Home Learning - Reception Class
Homework 6th July 2018
This week we have had a big focus on RE where we are coming to the end of our unit on Bible Stories. The children learnt the story of the Wise Man and the Foolish Man. Ask them to tell it to you with the actions! We talked about the choices the man made in the story and had discussion about wise choices and foolish choices. We wrote a class story about two children who made a wise and a foolish choice and then some of the children wrote their own version of a story which involved making choices. We have also had discussion about how Christian people believe God helps them to know how to make a good choice, and the children talked about who in their own lives helps them know how to make a good choice.
Phonics has been supported through guided reading this week where we have focused on the phase 3 sounds and tricky words that occur in the book your child is reading.
Dismissing children at the end of the day
As part of our preparations for the children moving into Year 1, as of next week we will be dismissing the children from the main playground at the end of the day. From Monday please collet your children from the gates to the Reception area in the main playground. We will keep the children in our smaller outside area until whoever is collecting them arrives at the gate. The children will each have a name card which they need to give to a member of staff before leaving. We aim to be dismissing the children from the benches in the main playground in the last week of term. Please note that morning drop off remains as normal at our Reception side gate.
Please remember in this hot weather to apply sun cream to your child before they come to school. We are spending a lot of time in our outside area at the moment.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Joyce & Mrs Simpson
