Reception 2016 - 2017

Miss Caldwell


Hello and Welcome to Reception's class page. 

The Reception teaching team are Miss Caldwell (Class Teacher) and Mrs Marekendale (Teaching assistant) and Miss Carr (Teaching assistant).

This half term we have worked really hard. We have studied the text 'How to Grow a Dinosaur'. We have produced some wonderful writing in relation to this. We have written setences about the characters, speech bubbles for the dinosaurs and dialogue between characters in the story. We decided to grow things in school. We have grown pea shoots and sunflowers. We thought it would be nice to send a sunflower to each class in school. We hope they have looked after them as much as we have with ours. Our first text next half term (Summer 1) will be Christophers Caterpillars. We have lots of fun things planned so watch this space! 

In maths, we have done lots of work on addition and subtraction. we have done this through the use of numicon and ten frames. We will continue this into next half term. We will also do more on number recognition to 20, 3D shape and weight.

We have introduced a new challenge system in our class. Each week we have four challenges to complete. If we all complete our challenges we get a treat on Friday afternoon. So far we have made toast, had dvd afternoons and played outside on the infant fun trail. Next half term (Summer 1) we will have to complete five challenges a week. Some of these challenges will be set outdoor, so lets hope the sunshine continues! 

We have also set some home challenges to do. Please keep doing these when they are sent home. 

PE will continue next half term so please remember your kit! Please label your kit and pumps to confuse any mix up when getting changed.

Many thanks for your continuing support!

Miss Caldwell, Mrs Markendale and Mrs Carr.
