Welcome back to another exciting half term in Reception, I hope you've all had a lovely October half term!
Our class teacher is Miss Bianchi and she is supported by Mr Colleran and Miss Eatherly. Unfortunately, this term Mrs Hoyle and Mrs Doyne won't be supporting in our class, however, they will be joining us again in the Spring term! Miss Robinson teaches us on a Thursday morning whilst Miss Bianchi has her PPA time. This term we are very lucky to have Miss Saleem, a student teacher joining our class. She is very excited about getting to know the children and teaching them later in the term.
Our topic this term is festivals and celebrations. This topic is a fantastic opportunity for the children to develop their skills in understanding the world and expressive arts & design.
In phonics, we are continuing with our phase 2 sounds in RWI. We have been very impressed with how well the children are doing in our phonics sessions and would like to thank you for the support you are giving at home, this makes a huge difference to the children's learning. New sounds are sent home every Friday, please can you ensure your child's sound book is in on a Thursday. In maths this term we are focusing in depth on 0-10, following GLOW maths hub planning as well as NCETM and Number blocks.
Our door is always open, so please do pop in if you have any questions or queries!
