Reception

Summer 2 2017

Welcome back after the Easter holidays. We are now looking forward to another busy and fun packed half term.

 

Unit of Learning:

Our unit this term is called ‘Life on Earth’. 

We will also be focussing on the books Arrgghh Spider, Baby Brains and Billy’s Bucket.

To get the children ready for year 1 at the end of term we will focus on a book that is all about change and we will relate it to how we have changed from a baby to now and we will discuss the future.

 

Reports/ Good Level of Development

At the end of July you will receive your child’s end of year school report.  Alongside the report will be a print out of the levels we have given your child. 

At the end of the year we have to report to the borough regarding how many children at the end of reception have reached a ‘Good Level Of Development.’  For more information please read the attached sheet.

 

Transition from Reception to Year 1

Transition means change. Change can be exciting, fun or difficult, and sometimes all three at the same time! Our aim is to ensure that the children experience as smooth a transition from the Foundation Stage to Key Stage One. The Year 1 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that the children have had in Reception.

As a school, we take specific steps to help with this transition and ensure that children feel ready for the next stage in their education.   We have already put lots of activities in place but this term in addition, we will

  • Be making regular visits to the year 1 classrooms.
  • Attending KS1 assemblies.
  • Encouraging children to complete regular maths and English related activities     independently sitting at tables.

 

Our sports day is on Monday 3rd July

More details to follow.

 

Weather

Now thankfully the warmer weather is here, the children will want to take their jumpers off.  Please make sure your child’s jumper is clearly marked with their name.  We do have water available for children to drink throughout the day.  However, if you would rather your child bring in their own bottle from home, please do so and we can store it at our fruit station.  Please note it must only be water in the bottles; no juice or flavoured water please. 

 

Thank you for your support!

This week in Reception the children have been exploring the medical profession, acting in role as doctors, nurses and paramedics. This has led to writing medical reports and lists of patients. Although a big step, the children have been working exceptionally hard to write independently and have enjoyed a week of card making, poem writing and recipe creating.
