Brilliant website below for teaching phonics
P.E. sessions take place on a Tuesday and Thursday. Your child will need trainers or pumps on a Tuesday as these are our outdoor games sessions. We recommend that P.E. kits be kept in school. The children will be taught and encouraged to changed with increasing independence. Please make sure that all items of clothing are named as a ‘mix up’ often occur and it is often hard to find missing clothing when it has been lost.
All reception children are entitled to free milk, this is organised through the ‘Cool Milk Scheme’. If you decide that your child does want milk each day could you please let either Mrs Roberts or Mrs Richards know by signing the form provided.
We encourage children to drink water regularly throughout the day in order to keep them hydrated and aid their learning. Children are encouraged to bring in their own water bottle to keep in class.
Fruit and Vegetable Scheme
Your child will be provided with a free piece of fruit or some vegetables each day as part of a National Scheme. Please let us know if you do not want your child to participate or if there is anything that they are allergic to by filling in the form provided.
Reception / Class 1 children will have their reading books changed at least twice a week-usually on a Monday and Friday. Parents are encouraged to read with their children each day and any comments regarding their child’s reading can be noted down in the Reading Record Book.
Letters and Sounds
The children take part in our ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonic programme each day. It provides a fun, systematic and thorough approach to phonics teaching which continues throughout the school. Your child will bring home examples of the letter sounds/words that they are learning in their bookbags. It would help them if you could share this with your child in order to practise and consolidate their learning in class.
Through daily maths activities we shall practise and develop oral and mental skills. The children will read and write numbers and count confidently to at least 20. They will learn to recall addition and subtraction facts. We shall also be working with money, investigating 2D and 3D shapes and measuring. We will also be compiling class graphs and linking data handling to our topics.
