Reception - Ash 2017 - 2018
Thank you for looking at our web page. This page will be updated every Friday in term-time and you can use it to find out what we have been doing during the week and to get information about how you can help your child at home.
Thank you to everyone who attended our open day on Tuesday. It was great to see so many of you there.
This week in literacy we have been looking at people who help us, such as police officers, nurses, crossing patrol officers, dentists, teachers etc. In maths we have been focussing on using positional language, such as on top of, behind etc.
How you can help your child this week
- Speaking/literacy activity - ask your child to tell you as many people who help us that they can think of and talk about what these people do to help and what might happen if we didn't have them. Ask your child to say the sound that each 'helper' begins with eg. police officer 'p' 'o', dentist 'd'. If your child is finding this difficult, you can support him/her by emphasising the sound as you say the word.
- Maths - Play 'hide and seek' with your child. Ask him/her to talk about hiding places using positional language such as, "I was under the chair", "I was on top of my bed", "I was inside my playhouse", "I hid behind the door" etc. Introduce your child to any positional language that they may not yet be familiar with.
Thank you to the many parents that do our recommended activities; your support at home has such a positive impact on your child's learning. Please comment in your child's home/school message book if your child has done any extra activities at home so that we can use comments as evidence towards your child's learning profile. We also award a homework sticker every Monday to all children completing these activities. Your child may also write/draw in his/her home/school message book.
We hope that you find all of our staff helpful and approachable. Please don't hesitate to speak to any member of the team if you have any queries or concerns, however big or small.
