Reception 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Reception with Mrs Williams and Miss McIntosh
Throughout our school, we promote a love of reading. Books are a huge part of our curriculum and we encourage all children to develop a love for reading and for them to feel equipped as a reader. This is why, the expectation for reading at home is to read and sign children's reading records five times a week, we'd love for every child to read every night!
Reception children will bring home a book every week, linked to their phonics, to celebrate their reading. We want this to be a lovely and enjoyable experience, to support this we will always make sure children have read the book three times in school before bringing it home.
Chidlren will also bring home a chosen book to enjoy with you. They will not be able to read this book independently, this is an opportinty for you to share a book together. Your signatures in reading records can be a combination of phonics books and shared books.
Please make sure that children come to school with their book bags every day. They should always have their reading record with them too. From the second week in school, children will be working on phonics every day. We follow Little Wandle, Letters and Sounds revised, you can find more information on our phoncis page and information on how we teach each phoneme on the 'Phonics for Parents' page. Please contact Mrs Williams or Miss McIntosh if you have any further questions or concerns about phonics and reading.
PE day is a Friday. PE kits should be worn on your child’s PE days. PE Kit is white t-shirt, navy blue or black tracksuit bottoms (no logos) and school jumper or plain hoodie.
