Reception 2023 - 2024

Miss Jagota

Welcome to Reception!

Reception is taught by Miss Jagota

and supported by Mrs Williams and Miss Lee

We’ve made it the end of the spring term! The children have been fantastic this term and have enjoyed a huge variety of events and activities, including Mother’s Day, Chinese New Year, Pancake Day, our trip to Manchester Airport service and so much more! It has been lovely watching them learn, grow in confidence and independence at school- I am so proud of them all.  I know they are ready for a well earned break! We’ve had a fun and busy final week learning about the Easter story, making Easter crafts and preparing for the Easter Assembly!

In phonics this week we have recapped all the digraphs learnt so far and added a new one ‘ar’ (start the car). In maths we have been helping the Easter chick 🐥match numbers to nests and count eggs and helped the Easter bunny🐇 count carrots in his garden!

For homework over the holidays, please continue to practise key words (reading and writing). I have also changed all reading books today (if the children had read at home) and they will have 2 or 3 books to read over the break.

As an additional homework, I have asked the children to have a go at writing a sentence about something they do during the Easter break, to share with the class (with a photo if they want). Encourage your child to sound out each word and to write the sounds they can hear. Please do not worry about correcting spellings, at this point our focus is on the children using their phonics knowledge and letter formation, writing new words phonetically or using their key words to help.

The children looked fantastic in their Easter bunny ears 🐰today and performed brilliantly, thank you for your help with these and support throughout this past term.

I hope you have a lovely Easter break.🐣
