Reception Class 2022 - 2023

Miss Clarke

Welcome to Reception's Class Page!

In Reception, we are made up of 15 very intelligent and inquisitive reception children! In Reception we have Miss Clarke, your class teacher as well as Mrs Royals on a Friday.

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 every week so that you can see all of the exciting adventures that we have in school!

Our topic this term (summer 1) is 'Down on the Farm'. During this topic, we will be learning about our the jobs on the farm, the different animals, animal habitats and listening to stories linking to the topic. We will also be learning about minibeasts and the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' written by our author of the half term, Eric Carle. 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 Thursday (games) with Miss Clarke and Friday with ASM; please can children come to school in their PE kits every week on these two days.

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOTC) will take place on a Monday in week 2, 4, and 6 (24.4.23, 8.5.23, 22.5.23); 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, and a waterproof coat or suit. They will also need wellies or walking shoes to protect their feet in the LOTC area. 

Helping your child at home:

Reading: Please read regularly at home with your child, every day if you can, but aiming 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 and numbers out of natural objects such as pine cones or leaves!
