Reception: Astronauts

Welcome to the Astronauts class page!

Our teachers are Miss Wright, Mrs Crooks and Miss Karkach. Please feel free to speak to any of us if you have any questions.

Now that we have started learning Phonics, please ensure you practise the letter sounds with your child as much as possible. We are also learning to hear initial sounds in words as this is an important skill to have. Each day we will provide your child with the new sound that they have learnt that day. This will prepare your child for when we begin to segment and blend sounds to read words.

It is really important that your child can recognise and write their own name, so please practise this as much as possible at home.

Your child has been allocated a reading day and books will be changed on this day, so please make sure reading folders are in school.  We encourage you to read with your child every night as this will help to develop your child’s speech, broaden their vocabulary and will help them to become brilliant writers!

In Maths this year we will be learning all about number, shape, size and capacity. Please practise careful counting at home with your child and recognising numbers to 10.

We have PE on a Tuesday morning with Mrs Bembridge so make sure your child has a PE kit in school. We are trying to encourage independence so please practise putting your own clothes and socks and shoes on at home!

We are always posting what we get up to on Tapestry, so please make sure to interact with this to see what your child is doing throughout the day. It is also lovely for us to see what activities your children are getting up to at home, so please share this with us on Tapestry too!
