Reception

  • Spring Project - Weather Wonders

    Look out of the window. What is the weather doing today? Will it be the same tomorrow or the day after that? Weather can change all the time. It can be raining, snowing, windy or sunny. There are lots of different types of weather and each one can make a big difference to what we can do, what we wear and even how we feel. Weather happens everywhere in the world and it’s what makes where we live special. As we become weather watchers and learn more about the weather, we will discover there’s lots of fun to be had, whatever the weather!

  • Reading

    Please read with your child for 10 minutes every evening.

    Encourage them to point to each letter and say its sound, and then to blend them together to read the whole word. Please remember to leave these books in your child’s book bag.

    Children should now know the following GPCs and tricky words.

    Understanding of the world

    Explore the weather with your child at home looking at the days of the week. Perhaps you could look in newspapers or on the weather forecast on TV. Here is an example from a newspaper to talk about:

  • HOW TO HELP AT HOME

    Talk about your family. Look at family photos.

    -Who is in your family?

    -What countries do they come from?

    -What special things do you and your family like to do together?

    -Do you belong to a religion or follow any particular routines?

    Read with your child daily!

    Talk about strategies you use to calm down when you’re feeling upset or angry and help your child to practise some techniques.

    • Count to 10 and breathe deeply.
    • Think about some things that make you happy.
    • Focus on the things that you can hear, smell, see and touch.

    Tapestry is a great tool for accessing information about your child’s time in school and enjoy seeing them progress in Reception. If you need any support with Tapestry do let us know.
