Welcome To Reindeer Class
Hello and a warm welcome to Reindeer Class!
Over the course of our time together in Reception, our learning will stem from six main topics. These are:
Your child will receive a Knowledge Organiser at the start of each topic. This outlines the essential knowledge that we will be covering during this first term, including key vocabulary, definitions, and other information. Please use this as a reference guide for what your child is learning, and also, as an opportunity to discuss the facts about the topic with your child and find out as much as you can about it. Any knowledge that your child acquires before a topic is taught in class will help them to deepen their understanding in lessons!
Your child will also receive a homework choice grid at the beginning of each half term which will include a range of homework activities linked to our learning in class. The choice grid will consist of nine homework tasks, of which your child can choose from each week. Please complete one task from the choice grid every week. Please do not feel that you must complete all nine tasks every half term, however, if you would like to that would be brilliant!
Reading at home is incredibly important in all year groups, but particularly in Reception! Your child’s home reading book will directly link to the focus phonemes that we will learn in class each week. Regular reading at home is integral for your child to consolidate their phonics learning and practise key skills like phoneme recognition and blending. Please make sure that you aim to read with your child 3-4 times per week and record a short entry in their reading diary.
Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed in PE kit on these days. If your child wears earrings, please ensure that these are removed on PE days if you can.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to have a chat with myself or any of the EYFS team at the start or end of the school day when we are out on the playground or you can send me an email via the Contact Form below.
