 Welcome to Reception! 

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support this term and all the staff would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 In preparation for class party please could you kindly speak to our class rep (Mrs Grehan).  Thank you to all the parents that have done this we really appreciate your support. 


We are continuing with our phonics and have sent home a small book either red or purple with the sounds in we have sent home the last set this term. Please can you help us to support the practice of letter writing through cursive handwriting ready for year 2. In phonics and will also be securing all of the letters from A-Z both their phonemes (sounds) and their letter names as well as some digraphs (2 letters 1 sound).  We have also begun to learn a new set of tricky words. 


We have also sent home the tricky words we would like you to continue to practice to write and read. You can do this by highlighting all the words in the newspaper or creating several copies and playing snap.  Please note that we will change books again after the holidays and have sent home 2 books on Monday 17th December. 




 We are looking at numbers on the number line and 2d and 3d shapes before Christmas.
