Reception Class 2022 - 2023

Miss Clarke

Welcome to Reception's Class Page!

In Reception, we are made up of 14 very intelligent and inquisitive reception children! In Reception we have Miss Clarke, your class teacher as well as Mrs Mckie and Miss Belford.

In our class, we absolutely love learning new things. We do this through exploring, playing, listening, singing, talking and having amazing experiences. We especially like to ask lots of questions to grow our brains! We will be sharing our experiences on Facebook so that you can see all of the exciting adventures that we have in school!

Our topic this term is 'Adventure Hunters'. During this topic, we will be learning about different types of adventures and people that go on adventures. We will be reflecting on our own adventures, and even going on some new ones! We will be getting creative by making lots of different things. It is always fantastic to see what the children are getting up to at home, so please share any exciting home experiences or milestones!

PE is on a Tuesday and Friday; please can children come to school in their PE kits every week.

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOTC) will take place on a Wednesday every 2 weeks; please can children come to school in their uniform with their LOTC clothes in a bag. They will need warm, waterproof clothing. Children will need to be fully covered for LOTC lessons and will need full length trousers, long-sleeved tops, jumpers and a waterproof coat or suit. They will also need wellies or walking shoes to protect their feet in the LOTC area. This will commence 11th January 2023.

Helping your child at home:

Reading: Please read regularly at home with your child, every day if you can and aim for a minimum of 4 times per week! Allow your child to listen to you read, as well as listening to them reading aloud to you. Children all have a reading folder with a diary and book relating to their weekly phonics lessons. Enjoy sharing exciting stories together as the children will love listening to you read to them and I am sure that you will also enjoy sharing a story with them!

Writing: Use lots of opportunities to write; shopping lists, cooking and baking, writing instructions. Any mark making is valuable to children forming their letters. Don't be afraid to get messy with it! Children love to write in shaving foam, sand, paint or anything else that is messy!

Maths: Practise counting anywhere you can. Try applying numbers to real life and daily objects. Counting steps is a great way to get children counting! Try forming letters out of natural objects such as pine cones or leaves!
