Reception Sun Rays

W/C 22.01.18

We had a great week in Sunray Class investigating all about objects that float and sink. We also completed our boats that we made in teams and tested them on the water on Friday! All entries were very successful. Hopefully you will have seen the tricky word flashcards sent home last week in your child's reading record wallet. Please can you help your little one to practise reading these? See if they can use them in some independent sentence writing using their phonic knowledge. We will check how your child is progressing with the selected words each week and will change as necessary.

This week we will be using the animal facts the children researched for homework to make fact files on our favorite polar animal. We will also be having a look at ice! They're could be some animals trapped who need the children's help!

Also, thank you to all who have signed up to a parent meeting time for next week (w/c. 29.01.18). Don't worry if you haven't managed to secure a time yet, I will catch you in the week to arrange a mutually agreeable time.

NEWSFLASH!! The Sunray Showing Assembly will be taking place at 2.30pm on Friday 9th February. This is an opportunity for the children to show their loved ones all the things they have been learning about. All Parents are encouraged to attend.

Spring 1

The topic this half term is 'Let it snow!' We will be learning all about the Polar Region including the climate and the animals you would find there. Our Role play has turned into a Polar Explorers base. This topic will bring a lot of opportunity for investigative work, writing, shape, space and measure and plenty of language and communication activities.

The daily phonics groups will continue and reading books to be changed twice a week.

This web page will be updated every half term with up to date information. There will also be a short update at the top of the page each week so make sure you keep checking!


Voluntary Reception fund is £7.50 for this half term. We really appreciate your contributions.

Friday 9th february - Sunray Showing Assembly

If you would like your little one to have wellies in school for the outdoor area please send a pair in to keep on their peg.

As we now have so many entrance/exit doors we aim to have these closed and locked by 9.10am and 3.30pm each day. It would help us greatly if you could support us by leaving the school building by these times each day - to ensure the safety of all children during the school day and whilst at after school club/activities.

You can contact me on our dedicated email address for any queries - receptionoldfieldbrow@yahoo.co.uk.

INDOOR PE KIT should be kept in school throughout the half term to be taken home for washing during the holidays.

Please make sure all items of UNIFORM and PE KIT are labelled clearly with your child's name.

It is also a good idea to regularly check your child’s hair for signs of HEADLICE - if you do find any please inform myself or Mrs Smith Burnand and we will send a letter home.

Learning Goals
Our topic this half term is 'Let it snow' Please see the E-bag for this half terms learning objectives.

Mrs Moody will be coming into class every Thursday morning to do guided writing with the class.

The children will be getting used to using the PC's and smartboard at school. They will spend some time playing on the 'busy things' website. This website is fantastic as it covers many areas of learning in the Foundation Stage and the children love it! If you would like your child to access the site whilst at home the login details are:-

Library books that your children have chosen from the class library will be sent home to be read with you on a Monday. Please remember to return these the following Monday so your child can have a new one. We will also send home a reading record after half term so you can comment on whether your child enjoyed the book and if there are any other books that you may have read at home. Please make sure you make a comment in the reading record each time your child brings a book home so we know it has been read and they can take home a different book.

Homework books will be sent home every Wednesday and should be returned on Monday. The tasks set will either be creative, practical, a discussion or something that needs to be recorded in your child’s book. Homework is given to build on your child’s development, giving you an idea of what we have been learning about in the classroom and gives opportunity for you to have fun engaging in your child’s learning.

Thank you for your support.
