Reception S 2018 - 2019
Hello and welcome to Reception S.
The teacher in this class is Miss Whiteside and the teaching assistant is Mrs Simpson.
Each child in RS is unique and special. We learn to be strong and independent through building strong and positive relationships. Our classroom is an enabling environment allowing us to experience stimulating resources. We learn and develop in lots of different ways and our teachers provide opportunities for challenge, support and exploration through play.
Tapestry is our learning journey that allows you to view your child’s journey through school online. You can access pictures and even upload some yourself. The children love showing and sharing with the rest of the class, what they have been up to at the weekend through these pictures that are uploaded.
Children will receive a reading book weekly and will be given a certain reading day. Please read with your child daily, asking them the key questions about the story and the characters.
P.E. kit is to be in every day and we will be taking part in Physical Fridays – completing fine and gross motor skills/activities. P.E. kit will be taken home each half term to be washed. Please ensure ALL kit is labelled with your child’s name.
We use Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds, the children will be learning Phase 2 and 3 sounds and will be able to blend and segment .
Please also remember £1 snack money each Monday. This can be given in termly if needed.
Our class attendance target is 97%. It is really important that your child attends school every day.
