Hi Reception class, parents and carers,
I hope you had a lovely half term break and were able to get out and enjoy the sunshine. Things are going to be a little different this month as some of you will be returning to school whilst others remain at home. Being at school may seem very different as we will not be all together but split into 2 groups. We will all be doing roughly the same learning though. For children at home, I will continue to post home learning challenges and link them to our theme which for this half term is Flying High! At school I will be working closely with Mrs Steventon to provide the same opportunities for both reception groups.
I would suggest that families at home continue watching the DfE daily phonics lessons and try to listen to your child read each day and encourage them to use their phonics to practise writing words and sentences daily.
For maths, the school has subscribed to White Rose. This maths website does not have daily maths lessons and linked worksheets for foundation stage children but does have some lovely maths activities which link to stories aimed at reception children. I will continue to provide additional maths challenges for home learners each week also.
I have put a copy of the EYFS early learning goals in the homework section of our class page. These are the goals that most children will achieve by the end of the summer in reception class. Not every child will meet these goals, and some might exceed them. Wherever your child is in their learning rest assured that when they return to school, we will continue their learning from the point they are at and they will not miss out on anything.
You can still reach me on our class email address – email@example.com if you have any questions or if the children at home want to share their learning with me.
I look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow and hope that the whole class will be back together soon.
Mrs Johnson 😊
