Reading in Reception is coming along well. Mrs Saeed and Mrs Bugg are impressed with the progress the children are making and the effort that everyone is putting in to practising the letter sounds and reading the words at home. We have almost learnt the alphabet sounds – just j,v,w,x,y,z and qu to go and inevitably some children are now ready to begin writing words, captions and sentences.
In school we use the cursive script for writing and the children will soon be taught how each letter is formed but, to get a head start, here is a video that shows you how we write each letter. Please be aware that we form x and z slightly differently in school to what you see in the video.
Thank you everyone who came along to our Phonics Meeting. Here is the powerpoint we used, a link to the correct articulation of phonemes, a leaflet of useful information and links to useful sites to help.
Afternoon tea for Grandparents is only two weeks away on the 28th June. Please make sure that you have returned your completed letter to let us know who is coming and whether any of you can help during the afternoon to serve tea and coffee.
You are welcome to invite as many grandparents as you wish.
No afternoon tea is complete without cakes so we will be asking for a donation of cakes for the event. Please send them in on the Thursday morning.
Thank you to all of you that came along to our interactive maths session. I hope that it gave you an insight into how we teach maths in Reception. Here is a link for more information about the expectations of what the children need to learn by the end of Reception.
If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to talk to us at school.
