Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we love to learn through play!

 

If there are any problems or queries, please do not hesitate to come and see me or one of the team – our door is always open.  Here at St Mary’s we believe communication between home and school is an essential factor for a wonderful learning experience.

 

We hope that you have fun listening to the children telling you all about the exciting things we will be doing together in Reception. 

 

Staff

In Reception we have Miss Dempsey, Mrs Howard-Cofield,  Miss Smith and Mr Larkin.  Miss Smith will cover my PPA on a Wednesday.

 

To keep up to date with events in EYFS and around the rest of the school, please go to our school website for all the latest pictures to see what we get up to!

 

Topic 

Our topic for our this half term is ‘Dinosaurs'.  We will be focusing on learning fact from non-fiction books and writing our facts about the dinosaurs.  We will become fossil experts and even make our own fossil imprints.  

Please see the plan attached for more information.

Reception Medium Term Plan 

 

Reminders

  • Uniform - We ask all children to wear a school uniform. A white polo shirt with either grey pants or grey skirt/pinafore should be worn
  • PE kits – We will be doing PE in the coming weeks. Please ensure your child has a white t-shirt, black or navy shorts and pumps
  • Spare clothes - All children should have a bag in school with spare clothes - accidents do happen!
  • Water bottle – Children should bring a water bottle into school with their name clearly labelled on it. We do ask parents to make sure that the bottle contains only water
  • Names - Please make sure children have their names in all items of their uniform. It avoids tears when things go missing and really helps staff
  • Book bag – Once all the children are settled and we have assessed them they will start to bring a library book, a reading book, lotto words and other activities home. Book bags will go out on Fridays and will need to be back by the following Wednesday
  • Wet weather attire - All children need a pair of wellies in school and a raincoat (with their names on) 

 

Things to do at Home

  • Phonics – play I spy, look at phonic songs on Youtube and ask the children what letters animal names begin with. Anything is fab!
  • Reading - Read with your child as much as possible and encourage them to discuss their favourite characters and favourite book(s)
  • Maths - Draw your child’s attention to numbers and shapes within their environment. e.g. door numbers, shapes of household items
  • Topic - Discuss family life with your child, including immediate family members along with their visual traits and what makes them so special. We will be learning about our bodies and some of our vital organs!

 

I look forward to all the fun and exciting things we will be doing together this year.

 

Miss Dempsey
