Welcome to Class RG!
Reception Graduation 2021
Meet your year 1 teachers
Our Week At School
Please look out for a Facebook post on Friday!
Ideas for sentence writing practise:
The following sentences are at an appropriate level for Reception children to be able to write. Please simply read the sentence out to your child and allow them to sound out and write the words (please try not to sound it out for them or correct their spelling). The words should be phonetically plausible eg. ‘person’ could be ‘pursun’, ‘meal’ could be ‘meel’ etc.
- The man went to the shop.
- A dog on a mat.
- A pig in the mud.
- The sheep are in the shed.
- It is such a mess!
- Look at a book.
- The light of a torch.
We can see that the children are making great progress with their phonics sounds. Please continue to read the reading book that is sent home with them. In the reading record we would love to hear how they are getting on with their reading book at home! Please remember to use videos at the the bottom of this page to help with pure sounds and blending. The children can also use these to learn from.
Each week we will carry out activities based around our topic in the following areas:
- The Prime Areas: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development
- The Specific Areas: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design
- We also have daily Phonics sessions.
Below are some examples of the activities the children will be doing this half term:
For your information:
- Please ensure ALL of your child’s clothes are labelled (including Forest School kit, PE kit and coats).
- PE day is Thursday- please ensure PE kit is in school and hair is tied back.
- Children require a Wild Woods kit every Monday.
- Please ensure that you write in your child’s Reading Record book every time they read their book- we will take the books in on a Friday to quarantine and will hand a new one out again on a Monday.
- Please continue to practice the Phase 2 sounds with your child at home, along with the high frequency and tricky words. We are currently learning our Phase 2 sounds and tricky words- please begin to practice these too! The children love Mr Thorne on YouTube, he has videos on all of the Phase 2 and 3 sounds. There are also videos below to help children with phonics.
- We write in precursive handwriting, the more practice the children get the better! You can find the letters below:
