Welcome to Miss Cullen’s Reception Class
There are 25 amazing children in this class, everyone different but equally important and special!
I am very proud of the children for settling in the way they have and for the parents being so supportive and encouraging.
In reception we are guided by the EYFS learning goals.
Please use the link below to give you more information on the EYFS goals.
Autumn Term 1
The topic we will be learning about is ‘Ourselves’.
The children will be talking about why they are special and how everyone is different but special in a unique way. We are learning to draw ourselves and other people, focusing on body parts – where they are for and the names.
The School Day
It is very important that the letters and numbers are written correctly - the right formation is key for the future.
It is very important that your child is in school every day and we advise that you contact the school office if your child is absent for any reason, and that holidays are during school holiday time.
At home it would be very useful for the children to practise changing their own clothes, using a knife and fork and writing their name.
Label clothes and PE kits (navy blue shorts, white t shirt, black plimsolls, spare underwear and socks)
Book bags - check them daily
Children will be taught to read through phonics - learn letter sounds
Snacks- a small piece of fruit only should be sent in a labelled box for morning playtime. In the afternoons children will be given free fruit from school (if you could take off the skin of an orange this would greatly help your child)
Tuck shop- Tuesdays and Thursdays 20p, if required
In class we have been learning how to do the Sign of the Cross and The Hail Mary.
We have also been learning a lunch time and home time prayer - thanking God for the lovely food, friends and family that we have everyday.
Topics that we will be looking at:
Myself -God knows and loves each one
Welcome - Baptism: a welcome into God's Family
Birthday - Looking forward to Jesus' Birthday.
It would be wonderful if you could talk to your child about the different topics that we will be doing in class.
A time to thank God for all the wonderful things in our world.
Talk to your child about how lucky we are to have food and how we can give food to charity to share with people who are less fortunate than us.
