Hello from Red, Blue and Green Class! In September, we become big children by starting school full time. We enjoy making new friends and learning about how to be effective learners. We love to learn through play and we help our teachers plan exciting learning experiences. We have “Big Ideas” about how we want our classroom to look and topics we want to learn about. We have exciting and inspiring learning environments, inside and outside, which we have access to all day.
Every morning, we count how many children are in, talk about the weather and choose a special person from each class. Very soon we will begin learning new sounds and words so we can take home a reading book and a library book. In November we will bring home 'Monster Maths' challenges to share and complete with our parents.
We enjoy taking part in whole school events, such as assemblies and celebrations, and will perform in front of the school at Christmas time and our class assembly at the end of the academic year. Our parents often come in to see what we are learning and how they can help us at home, for example Family Phonics, Maths events and other showcases.
We love coming to school each day and finding out new things!
Our teachers are:
Blue Class - Mrs Swift, supported by Mrs Lacey and Mrs Graveson.
Green Class - Mrs Wells, supported by Miss Cary and Mrs Jeffries.
Red Class - Mrs Dixon and Miss Marchington, supported by Mrs Appleton, Mrs Joseph and Mrs Street.
Parent Phonics Workshop
We hope you have found the phonics workshops useful this week and will be asking for your feedback on them shorty.
Please take time to look at the short video clip 'How to say your sounds' using the link below.
Thank you for attending Parents Evening at the beginning of Term 2. Teachers gave out some useful documents to help you with your child's learning at home.
Click on the links below to download a copy. Included is the list of Early Learning Goals that children are expected to reach by the end of their Reception year to meet a Good Level of Development.
To find out more about the Early Years Curriculum take a look at the 'What to expect, when?' document.
Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Remember to look at all the lovely things your child is doing on Tapestry. We would love for you to add things on to Tapestry as well. It would be great to hear and see the things they are doing at home.
