Happy lunchtimes!

We have had another great week in Reception. The children have enjoyed staying for lunch and are getting used to the routines at lunchtimes. It seems that the children are really into Superheroes at the moment, so we will be embracing that next week and building that into our planning.

This is our Curriculum map for this year. We strive to plan from the children's interests and so cannot tell you too far in advance the topics we will be covering, however, this document will explain what is covered within each area of learning. We will update this page and Twitter and include any ideas for home learning opportunities. 
Please remember Wednesday is our PE day so the children need to come to school in their PE kits. Please also ensure you child has a pair of wellies in school and that all clothing is labelled. We are looking forward to seeing the children on Monday, well rested and raring to go! Have a lovely weekend!

What a fantastic week Reception has had! The children have settled in very quickly and are rapidly learning the morning routine. They know how to self-register, where to put their belongings and are able to find which group to go to for Fidgety Fingers. By 8.55am this morning all children were on task and learning! Thanks for all your help in encouraging the children to be independent when coming into school. Next week they will need to choose their school dinners when they first come in, so please discuss with your child in the morning what the options are and support them in placing their stone in the correct basket.

Independent learners

This week has been all about becoming familiar with the classroom and teachers, aswell as getting to know each other. We have been modelling routines- from how to get their snack, to how to put on an apron. It is paying off already, as we can see the children starting to help each other and attempting to put on their own coats and wellies rather than asking an adult to do it for them. Please encourage the children to be as independent as they can be with these tasks at home too!

See you next week...

We are looking forward to seeing the children at school full time next week. Expect to have some very tired little people coming home at the end of the day. Being in Reception is truly exhausting (but wonderful!) Have a lovely weekend!
