Welcome to Reception Class Page!
Reception Newsletter Spring Term 1 - January 2019
Happy New Year to you all. Thank you very much for all our lovely cards and presents – they were very much appreciated!
We have welcomed the children back to a very busy and exciting term. Our theme will be ‘People who help us’ from Firefighters to Nurses, Police Officers to their very own teacher. We have selected a range of imaginative activities to spark discussions about helpful people in everyday life. We have planned visits from professional fire fighters, police officers and a vet this term, we are sure the children will be very excited! There will also be a trip to the local library which we will inform you about nearer the time.
The children will be hearing about ‘The Jolly Postman’ and learning about postcards, letters and many more forms of writing.
All seven areas of learning - Literacy, Mathematics, PSED, Physical Development, Communication and language, Understanding the World and Expressive arts and design, will be covered through this topic. As last term, you will receive weekly planning. We will be delighted to read your comments and observations about your child’s learning. These are an important element of our partnership with you.
Alongside all our learning is our complete immersion in a Mindful approach to school life. The children will use all their senses and deep breathing to harness the full potential of a calm and focused brain.
Please remember to send PE kits back to school. In PE, this term it will be doing gymnastics, using the mats and learning about directions, safety and travel. May we politely remind everyone to make sure all clothes and PE kits are clearly labelled.
A few toys, sweets and coins made their way into school last term. Please remind your children that they are not allowed to have these in school unless, for instance, we have a special toy day.
