Rec F 2017 - 2018

Mrs Fletcher

 

We hope you all had a lovely Easter break and didn't eat too much chocolate! We hope you made some lovely family memories. 

We will begin this half term by learning about St George, Superheroes and the Fire Service and anything that catches the interest of the children.

We were very excited to find a letter from Daisy the dragon who left her eggs for us to look after. Although, we were worried about Draco (her brother) who threatened to eat the teachers.

We made a barrier around the nest to keep the eggs safe.

                    

We are getting some great WOW cards back to share the learning that has been done at home so thank you.

In Literacy, we will be reading Supertato. This week we have been exploring comic strips and have been writing our own speech bubbles.

We will continue teaching a daily phonics lesson, the children are doing phenomenally well and are applying their phonics to write sentences! We love to listen to and join in with the phonics tricky words song. Have a listen at home- click on the link below.

We are continuing to develop our fine motor skills with our daily handwriting practice and there are lots of opportunities in provision to enhance our control. 

Our Maths learning will continue to focus heavily on shape, space and measure. We will continue to learn all about number, including addition, subtraction and moving on to halving.  We can now count in steps of 2 and are beginning to learn steps of 5. Challenge us at home?

Continue to play maths games at home - I know we will be playing lots of Maths games and songs to help us learn. We can also spot Maths everywhere in our environment, it is important that your child knows the names of simple shapes.

In R.E. this term’s focus is on Friendship.   We will be learning about being good friends and the friends of Jesus. We will also be exploring places of worship for Christians and Muslims.

We hope also to learn lots and follow the children’s interests.

               

Our classroom provision areas now reflect the needs of the class, as we have completed our end of term assessments. The areas of need we have identified are:  Shape, Space and Measures, Being Imaginative and Making Relationships. One thing is for sure is that they will be filled with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities.

P.E. will be on a Monday and a Friday, so please ensure your child has their kit in school at all times. Your child must dress themselves for school, this helps their physical development and helps them when changing for P.E. Also, can we remind you that ALL belongings need your child's name in. This will help any lost items be returned to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Fletcher and Miss Milburn

 

 

Here are some little ideas how you can support your child's learning at home:

  • Reinforce the sounds covered each day in class.
  • Practise name writing. Please make sure your child uses lower case letters except for their initial letter.
  • Share reading books, discussing plots, characters, and their feelings, as well as simply decoding the text.
  • Draw your child’s attention to numbers in their environment e.g. telephones, door numbers, car number plates etc. Count things around the home. How many windows do we have etc?
  • Encourage your child to dress themselves for school and take their uniform off at the end of the day to promote independence.
