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 Cary.
Green Class - Mrs Dixon and Miss Marchington, supported by Mrs Joseph.
Red Class - Miss Halliday, supported by Mrs Appleton.
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.
Reading in Reception
Children will start bringing reading books home, early in Term 2. These reading books will be closely matched to their Phonics ability. To give you information on how we teach Phonics and Reading at PSJ Primary we really hope you find the Reading Presentation and Phonics Lesson below both useful and informative.
Enjoy being part of your child's reading journey!
