Thank you

Welcome to Miss Cullen’s Reception Class

 

There are 24 amazing children in this class, everyone different but equally important and special!

The class is supported by Mrs Marques.

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.

The main areas are:

Personal, Social and Emotional development, Communication and Language,  Numeracy, Literacy, Understanding the World, Art and

Physical development.

Prayers the children say in class:

 

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

 

Grace before meals

 

Bless us Oh Lord, as we sit together,

Bless the food we eat today,

Bless the hands that made the food,

Bless us Oh Lord,

Amen.

 

Home time prayer

 

God our Father, I come to say, thank you for your love today.

Thank you for me family and all the friends you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night and in the morning send your light. Amen.

 

 

Religious Education

 

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.

 

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.

Thanks!

Reminders

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

Play Dough Fun

 

We have play dough disco. This is exercise for the fingers to help improve fine motor control and gross motor skills.

 

Fine motor control is developed through pinching, poking, rolling and squeezing.

 

If you would like to have a go at home, have a go with these ideas:

 

* roll it into a ball

* roll it into a sausage

* squeeze it

* poke it

* flatten it

* pinch it
