Welcome to Reception September 2021
Welcome back to the start of a brand-new term - Summer 2
We are so excited for this half term and all the fantastic opportunities the children will have. We will be continuing to explore lots of exciting activities within our indoor and outdoor learning environment based around the fantastic author Julia Donaldson and her story ‘Sharing a Shell’. Out topic for this half term is 'The Seaside'. For further information about this half terms topic please see the attached newsletter and medium term plan.
As we move through this next half term we will be further developing our Literacy and Numeracy skills whilst also having lots of opportunities to develop our understanding of the world, our friendships and creativity. We will also be developing our physical skills in our PE sessions with Hayley.
Within the Early years we value the importance of working as a team with you at home. Please communicate with me via our seesaw app. I will regularly update this app so you can see some of the exciting things that your children have been up to. Please can I remind you about the importance of completing tasks at home with your child, alongside completing your reading and signing your child’s diary or commenting to let me know how reading is going at home.
Homework and new reading books will continue to be sent out to you on a Friday. Please can you return the homework to school on a Monday but you can keep your reading books for slightly longer, until Wednesday. Please can you continue to ensure that your child’s school bag is in school daily so they have something to put all their work in to bring home.
You are welcome to send your child with their own snack whilst we are not providing a snack due to Covid-19. However, we are receiving the free fruit, so your child is welcome to have this as their daily snack as well.
If you have any concerns or information you want to share with us, please send a message on Seesaw and we will reply as soon as possible.
Mrs Harding (Teacher), Miss Burney (Teaching Assistant), and Mrs Wardle (Teaching Assistant)
