Reception - Foxes

Week 4
We've had another busy week in Foxes! 

This week as part of our 'All about me' topic, we have been thinking about how we have all changed since we were a baby. The children started the week by sharing what they know about babies, including sleeping, crying and crawling. Today we thought about what we can do now that we couldn't do when we were a baby. Some of the things shared included were being able to ride a bike, jumping and doing a forward roll! 

Phonics Programme for Schools that makes teaching easier - Monster PhonicsWe started Monster Phonics this week and have learnt the sounds 's', 'a', 't', 'p'. We have learnt how to recognise the written sound and form them. We are beginning to listen for the initial sounds by saying the names of objects slowly. 

Thank you to those who have already shared what they would like to learn about in Reception with us so far. Please bring these in by next Wednesday. 

Oxford Reading Tree Read With Biff, Chip, and Kipper: Level 1: Pack of 8:  Roderick Hunt: 9780192794918: BooksEveryone now has reading books in their book bags, once these have been read twice at home they can be changed. Please remind your child to put them in the green box in the classroom when they come in if they need new books. Thank you. 

On Thursday afternoon the children have the opportunity to choose a story book as a library book. Please ensure these are in book bags on a Thursday so your child can choose a new one. 


Week 3
We've had a successful first full week at school! The children are continuing to get used to our routines. 

Happy Birthday ORT! | HIGHLAND LITERACYThis week we have been starting to learn the names of the characters in the Oxford Reading Tree books. By the end of next week everyone will have 2 reading books, a reading record and a character strip in their book bags. Please read with your child at home, making comments linked to how they found the book, dating and signing. This is really helpful in knowing how they read at home and not jsut with us. 

Phonics Programme for Schools that makes teaching easier - Monster PhonicsNext week we will be starting the Monster Phonics programme, learning 4 sounds and 2 teddy words. Your child will have a red teddy word/sound book in their book bags on Monday. 

As there will be reading books and sound books in book bags, please please do not put water bottles in book bags, many of our books and resources get damaged as a result. 

Children Dance Clipart Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | ShutterstockThis week we had our first dance lesson. The children were brilliant at finding a space in the hall and listening to the songs to join in with the actions. 

As you are aware the staggered start timings have been revised for Monday. Reception start at 8:40 and finish at 2:40. 

Have an enjoyable weekend.

Please name EVERYTHING, including snack pots, lunch boxes, cardigans/jumpers, book bags. It makes it much easier to reunite items if they are named. 

Timings for next week will now be our normal times. For drop off 8:30-8:40am and collection is at 2:30, please be prompt to ensure that the playground is cleared ready for the next collection time of the next class.
