Welcome to Class RPH - Shirley Hughes
The journey continues...
The children continue to get accustomed to life in reception. This week we have started 'Read, Write, inc' which gives children the skills to read and write. We learn a different letter sound each day and practice blending the sounds in words. For example 'm-o-p' makes 'mop'. We learnt m,a,s,d,t this week and the children were very pleased when they realised they could read 'dad'. Next week will be looking at i, n, p,g, o. Ask your child about Fred. Please ask if you want more information.
As the weather gets colder and wetter please make sure your child has a pair of wellington boots in school and brings a coat. We access the outside area whatever the weather and not having the right clothing limits the children's choices.
Welcome to Shirley Hughes Class
Welcome to the first term of the school year. We are looking forward to meeting you and getting to know the children, including their interests, during the next few weeks. We will be talking to the children about Shirley Hughes, after whom our class is named. She is an illustrator of children's books as well as an author. We will be sharing her books so do ask your child about the stories and the class name. The children will be learning about the 'achievosaurs', a family of dinosaurs that help children identify the different ways they learn.
Your children have new faces to meet and routines find out about in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or worries please talk to any member of the class team.
Let the adventure begin!
