Welcome back after the break. I hope you've all had a lovely week off. It's hard to believe that this will be the children's last half term in Reception. It doesn't seem so long ago that they were starting. It has been so lovely teaching the children and getting to know them. This half term we will be reading some of the books of Roald Dahl starting with "The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me" which I am sure the children will enjoy. We will also be focussing on the numbers 10-20 this week to make sure that all the children are confident in recognising them and matching them to quantities of objects. In phonics we will be revisiting Phase 3.
Please make sure all items of clothing are clearly labelled and as the warm weather begins the children may need to have a sun hat to wear at break and lunch times which will also need to be named. When the weather becomes very warm the children may need sun cream which I would be grateful if you could apply before your child arrives at school. The children should have a named water bottle with them every day so that they can stay hydrated - we will encourage the children to drink lots and will refill their bottles as and when required. The children do PE on Friday mornings so please make sure they have a full PE kit in school, which should be named. Children's reading books and reading diaries should be with them every day so that we can write in them as and when we read with them. Teddy words books should be brought into school on Monday morning to be checked and have new words attached. If you have any queries, please speak to me at the end of the day.
