parents weekly update 21.9.17Welcome to Gold class!
Gold Class is a Reception class of up to 30 pupils. Our teachers are Mrs Kamanyire and Mrs Moss and our Teaching Assistant is Chara.
We have made a lovely start to our first term at school. We are already making new friends and learning all about our classroom and its different areas. This half term we are building on routines and becoming familiar with the expectations of being in Reception class.
We learn through play both inside and out. We have enjoyed exploring our new learning environments, settling the dolls into their new home in the small world play area and putting our work on display.
The topic for this half term is Marvellous Me. We are getting to know each other by sharing information about ourselves and our family. We will also be investigating what our five senses are.
Daily whole class phonics sessions will commence, following the Letters and Sounds programme. Teachers will invite parents to attend a phonics/reading workshop in the near future to find out more.
P.E. lessons will take place on Wednesday afternoons, alternating indoor and outdoor (depending on the weather).
Elvis the Elephant is a very important member of Gold Class. He visits the children at weekends and records his adventures in a diary. Elvis loves sharing and reading books. Why not read your favourite book to Elvis and tell us about it on Monday when he returns to school.
