Shoe Box Letter - Jan 2020

I Sing Pop - January 2020

Welcome From Percy.

Hi it is Percy here again!


   Well last term did not quite end as we expected. However before our early end we managed to fit lots into the term. We had lots of fun being toy makers, explorers and even Chinese dragons. We had, a toy shop and a jungle in the classroom.

  I am starting to get a little bit lonely in the classroom now, but Mrs Bowman keeps coming in and showing me what you have all been up to. I know he is setting you work on the 'School Closure' part of the website, so I am trying to do some of that as well but I miss Reception teaching me.

 I know this term we would have been finding out lots about minibeasts and thinking about seaside holidays. Hopefully there will be a chance for us to come together again when it is safe to do so and do some of that together.

   Mrs Bowman has usually got her tissues ready for the end of the year when Reception get ready to move to Year One but I think she is missing you as well and has already used some of them!

  I am really proud of how you have been working at home and hopefully will see you all again soon. Take care, stay safe and keep smiling.






Reading Books and Phonics in Reception.


In Reception we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance. Alongside this we use 'Phonics Play'. This has a website with lots of useful resources and also includes lesson plans which are adapted by the school. In addition, when we introduce each phoneme we use the 'Jolly Phonics' actions as a lot of children are familiar with some of these from their nursery.


We have a variety of reading schemes in reception that we run alongside each other using book banded levels. We do this in order to provide a greater variety in books.

The schemes we use are:

Oxford Reading Tree                                  Collins Big Cat

Ginn Reading 360                                        Talk a Story

Read with Biff Chip and Kipper              Rigby Star

Rigby Rocket                                                 Usborne Very First Reading

Usborne Phonics Readers                        Floppies Phonics

Termly Coverage Overviews 

There is a copy of our Summer Term coverage sheet below. This outlines some of the objectives we will be covering in class this term.


Below are copies of the coverage sheets for the Autumn and Spring Term:

Reception Class Promises - 2019

Reception have agreed on some promises that they think will make our classroom a lovely place to be.

Reception Parent Meeting - 16.9.19

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the meeting tonight. Hopefully I have been able to reassure you all that we have been doing something these first two weeks! I know a number of children have been going home saying they have not done anything during the day!

I did promise that I would put the meeting PowerPoint on this page so you can look back through and for those that were unable to attend. I will also send home the handouts to any families that were unable to attend.

Reception Advent Assembly - November 2019

Reception did a great job singing and speaking in their Advent assembly today. I have put the PowerPoint beneath so that if anyone in your family was unable to come they could have a look through the PowerPoint. I am sure your child could then explain what was happening at each stage!
