RECEPTION

This Week: 
This week we have continued our learning about the sea and have been learning all about pirates. We have made pirate maps and have created our own pirates, named and described them.  In maths we have looked at how to read coordinates on maps.
We had great fun on International day and many of the children dressed up in their National Costumes. The children made their own passports and had lots of discussions about their own and other countries.
 
Next week we will be our final week in Reception :(  We will be looking back on the year and will be talking about all the lovely things we have learnt and the things that we have achieved.  The children will be writing a letter to their new teacher to take over to their new class on Monday afternoon.  The children will be spending an hour in their new class and meet their new teacher.
On Wednesday we will be having a 'Pirate and Mermaid' day and we will also be having a small party in the afternoon for the children.  Please can your child bring in a bag with a drink, packet of crisps and a couple of goodies for the party.
 
We will be going to Church on Friday to say goodbye to Year 6.
 
We have had a wonderful year with all of your children and will be very sad to see them go.
 
 
Homework
 
We have taken in all the reading books from book bags.  Please can you check if you have any school books at home.
 
Homework: Please can you talk to your children about the things they can remember and learnt in Reception.
 
  
Please can you continue to reinforce number to 20, ordering, recognition and writing, counting on and back from when completing simple problems.

Notices:

Pirates and Mermaids Day - Wednesday 18th July (Party for children in PM)

Please remember that school closes at 2pm on Friday 20th July.

We are now doing our PE sessions outside so all children need to have their own outdoor shoes. With a slight confusion this week we are going to continue our PE lessons  on a Tuesday for Owls and Wednesday for Robins. 

Lunches

Please can you fill in week 1, 2 and 3 on the lunchtime grid. Making sure you discuss this first with your child.  Could you remind them each morning to what they are having, thank you!

If you child is having a pack lunch please can this be a healthy lunch following our new school rules. Also all lunch boxes must be named. Due to nut allergies please do not bring peanut butter sandwiches.

Communication

We would just like to reiterate the importance of communication between parents and ourselves.  If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to talk to one of the team or to email your class teacher.
