home. Please record the reading sessions at home in your child's reading record book.  This helps us to pick up on anything your child might be struggling with at home. We will be using the sounds we have taught to read simple words and sentences.  We will play lots of games to help blend sounds together to read the words.  

 

Maths

In maths, we will be focusing on numbers to 10 ensuring that the children are able to recognise, count and order to 10.  We will spend time on each number looking at ways that we can make that number, what it looks like and understanding the make up of each number.  For example, number 5 can be made up with a 4 and a 1 or a 2 and a 3, it is 1 more than 4 and 1 less than 6.   

Can the children spot these numbers in the local environment or around your home? 

 

Water bottles

Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle to keep in the classroom. 

 

We ask for only water in the water bottles, as any spilt juice or squash attracts ants, and we have some fruit allergies to consider.

 

Please feel free to ask for a ‘Wow Moment’ to record your child’s achievements from home. These will be shared with the class and put into their learning journal.

We hope all the children enjoy their first term in Reception.

We thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning and development.

If you have anything else you would like to discuss with us, or if you have any questions, please come and speak to us at the end of the school day.

       Please ensure all your child's belongings are clearly named.  Including hats, scarves and gloves as we enter the colder         months.
