Our Topic this term is - Growing
Welcome to Willows class page.
Last term we learnt lots about 'The Hungry Caterpillar'. A huge thank you for your support with homework. Please keep this up, listening to them read and working on their math passport three times a week is hugely beneficial for your child but don't forget to send their book bags into school everyday.
I'm sure you are now familiar with the language and the structure we use but if you have any questions please come and see me.
The children in the Reception group will work within the Foundation Stage Curriculum, which will give them lots of opportunities to experience the continuous provision and enhanced activities, both inside and outside the classroom. The children will be encouraged to work both independently and in groups. This term they will be focusing on Growing and Our Local Environment. To help with their creativity the pupils will paint, make collages and seed pictures. As well as child initiated activities we will have adult directed tasks and will base these on 'Jaspers Beanstalk' which is our story of the term. Attached is a copy of the words for you to read to your child.
Enclosed is a general outline of the Learning Objectives we hope to cover this term but this may change to reflect the childrens' interests and ideas.
The Year 1 children will join the pupils in Beeches most afternoons and will learn about Growing which focuses on National Curriculum Objectives (see Beeches class page and topic overview).
We intend to have PE lessons on Thursday and Friday afternoons. PLEASE, PLEASE label your child's clothes as I am getting a big collection of pupils' kits. If you are missing any items of clothing please check Willows lost property box.
They also need a coat every day as many of our learning tasks will take place outside. If the weather is kind to us please send in a named hat and named suntan lotion, but do remember staff are not allowed to put sunscreen on any child.
The children will have free access to water and the toilet.
19th April Willow's class cake sale is at 3:15 in the top playground (donations of cakes and biscuits will be much appreciated, as will your help at the sale)
25th May Willow Sharing Celebration Service is at 9:15
Some general reminders. Celebration Service is at 9:15 each Friday morning. All are welcome.
Please check your child's book bag each day for school letters and their sounds or homework.
I know lots of you are helping your children to do their homework, please remember to write this in their reading records.
