Reception 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Reception
With Miss Vaughan, Mrs Bristow and Mrs Williams.
A big, warm welcome to all of our children and families. We are so excited to welcome you back after half term. We hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable break and that you find this page useful. We would also like to offer our thanks and gratitude for all of the continued support during these tricky times.
Whether you are learning in school or at home, children you continue to work so hard and make us so proud. A huge well done to each and every one of you.
Here in Reception we follow a 'Narrative Immersion Curriculum.' Each term the story box gifts us a new text. As we enter story world we learn how the plot of the story unfolds and we get to know each character well, often helping the different characters to overcome problems along the way! This term our story is called 'Dear Fairy Godmother,' by Michael Rosen and Nick Sharratt. Through this text we will explore the themes 'problem solving,' 'working together' and 'helping others.' Each week a different fairy story character will write a letter asking for the Fairy Godmother's help in finding a solution to their problem. The children will be the happy helpers, working together to find solutions to the characters' problems.
The planning for this narrative can be found below in the 'files to download' section.
Reading and fostering a love of books is an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Whilst we are remote learning, your child can access online reading materials, at home, using the link that has been sent out. It is expected that your child reads these books to you. As your child's phonics skills and knowledge progress, they will be able to 'wow' you with their early reading skills.
Here at Highfield, we use an online learning journal called 'Tapestry' to record your child's learning. This will allow you to see any observations, pictures and videos that we have made of your child in the learning environment. It is used as a communication tool between school and home and so we very much encourage you to add your own observations to your child's learning journal as much as you can. We absolutely love to see what your child has been learning at home. In the current circumstances, Tapestry is our main communication tool.
