Welcome to the 

Foundation Stage 

 

Mrs Heap and Mrs Heeley are the class teachers. Mrs Heap teaches every day apart from Wednesday and Friday afternoons when Mrs Heeley will teach. Miss Burton is the teaching assistant and in class every day.

This term our topic is called ‘Ourselves’. We will be learning about ourselves, where we live, who we live with and all aspects relating to friendships and personal care. Your child will be working on a range of practical activities planned to help them gain confidence in themselves and towards others.

In Literacy we will be primarily working on Speaking and Listening activities to enable your child to have emerging self-confidence to speak to others about wants and interests. We will be using the following texts as a stimulus: Super Me, A Brave Bear, Supertato, The Everywhere Bear, Fairy Tales, The Jolly Christmas Postman and the Christmas Story. 

In Reception and KS1 we use the Monster Phonics scheme of synthetic phonics straight away. We learn 4 / 5 sounds a week and learning how to blend them and read whole words. Please find the top 100 High Frequency Words and the Monster Phonics Graphemes attached to refer to at home. We use the Monster Phonics Reading Scheme in school and your child will be starting their reading journey. Some books will be sent home to read together to promote your children’s love of reading.

 

If children need to self isolate, remote learning will be provided each day on Google Classroom. You can find your log in stuck in your yellow reading record. Search for 'Google Classroom' in your search engine to access the remote learning for Reception children.
