First week back in Reception

Mrs Divall and Mrs Zaayman - 28 Feb 2019

Welcome back to all after a surprisingly sunny February half term! We will send home our half termly newsletter and homework map tomorrow so please make sure you have a look over them this weekend.

We have been learning about the Emergency services this week.

On Monday, PC Brown came to visit us.  She is a very inspiring young police officer who carefully explained some aspects of her job, and why she wanted to do it, to our Reception class.  PC Brown showed us some of her uniform, her radio and her protective vest.  PC Brown explained to the children that her and her other police friends are there to keep everyone safe.  The children asked some excellent questions and it was brilliant to see their listening skills and focus during this visit.

We have been telling stories and role playing scenarios involving the police and other emergency stories.  The children thoroughly enjoy acting out made up stories, such as preventing a baddie stealing a bike, and a baddie raiding a bank!  They particularly enjoy putting the baddies in prison!  Some children have been taking fingerprints using the black poster paint..! We have played a game called cops and robbers, great fun was had by all.  It is pleasing to see how quickly the children understand new instructions and are able to play whole class games very maturely. We have also been really fortunate to have 4 brand new pedal bikes purchased for us.  The children have really enjoyed riding these bikes and taking turns using the egg timer.
 
In maths, we have been continuing our learning about 3D shapes.  We have been looking for shapes in the environment and talking about their names and properties.  Please practise identifying cubes, cuboids, spheres, cones and pyramids at home this weekend.

For your own information, below are the expected end of year standards for Reading, Writing and Maths in Reception.  You may find it useful to relate your own child’s progress towards these goals and work on particular aspects of these goals that your child may benefit from. 

Reading -  
Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate an understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

Writing –
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.

Number –
Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape Space and Measure -
Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
 
We look forward to talking in detail about your individual children during the parent consulation evenings on March 19th and 20th.  

Kind Regards,
The Reception team :)
