Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to all new Reception children, parents and carers, we hope you have enjoyed your first couple of weeks with us. We are now starting to feel settled in our classrooms, we are starting to think about becoming independent, making friends and learning the routines. 

PE

In RRE and RAC our PE day is Wednesday. In RKJ our PE day is Friday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on the appropriate day and that all their clothes have their names in because as you can imagine when all the children are getting changed it is hard to keep track of what belongs to who! You can help your child in PE by encouraging them to dress and undress themselves.

Topics!

In Reception we encourage the children to express their own interests and our topics are developed around these, therefore each class may have a different theme but what we are learning will be similar. Please keep up to date with individual children’s interests via Tapestry and feel free to add your own observations. 

Homework

When we begin Phase 2 phonics we will be sending home a ‘sound book’ every Friday to show you the sounds we have learnt that week. Please practise these sounds with your child, get them to show you the action and see if they can find an object beginning with that sound.
