Welcome to Reception
Our class project for this term is HERE WE ARE (whole school project on the book by Oliver Jeffers).
Our class project will lead to an end goal where we will apply and celebrate all the skills that we have used throughout our project.
During our project the children will be given the opportunity to choose what they would like to learn and how they would like to develop their project. We will share some of the exciting things we learn with you as our project develops through regular class updates (see below). Throughout our project the children will be developing as:
- ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
- enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
- ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
- healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
If you would like to get involved in our project and have expertise in any aspect of our project that you would like to bring into school, please contact the school office.
We’re going to be busy this term! You can follow some of our progress on the Glasllwch Twitter page: @GlasllwchP
In addition, please see your child’s individual link to their SeeSaw page. The codes for SeeSaw have been sent home to each parent. If you need another code, please pop in and see me at any time!
The following information about Reception may be helpful. Any unexpected changes or updates to the following information will be communicated through SeeSaw or Twitter.
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s reading. The key to success in reading is to read as often as possible and it is so important that your child reads at home as well as in school.
In Reception, the children will read twice a week, every Monday and Thursday. Please bring your child’s reading folder into school everyday.
The Reception library is stocked with lots of reading materials but if your child would like to bring in a book or magazine from home to read during these sessions they are more than welcome to! We encourage children to read what they enjoy!
This half term, we will be developing a range of mathematical skills including shape, symmetry, tally charts and direction. We will begin to look at daily routines and telling the time. We will also continue to develop children’s number skills.
PE will take place EVERY WEDNESDAY. Please ensure your child wears their PE kit to school every Wednesday. The children will be reminded of the school health and safety policy of no jewellery being worn during these lessons. If your child is unable to take out their earrings, please provide plasters in their bag. This term, we will be focusing on spacial awareness, team games and simple ball skills.
