Welcome to Willow Class!
We have had a brilliant start to Reception and are enjoying exploring lots of different things in our classroom! In Willow Class we have a role play area, creative space, maths area, small world area, reading corner and lots more things to play with. We are very excited to start our phonics, maths and writing work and are looking forward to all the exciting topics we will be doing each term. In Willow Class we love to read stories together and play lots of games with each other, we also love going outside to The Den and exploring all of the amazing things we can play with!
What we are learning about
Autumn Term 1 - Who am I?
Our homework in Reception is linked to our current topic and you will have received a topic overview and suggestions of homework earlier in the term. The suggestions given will link in with what we are learning in the classroom and will help to consolidate your child’s learning, however we would value any other learning your child does at home. We would encourage you to go with your child’s interests when they are learning at home and use play as a means to learn. There is huge value in playing together as you can create opportunities for turn taking, number skills, speaking and listening…the list is endless! Sometimes we will send home extra paper based homework such as Phonics which we would ask for you to do together. Your child will also come home with a reading book and a library book. The reading book is to share together, encouraging your child to talk about what is happening and join in with some words if they can read them. Library books are chosen by the child for you to read to them at home. Any reading can be recorded in your child’s reading record. There are also some book based challenges at the front to do too. We do not have a homework book in Reception but instead would love to see photos or videos of what your child has been doing at home; these can be sent to email@example.com. Alternatively if your child has created some art or a model, they are welcome to bring it in to show us.
