Reception - Peach 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Reception 2023/2024 class page
Home Learning for Tuesday 28th November
Good morning Peach Class! Here are some more activities that you can do at home with your grown up. There are lots to choose from including maths, phonics, reading and singing. There is also a link to our '5 a day' that we do to get ourselves moving in a morning, as well as a video of the Christmas Story. The home learning sheet is at the bottom of the page, along with the CVC sheet and letter formation sheets.
Have a good day.
Mrs Thompson, Mrs Murray and Mrs Rodger
Peach Class - Your class Teachers are Mrs Thompson and Mrs Murray.
Mrs Rodger is our wonderful Teaching Assistant.
Our doors open at 8.45am, ready to start our learning at 9.00am, and home time for Reception is 3.15pm.
Our Christian Value this half term is Compassion.
Our Heartsmart principle this half term is 'Don't forget to let love in!'
This is our classroom
During the morning, we have snack time where your can have fruit, and water or milk. Your children will need to bring a water bottle into school every day, please can you ensure they are filled with water and not juice, thank you.
In Reception, we have a classroom and an outside area where we can play and explore, and there are many opportunities for you to have fun and learn.
After Christmas we will start our PE lessons. This will be on a Thursday afternoon and the children will need to come into school wearing PE kits; white polo top and black shorts.
Reading - We will read with children throughout the week, so please make sure your child has their bookbag in school every day, along with their school reading book and reading record (diary). Please re-read your child's book with them a minimum of 3 times during the week, as this helps them to build confidence and fluency with their reading.
We provide the children with a reading book matched to their phonic ability - to be read by the child, to an adult, as well as a separate book from our school library to be shared at home to help the children develop a love of reading for pleasure.
Both the phonics book, and the library book will be changed once a week - on a Friday. Please ensure both books are returned by Tuesday of each week.
If you have any questions or worries at any time, about anything related to school, please do just ask any of the Reception Team - we are all more than happy to help.
Stay safe and take care,
The Reception Team
