Welcome to Eaglets R
Mrs Rashid, Mrs Kauser and Miss Begum welcome you to our reception class. Please read through the information below to help you and your child understand all that will be happening in our school year.
There will be parent information meetings that will explain in further detail Reading, Writing and Maths. We will be inviting parents to our Stay and Play sessions each half term.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We will be learning about demonstrating friendly
behaviour, initiating conversations and forming good relationships with our peers. As well as explaining our own knowledge and understanding. We will be doing circle times to become aware of our own and others’ feelings, understanding that some actions and words can hurt others’ feelings.
Communication and language
We are learning to listen to stories with increasing attention and recall, as well as using language to
imagine and recreate roles and experiences in play
situations . We will be listening and responding to ideas expressed by others in conversation or discussion. We will begin to question why things happen and give
We have daily Magic Maths session where children learn about different mathematical concepts in a fun and practical way.
Throughout the year children will focus on the way stories are structured and suggest how a story might end. Children will begin to read words and simple sentences, representing some sounds correctly and in sequence. We will write our names, labels and picture captions. We have a daily ‘Letters and Sounds’ and guided reading session.
Understanding the World
We are going to be showing an interest in different occupations and ways of life. We will have a weekly visit to our woodland area and will regularly visit our local area.
We will be learning about where we can find information and how to complete a simple program on a computer.
Expressive arts and design
Children will join construction pieces
together in order to build and balance. We will aim to construct with a purpose in mind, using a variety of
resources and to be able to use available resources to create props to support role-play. We will introduce a storyline into their play and encourage children to play alongside other children who are
engaged in the same theme.
Children will begin to form recognisable letters. In PE we will experiment with different ways of moving. We will also learn good practices with regard to exercise, eating, sleeping and hygiene which can contribute to good health.
Your child has been provided with a Phonics book, please go through the Phonics book weekly. Each week your child will be provided with ‘Talk Homework’ in their Busy Bee book.
We have been taking part in a project called 'Let's Grow.' This project has been designed to support and develop Early Years language and communication skills. The fruit and vegetable characters have been visiting us every week and the children have enjoyed taking care of them.
The Gingerbread Man
We visited the cash and carry and bought our ingredients to bake some gingerbread men.
Spring term 1
In Spring term 1 we were learning to ride balance bikes! We went off to the North Pole in an aeroplane and painted winter pictures inspired by Monet. We also found out about Chinese New Year celebrations including tasting noodles and using chopsticks.
