Welcome to Reception RH from Miss Hiley, Mrs Jones and Miss Davison.
We have had another busy week in Reception. The children have settled in really well doing full days and are becoming much more confident in the school hall at lunch time. We also had our first assembly this week where the children joined in with singing. We will be going to the assemblies on Wednesday's for singing and Friday's for celebration.
Thank you for providing your children with waterproof clothing and wellies. We have been really busy learning outside, and even had a visit to the woods. Some children have enjoyed gardening where we managed to dig up some potatoes! On Friday some of the children did some cooking with Sally Sandwich where we cooked our potatoes and made chips, they were so delicious.The children also learnt about the importance of washing hands before we touch foods and cooking.
We have started phonics this week and have introduced a new sound each day (c,s,a,t). This has been based around the children'as interests. They have all worked really hard on sound hunts inside and outside the classroom and practising writing the sounds in the different areas of the classroom. If you would like more information on phonics then please attend the Phonics Workshop on Monday at 2.45, we look forward to seeing you then.
Welcome to Reception!
The children have had a brilliant first week and have settled into school calmly and confidently. They are making new friends, learning to follow the Hoyle Court Way (school rules) and the daily routines. The children have enjoyed staying for lunch and having a tour of the school.
The children look really smart their new school uniforms. However, we are finding that some clothes and shoes are not labelled and therefore children are getting them mixed up. Please ensure that all your child's property is labelled with a permanent marker or label. Children have really enjoyed learning outside but some children have not got waterproofs or wellies to access the mud kitchen and water areas. If you have not already brought these into school, please bring them into school as soon as soon as possible.
On a Monday morning RH class will have a PE lesson in the hall. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit including: a white t-shirt, navy shorts and pumps. Please encourage your child to practise getting dressed and undressed independently.
Every Monday RH class will be taught PE and PHSCE by Miss Millner.
