Welcome to Reception.
In RC we are very lucky to have Mrs Bainbridge working with us and in RM we have the fantastic Mrs Fitzpatrick. This term we are excited to start our first topic 'Home Sweet Home.' We will be talking about our own homes and comparing them to other peoples. We will also be looking at different types of homes such as castles and caravans. We will be painting pictures of our houses using different shapes and display these in our Shared Area - be sure to take a look!
This half term, we are going to spend time reading 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' and discuss where a bear lives.
Homework in Reception will consist of reading. This includes the reading books your child will receive from school, their library book and the Read Write Inc. sounds and words.
Every Friday, one child from each class will get to take home the Class Mascot 'Bertie Bear' for the weekend! Please fill in the book in diary format and return to school on the following Monday so that we can share your adventures with the rest of the class. We also award one child from each class as the 'Good Samaritan' and have a 'Talent' of the week too - certificates will be displayed in our Shared Area and the winner will sit on the throne in class.
We look forward to working with you and your child this year. If you have any queries or questions we are always available to talk to - just pop in and see us. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @lizmahoney @MissCrawfordSJV and access Tapestry to see all the exciting things your child is doing.
Please ensure all your child's clothing and belongings are named.
Miss Crawford and Mrs Mahoney
