Reception

Welcome to Reception Class RD!

 

Reception Teacher: Miss Donaldson

Reception Teaching Assistants: Mrs Spragg and

Mrs Sears

 

Fantastic News! We now have 11 children in class that can write their 1st name independently.  We also have 2 Reception superstars who can write their full name without any visual prompts or help from an adult.

 

Well done Rebekah and Taylor! 

 

I can already see the improvement in the children who are practising hard at home, and the children love telling me that they've been working hard with their grownups. Let's keep up the good work and make super progress with our little superheros this year.

Phonics: Each day your child will be taught the phoneme (sounds) associated with particular graphemes (letters).  Unsure of correct pronunciation of letter phonemes? Don't worry https://www.youtube.com/user/breakthruchris will help you consolidate your child's learning at home just search for today letter.

 

Literacy: Your child will be practicing letter formations during registration when they are practising their name, 'Busy Time', Phonics lessons and 'Rainbow Time' if that is one of their targets. You can help your child greatly by developing their gross and fine motor skills. Handwriting is an important skill for success throughout schooling.  It is, however, a very complex skill.  In this article Kim Griffin has explored five essential components for handwriting and why motor skills are essential to support pencil grasp and handwriting.  Please take a few minutes to read the following link it is very informative and will help you to help your child flourish. https://www.griffinot.com/motor-skills-for-handwriting/

 

Maths: Over the next few weeks we are going to be immersed in lots of number focusing on number recognition and counting/counting out amounts accurately. Sing lots of number songs with your child, play number games, look for numbers in your everyday environment and don't forget to use the numbers in your child's home pack to consolidate their learning. 

 

Can they:

  • Recognise 
  • Order
  • Match number to quantity 
  • Tell you which number comes before/after a number you give them?
