Please don't forget to read with your child at least 3 times a week!
Welcome to Italy Class!
We are excited and passionate about our learning in Reception. Our class teacher is Mrs Wells and Miss Glackin is our teaching assistant. We also have Miss Willard on Fridays. We plan with our teacher exciting activities and our environment and we are encouraged to share our ideas. We have a large classroom and an even bigger outside area!
Our learning is celebrated with our parents and carers through our Learning Explorer books and shared through Tapestry.
We are always encouraged to move our own learning forward by developing our interests, making our own choices and being independent learners.
We love working and playing together.
We are encouraged to 'have a go' and experience success!
We learn best when we are happy!
Weekly update (w/beginning 22.3.21):
Phonics- This week we will be revisiting the blends /ch/, /sh/, /th/ and /ng/.
Maths- We are consolidating our learning from this term, firstly looking at the numbers 0-10, addition and then subtraction.
Literacy- We are learning how to write labels and captions this week.
Library- We are resuming our library visits this week. Our usual day has changed for the remainder of this term, it will be updated here once we know. Please ensure that library books are returned once a week otherwise children are unable to get new ones.
Reading- Children should be reading at least 3 times a week at home. Please use the reading record book to keep note of when you have read with your child and any comments about their reading. Whist we are in lockdown, reading is even more important to help the children apply their phonics knowledge and develop their fluency when sounding out and blending. Please continue to record any and all reading in the reading journals- this information doesn't need to be uploaded to tapestry. If you require more reading books, please email me and I will sort this out for you.
Seasonal Weather - Please can you ensure that children are coming to school with a named coat that is suitable for wet weather and a pair of welly boots that can be left at school. We will be going outside in all weathers unless the rain is extremely heavy!
Please can you ensure that children are not riding their bikes and scooters on the playground or pathways at the beginning or end of the day- we have had several near misses lately.
Please check book bags daily, whilst we use ParentMail for the majority of our communication, additional letters and information may get put in there (e.g. flu vaccination forms). You'll also find reading books/journals in there as well.
Please check that all items of clothing, water bottles, book bags and PE kits are named.
Children should only bring water into school in their water bottles- juice or squash is not permitted.
A fruit or vegetable snack is provided for the children every day but if you wish to provide an extra snack for your child you are more than welcome (fruit or vegetable based only).
There are no after school clubs this term at the moment due to Covid-19. If guidance changes, we will let you know.
If you wish to get in contact with me, please telephone or email the school office or on email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
This year PE will be taking place on a Friday. Please ensure that children have a named PE kit in school that includes: coloured PE top, shorts, tracksuit bottoms/joggers and jumper/hoodie for colder weather and suitable footwear. It would be helpful to the children if tights were not worn on PE days as it does take them a little while to get changed when they first start PE lessons. Please also ensure that earrings are taken out on PE days or children are provided with tape to cover them over. The children should be able to remove/cover earrings themselves.
