Welcome to Reception!

This week we have been very busy with our Nativity, performances all the children were amazing! We have also listened to and talked about the real meaning of Christmas. The children have made Christmas cards and have begun to take part in many Christmas activities. They have enjoyed watching the Year 2 and the  Nurseries Christmas concerts. In maths we have continued to practise addition and subtraction.

Next week will be our last week before the Christmas break.. The children will be continuing to take part in lots of fun christmas activities. Including a puppet show on Wednesday. On Thursday we will be having our Christmas party, so please can you bring in a party bag with a packet of crisps, drink ,sweet snack and something healthy (NO NUTS).  We will be finishing school at 2.00pm on Friday 20th December.

Our phonics sounds next week will be ng and nk. We will continue to send red books home so you can  practise your letter formations over the holidays. 



If you have any books or stories about Christmas please bring these in to share with the class.
Can you also discuss with your children the sequence of event that happen within the Christmas story.
Please can you continue to practise your letter formation in your red books.
 Please keep practising working with numbers to 20 and continue to reinforce the meaning of addition and subtraction. Practise recognising 3D shapes within the environment around us. (cube, cone, pyramid, cuboid and sphere)
Please can you also practise your child's self-help skills eg toileting, getting dressed and undressed etc.
Reception Christmas party on Thursday 19th December, please can you bring in a named party bag with a packet of crisps (savory snack), drink, sweet snack and a piece of fruit.
Please can you ensure that your child has a named coat, hat and gloves when they come to school as the weather is getting rather chilly.
Please can you also ensure that you keep your child's red phonics book, reading book and reading record in their books bags each day
All the children are becoming really settled and we would really appreciate if you could leave your children at the gates in the morning rather than coming into the classroom.
