Welcome back to Term 4
Can you believe we're now more than half way through your child's reception year?
'If you go into the woods...' is a really exciting topic for us where we get to maximise our outdoor learning space. We will endeavour to learn outdoors as much as possible both in and out of school. We will continue with our weekly welly walks. Thank you so much to parents and grandparents who have volunteered so far. If you are interested in joining us, please do so as we cannot continue without adult support.
We will try to take the children to the Dingle this term to have a forest school experience. More details on this will follow shortly.
To celebrate all we have learnt we would like to invite Parents/carers in for a teddy bears picnic on Thursday 28th March at 2.30pm.
Please can you all say goodbye to your child at the gate to enable us to keep the children safer and shut the doors and gates as quickly as possible. It also makes it equal for all children. A huge well done to those children are coming in independently!
We will continue to learn even more sounds during our phonics sessions this term and so it would be really beneficial for you to keep practising the sounds we have already covered as often as possible. Two really useful websites for this are www.phonicsplay.co.uk
Please continue to record all of your fantastic reading in your child's reading record. They are a very enthusiastic cohort when it comes to reading. Please record any books that you have shared and discussed with your child or read to them. If the children complete 5 full pages in their reading record each term they receive a small reward in assembly. It would be fantastic if every child could finish the term off by achieving their five page reading award.
Please do see us at the earliest convenience if you have any queries or concerns.
