    From Mrs Lê & Miss Johnson

    Monday 6th July

    Hello again Reception!
     
    We have been speaking a lot about ‘Bubbles’ with the children in school last week and have put this learning into some activities for those of you who are still working at home.
     
    Keep an eye out for your school reports coming in the post this week as they also contain details of your child’s next class teacher and a special note from us!
     
    We hope you have a great week and enjoy choosing some of the activities from the menu.
     
    Love Mrs Lê and Miss Johnson

    A huge well done from both of us 🙂 

    Love Mrs Le & Miss Johnson

    Monday 15th June

    Happy Monday everyone!

    This weeks learning menu has a very WIGGLY theme! We hope you find something that you will enjoy and remember that we love to see pictures of all your learning. 🙂

    If you haven’t managed to collect your special writing jotter from the main reception at school yet there is still plenty of time. While you’re there, you could also collect a paper copy of our learning menu-do you know anyone who can’t get online? Maybe you could collect a copy for them too and post it?

    Keep up the hard work!

    Monday 8th June 

    Good Morning West View!

    Today marks the beginning of a phased return to school for some students in Y6. This will shortly be followed by Y1 and then Reception children, with more information to follow. Please do not bring your child to school if you have not spoken to a member of our leadership team to confirm your child will be attending. All social distancing measures in place depend on knowing the exact number of children and adults in school.

    In the meantime we will continue to be available online and will provide our learning menus for you to choose activities from if you wish! These are also available to collect from the main office with a small workbook to use for writing in.

    Keep going everyone. You are all amazing!

    Love Mrs Lê and Miss Johnson

    Wednesday 3rd June

    Welcome back everyone!

    We hope that you all had a lovely half term and managed to spend some time doing lots of things that you enjoy!

    Here we are in our final half term of this academic year and we can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by. Who could have predicted the different challenges that we would have to face in over the last few months?!

    We would like to thank you all for your continued support over this time and express our deepest gratitude for all of your hard work at home to support your children. As we move into this final chapter we will continue to provide learning ideas in the form of our weekly learning menus which will be uploaded to Tapestry, Facebook and also our class page on the school website. We will continue to be available over the next few weeks to provide support where needed and we would love for you to continue to share the lovely things that you get up to.

    Stay safe and keep smiling 🙂

  • PE

    PE

    PE is on a Thursday. Children need a white or school t shirt, black shorts and gym shoes or trainers.

    PE bags can be left on pegs ready for the sessions. They will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.

    Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

     

    Physical Development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

    Suggested Activities:

    • Allow your child to practice being more independent. For example, dressing themselves without help, learning to put their own coat on and fastening it up etc.
    • Play games with your child that involve taking turns e.g pair, snap, board games etc.
    • Play pretend shops using food or toys etc. from your house. Play the role of customer or shop keeper, modelling the vocabulary that these people would use in real life.
    • Do arts and craft activities that involve cutting and sticking. 
    • Make playdough together (If you Google ‘Dough Disco’ on YouTube there are lots of fun activities to do with the playdough)
    • Go on a Spring Walk – looking for signs of Spring.
    • Play outside with your child e.g throwing and catching a ball, go on a bike or a scooter ride.

     

     

     

     


  • reading book
    Reading Books

    When each child is ready, they will be allocated a reading book.

    Initially this may be a Talk About’ book with no words alongside ‘SATPIN’ sound cards that should be used to build words.
    This will progress onto a school reading book and a second ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book.

    Please ensure that all reading resources are bought to school each day.
    Levelled Books will be changed every Monday and ‘Reading for Pleasure’ books will be changed every Wednesday.

    Please attempt to read with your child a minimum of twice a week for at least 5- 10 minutes. After each read please record in your child’s reading record  in order for them to earn certificates for their hard work.

  • Tapestry

    In Early Years we record all children’s achievements on Tapestry, an online learning journal.
    Through this website/app you can see pictures and videos of the things that your child gets up to whilst in school.
    You can also upload things from home too-from an excellent attempt at homework to a day out at the park!
    Look for the logo above when downloading the app to your phone or tablet.

    If you are having problems, speak to any EY’s staff member-we are happy to help!

  • This Half Term we will be learning about …

     

     

  • Helping your child at home…

     

  • In our phonics lessons we learn the individual sounds that each letter makes when it is in a word.

    To the right are the sound mats showing the sounds that your child has been learning.
    If you want to practise these at home, checking that your child can identify the sound, that would be great.

    If you are unsure of any sounds our staff will be more than happy to help.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Another way to help is to check that your child can recognise numbers from 0-20.

    Why not question them about numbers in the environment?

     

     

     

     

    Practise some pencil control with your child by drawing shapes and patterns or writing numbers or letters.
