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. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
Your children have settled in so well to life in Reception class, here at Highfield and we are very proud of each and every child as they have begun their learning journey so positively.
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 'Supertato,' by Sue Hendra. Through this text we will explore the themes 'Healthy Eating,' 'Heroes' and 'Bullying and Anti-Social Behaviour.' It is a story about a superhero who has eyes everywhere- but unfortunately there is a pea on the loose! A very, very mischeivious pea!! Has Supertato finally met his match?!! The planning for this narrative can be found below in the 'files to download' section. If you would like to share the story at home, please click on the following link:
PE is on a Tuesday. On this day, please send your child dressed in their PE kit to school. Reading and fostering a love of books is an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Your child will bring home three books a week. One book will be a library book which is to be shared between yourself and your child. The other two books will be from our reading scheme 'Big Cat Collins.' 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. Books will be sent home on a Monday and should be returned to school on a Friday.
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.
