Reception

Update for Week beginning : 20.3.17

English and Maths information:

In English this week we have shared the story of Cinderella. This links in with our current topic, ‘Once Upon a Time’. We have been discussing characters and their thoughts and feelings. We have also been writing invitations.

We continue to work on key words so please focus on these at home when reading or at other times. The children should know I, the, and, can, is, in, it, he, she, had, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, all, are. The children should now also be able to spell the, to, I, no, go.

In Maths this week we have been looking at telling the time to o’clock and half past.

Other curriculum news:

We have had some wonderful ideas to help Cinderella get to the ball. The children have made carriages out of various materials, have written invitations and have made some beautiful gowns for her to wear, one of which was modelled by Miss Bowen at the end of the day on Monday.

General Information:

We are very much looking forward to our Fairytale ball tomorrow. I know there has been some confusion in respect of Red Nose Day but as this is our project outcome we would love for the children to come dressed in their outfits and stay in these for the whole day. There is no financial contribution needed for this but if of course you would like to make a donation to Comic Relief then we will collect these in. The PSA Mother’s Day workshop is also taking place tomorrow. There is more information about this on the website.

We still have a number of un-named items in lost property but we also have been told by a number of parents that they have lost named jumpers. Please can you all check that the jumper your child is wearing is their own and that it is named. We have been trying to encourage the children to be independent and take responsibility for their own belongings and would welcome your support with this issue.

Each week you are sent the observations from the 2Simple programme that we use. I believe it comes from 2Engage Parents. A number of parents have been able to send us observations back and we would continue to encourage this. We would love to see what the children get up to at the weekend!

Thank you for your ongoing support
