Our Learning Journey

Homework.

The children will be sent their half term homework menu every Wednesday. The homework menu will have a selection of activities covering different areas of the Early Years Curriculum.

Choose one activity to complete each week.

Homework books should be returned to school on Monday morning.

Reading Books.

The children will be sent home with a reading book on Monday and Friday. Please encourage them to share the books with you, talking about the pictures and finding key words and letter sounds in the text as they develop their reading skills.

Please sign and comment in the reading record book each time you read with your child.

Please help your child to read and recognise the key words in the front of the reading record book. 

Looking for and reading signs and labels around the house and in the local area are a good way to develop reading skills.

Book bags should be returned on Monday and Friday please..

Praise Points.

Our children are regularly rewarded for their behaviours and attitudes around school each day. As the children collect points they are rewarded with certificates, merit badges and prizes at 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 praise points.

The children will be awarded praise points for a number of things; attendance, pleasing work, good manners, having the right equipment and displaying good manners to others.

There are sanctions in place for children who don't follow our school rules as outlined in the school behaviour policy.

Our Buddies.

The children have each been allocated a buddy from year 6 to help look after them over the school year. The children will share playtimes, reading activities, art work and trips with their buddies. The younger children look forward to their time with older pupils and friendships quickly blossom between the pairings.

Buddy Fun!

Star of the day.

Each day we choose a star of the day to help with classroom jobs and roles. The children have their name displayed on our star of the day board.

Star of the week.

On Friday afternoon we go to our whole school celebration assembly. Each week we choose a child or group of children that have worked particularly well over the week or have accomplished something remarkable to share their achievements with the whole school. The children are rewarded with praise points from Mrs Webb and a celebratory well done from their peers!

PE

PE for Reception will take place on Monday and Wednesday. The children need full PE kit including pumps for indoors and trainers for outdoors.

Classroom Bear.

In class we have our very own bear called Fluffy to look after each day.

Fluffy needs lots of help in class and he's always looking to see who is being a good friend.

Fluffy will be sent home with a different child each Friday.

Our bear will travel with a diary for you to fill in telling us all about your adventures together. His Brow book bag has everything you need for a fun weekend together. Spotty PJ's, his wellington boots, his school uniform and his diary to record all the fun that you have.

Please return him to Class R on Monday morning.

Fluffy's Friends. Well done for being spotted doing something special by Fluffy.

ICT - some useful websites to share with your child.
