Welcome to Year R!
Our start time for everyone is between 8.40am and 8.50am and we finish at 3:15pm.
We have PE on a Wednesday; please send in PE kits on a Monday and they will be sent home for washing on a Friday. Please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear such as plimsolls or trainers and that all kit is labelled with your child's name.
We will be reading with children throughout the week. The ebook for your child will be allocated every Friday. They will also come home with home reader for you to share and read with your child. Please listen to your child read their book throughout the week to help them become more confident with their reading. This will also help your child to develop their decoding and comprehension skills. Please can you write in your child's yellow reading record book to let us know how well they read.
A surprise delivery arrived in class and we think it contains items belonging to characters from traditional tales (fairy tales). We are going to explore the traditional tales and learn how story maps can help us to retell the stories. We will learn to use rich and exciting story language whilst writing our own stories. We will be thinking about the feelings and actions of the characters and discussing whether they did right or wrong.
