Reception Parent Share

Towards the end of this term we will be sharing some observations with you, which we have made of your children since they started school. This is a great way for you to see what your child gets up to during the school day.

These observations will be sent to you via email, and to receive them you need to accept the email invitation which has been sent. You may have already done this earlier in the year or when your child was in nursery, in which case you don't need to do anything else.

If you haven't yet accepted the invitation can you please check your junk/trash inbox as they sometimes end up there. If you haven't received an invitation or you do not have an email address, please speak to your child's class teacher

Thank you for your continued support,
The Reception Team

Nursery Stay and Play Tomorrow - Teddies Welcome!

We would like to invite parents to our Stay and Play session on Wednesday 20th of November. The focus is themed around the importance of reading and children's language skills. As our story of the week is 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' the children can also bring their favorite teddy bear to school to join in with the activities. There will be lots of fun activities for you to join in with your child. The morning session will start at 9.00 am and the afternoon session at 12.30pm. Parents with children who stay all day are welcome to attend either session.


Reception Rockets to the Moon!

Throughout last week reception were reading the story ‘Whatever Next’ which was all about a bear that uses his imagination to pretend that he is in a rocket flying to the moon. The reception children loved this idea and had the opportunity to design and make their own junk model rockets!

The children designed their rockets before building them to encourage them to think about what they are making and how they are going make it. 

The end result rockets were fit for any and all space travel!

“ I put those and put cello tape and made them wings and there’s fire here” - Alfie

Home Sweet Home

The Reception children have had fun  re-enacting home life experiences in our revamped home corner! The home corner is a fabulous place which supports both individual and group play. The children love spending time, stirring, filing, emptying, buttoning, trying things on and taking them off. The children have enjoyed cooking and baking in the home corner and pretending to make meals for each other and feeding our dolls. 

By providing a setting for role play, the home corner allows children to make sense of their immediate world. Children have numerous opportunities to work together, express their feelings, and use language to communicate, responding to one another’s needs and requests.The children play with their friends, acting out familiar roles such as mums, dads and babies. As well as re-enacting events such as going to the dentist, talking on the phone and ordering take-away food.

Reception’s shop is open!

The children returned to school after the weekend to find that the role play area had been changed into a shop. There was much excitement over the opening of this new food outlet and the lines for the tills have been pretty long! 

Role play gives children the opportunity to use their imagination as well as draw upon their real life experiences and to act out these narratives within their play. The shopkeeper role has proved popular and the children have managed turn taking by using a sand time to support them. Role play also helps to develop children's language and communication skills and adults have been modelling how to play and interact within this environment. There has also been lots of Maths going on, recognising of numbers on prices labels, language related to money and even some adding up of items! 

Perhaps you could visit a local shop and let your child help with the shopping and pay for something!
