Reception Elm

Hello and welcome to Elm class web page.

In our classroom, you will find

 

Mrs Mountney

Mrs Margrove

Mrs Ali-Shah

 

If you have any questions please feel free to speak to a member of staff at the beginning or end of the day.

In Elm class our P.E lessons are on a Wednesday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure P.E kits are in school on these days and all items are clearly labelled.

 

We use the outside area as our second classroom so please make sure the children bring suitable clothing as they will be outside whatever the weather. If possible please leave wellies (named) in school as we have a digging area, water wall and mud kitchen that the children have daily access to.

 

 

Thank you to all the parents who attended the meeting this week. A copy of the powerpoint is available below and if you have any questions please come in and speak to a member of staff.

What we are learning:

  

 

This week in phonics we will also be introducing the children to the sounds: s a t i. The children will be taught how to write each letter and how to identify them in words. The children will also be using their robot hands to orally segment and blend words independently. When the children are reading their books to you or you are out and about point out the letters we are learning and ask the children to tell you the sounds they make.

 

In Maths the children will be taking a visit to Number land! They will need to go across a number lane to enter this magical world and when they get there they will discover number houses and gardens to match! Why not ask your child to tell you all about it. The children will also be discovering how to count and match the correct numeral to each piece of numicon

 

Please ensure that children are heard to read as often as possible and their reading record books are signed and placed in the corresponding basket every morning. Many thanks for your continued support.
