Hello to our Reception class
This weeks learning in Maths is continuing from last week, but this week we will ask you to complete lessons in finding 1 less than a given number. Later in the week you will be sharing in different ways with numbers up to 20. The English work starts with the mention of seeds and a well- known story in which a boy plants a seed and a large plant grows....Yes its all about Jack and the Beanstalk. In the Topic sessions, you will be asked to think about, sing about and construct different vehicles in a transport theme. We will leave the website links on for the Sports at home week just in case any of you haven't had chance to have a go. Please follow the links below. As always, we are still thinking of you and the children in class are enjoying seeing the photos of you that you have sent using the class email. Please carry on keeping in touch.
Stay safe and happy.We are really looking forward to coming together as soon as we can.
Mrs Burrows, Mrs Waddington, Mrs Cassidy, Miss Gandera and Mrs Rigby.
The children who are back in school have enjoyed looking at your photos from home so we thought we would send all of our home learners a photo of us in school. We are all busy and keeping safe; washing our hands regularly and keeping a safe distance.
Hello from all of us.
Don’t forget about the many websites and games that we use in school such as;
www.cbeebies.co.uk Shows, puzzles, colouring etc.
www.topmarks.co.uk This has a lot of our favourite maths games – shape monster, helicopter rescue, counting games and many more.
www.twinkl.com then search for phase 3 interactive phonic games this will let you choose to play different phonics games.
www.phonicsplay.co.uk if you are struggling to login for free the buried treasure game is always free! Click on phase 3 and practise with all the different sounds.
In the mornings, Mrs Waddington is your class teacher and Mrs Burrows is your teacher in the afternoons. Mrs Rigby and Miss Gandera are our teaching assistants.
We have PE ON Thursday but please make sure your child's kit is in school and clearly labelled with your child's full name on. In addition, the children will have daily access to our outdoor provision so a coat must always be available each day.
Our Reading books are changed every Wednesday. At the beginning of the year children are given books with no words. This is to develop an understanding of books and to give opportunities to share other books and stories with the children. However we encourage children to bring their book-bags every day as we have lots of helpers who like to listen to children read.
Children in class will bring home a Home School Link Book. In this the children will be set small learning tasks to complete with you at home. We encourage you to leave comments about how they get on and any other comments about achievements at home. This information can be added to our assessments. We welcome this communication.
We aim to create a curriculum that responds to our children's needs and so therefore it is difficult to map out a set curriculum for the year. We plan based on interests, relevant events and gaps in learning. Topics and areas of learning will be communicated through the Home School Book.
We use websites such as Phonics Play and Teach Your Monster to Read, as well as resources from Floppy Phonics and Oxford Owl, to support children when teaching phonics and reading.
If you have any questions regarding the curriculum your child is being taught, please contact school.
At Our Lady's we are always pleased to meet our parents, we will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45am and after school. If you would like us to ring you please leave a message at the school office.
