Developmental Movement Play - Presentation for parents

 

This week's learning...

Over the last couple of weeks, the children have been enjoyed learning about castles and knights. Using the information they have learned about castles they wrote a non fiction text map.

 

In maths the children have been learning about symmetry, they all tried really hard to draw a symmetrical pattern on a shield.

 

The children have been reflecting on the year in Reception, talking about the work they have enjoyed and areas of their learning that they would like to improve next year.

 

 

The children are having lots of fun digging in our special 'muddy' digging area at COOL Time. If your child would like to do this without the possibility of muddy, soggy shoes, please feel free to send wellies into school in a named carrier bag. Thank you!

 

 

Don't forget to come in and share your children's Learning Journeys on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons!

Phonics and Reading:

 

To help you to support your child's fantastic phonic and reading development at home, we have put together a group of video clips to give you some guidance.  It focuses on the importance of sharing stories together at home, as well as how you can support your child when beginning to blend sounds together.  We hope this helps!

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/sound-pronunciation-guide/ - a guide to how to say the 'pure' sounds that we teach at school.  No more 'muh' for 'm'!

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-teaching-sound-blending/ - how to use the sounds your child knows to 'blend' and read.

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-preparing-teach-reading-fred-games/ - games that you can play with your child that will help them prepare to read!

 

Wish your child would say more than "nothing" when you ask about their day? Try using these sneaky questions when you chat to them (borrowed from a parenting blog...too good not to share!).
