Congratulations

Reception Children!

 We are so proud of all of our children's efforts and achievements both at home and school during their time in Reception.

We think you all deserve a virtual certificate for your brilliant learning.

                 

Mrs Cooke and Miss Freeman really enjoyed meeting our Reception children via TEAMs video call and are very much looking forward to them joining Year One, in September.

We would like to wish all of our Reception children and their families a very happy summer break.   

Sending you lots of happy wishes 

from

 Mrs Duffill, Mrs Baggaley and the Reception Team

Supporting Your Child With Phonics:

We have created a PDF called 'Supporting Your Child With Phonics' to help provide parents with an overview of the stages of learning in phonics. 

 The Department for Education have started uploading daily phonics lessons to the Letters and Sounds YouTube Channel.  You may like to use this in conjunction with the other resources provided.  The YouTube Channel breaks the learning into 3 sections, Reception, Year 1 and Learning to Blend. Please select the level you feel is appropriate for your child.  [Please note, that these lessons look at alternative pronunciations of graphemes within 'tricky words' rather than using pure 'word recognition' strategies.  Please use the approach that is best for your child.]

 Click here to view Phase 5 graphemes, if you feel your child is secure with Phase 2 and 3. Click here for a Phase 2,3 & 4 Tricky Word Mat. Click here for a Phase 5 Tricky Word Mat.

Please click on this link here to read again about our 7 areas of learning and how to continue to support your child with daily reading.

Don't forget that you can go onto Phonics Play, who have temporarily given free access to a range of phonics games, to support children in developing their phonics skills:  https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Celebrations!

ur Reception children have had great fun in school and at home with our learning activities linked to our Celebrations topic.  We shared stories including 'Kipper's Birthday' by Mick Inkpen and 'The Scarecrows' Wedding' by Julia Donaldson. 

The children have been busy planning parties as well as thinking about how they can help others.  They have enjoyed making model scarecrows as well as musical instruments.

               

Outdoor Learning at Home!

Find ideas to try Outdoor Learning activities to do at home on our webpage.

Pirate Topic!

Our Reception children who are learning at home and those learning in school, have been having great fun with our pirate topic!  They have been imagining what it would be like to be a pirate and even creating their own pirate ships and treasure maps. Using their clever phonics skills and imagination, they have been writing a message in a bottle too.
