Welcome back to the final term of the year! Where is the time going?
This term will be busy as usual, but lots of fun. Our timtable remains rather the same as last term, focusing on really securing elements of the children's learning. We are putting a huge focus on developing the children's writing skills and what better way to do that, through the use of the story 'Supertato.' We are also going to take a lot of our learning outside where possible and attempt to grow our own potatoes. We hope to use our conerservation area a lot more this term too.
As we move into the second half of the term, we will begin to prepare the children for the transition into Year 1. We also have lots of fun events to enjoy such as sports day and the Queen's Jubilee. We hope your child enjoys their final term in Reception!
Please remember, any questions, please feel free to speak to us.
In Reception, we aim for all children to become independent learners who are happy to attend school each day. We encourage children's inquisitive minds and ensure opportunities are provided to enhance children's learning development through their interests. We hope for every child to be a confident learner who enjoys challenges and learning new things.
Here are some pictures of our classroom.
As you can see, there is a huge variety of resources in the classroom and we teach the children to "choose it, use it and put it away" once they have finished.
The classroom is split into different areas of learning with a variety of resources in each to help give children different learning experiences. They can use these experiences to help build on existing and new concepts, to extend their knowledge and understanding, with effective scaffolding from the staff.
Child-initiated and adult-led learning is balanced within the class timetable, giving the children opportunities to choose their own learning and challenge themselves. Observations of the children are undertaken by the staff and used to provide stimulating challenges and activities in the classroom, using both the inside and outside learning environments.
We strongly believe that parents have an invaluable contribution towards their own child's learning, and work cooperatively to create good links between home and school. Each week we send home information of what the children have been doing at school via Dojos, with some activities to complete at home with their parents to consolidate their learning. We encourage parents to share things that may go on outside of school, such as a celebration or achievement for their child. This continuous communication is key to ensuring the best outcomes for children.
We are very approachable staff, so please do not hesitate to come and ask us any questions you may have!
