Class Teacher - Hi everyone, I am your Reception teacher

Welcome to your first year at the Weaver!
 
To keep our learning fun we will be covering the following topics during your time in Reception.
 
Ourselves
Festivals and Celebrations
Superheroes 
Traditional Tales
Transport
Mini-beasts
 
What do we already know?
The first three weeks in school are focussed on getting to know each other, settling into new routines and becoming familiar with our environment. During this time the Reception team will do some baseline assessments to see what the children already know, this will help us to plan for the teaching which will follow. 
 
Reading
Your child will have been sent home with a pink level reading book. Enjoy sharing the book with your child. Knowing the letter sounds and having phonic knowledge at this stage is not important, talk about the pictures, make predictions and enjoy retelling the story. Each week we will aim to read 1:1 with your child 2 or 3 times. They will have their books changed regularly. Please ensure they are in school every day.
 
It is also important to share their own choice in stories too. Reading is the foundation for everything that we do. Developing a love of books early on will reap huge benefits as your child progresses through the year groups. My favourite saying...
 'There is no app to replace your lap' 
Cuddles and stories every night create special bonds. Ensure you give your child time to talk about their day, their wishes and dreams!
 
Phonics
We teach phonics daily. Your child will also bring home a pot containing some flash card words. These should be practised regularly at home and brought into school daily with the reading diary and book.
 
P.E.
Our P.E. sessions will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please come to school wearing your kit. Make sure your child has jogging bottoms and a hoody for the cooler weather as we intend to be outdoors as much as is possible!
 
Snacks, lunches and water bottles.
Please make sure you send a named water bottle to school every day. A snack should be provided for morning break (It must NOT contain nuts) At Afternoon break we will provide fruit. All of the children are eligible for a free school lunch but we understand that you may prefer to have a lunch from home. Please ensure lunch boxes are named.
 
Communication
Chatting to parents at the door is unfortunately very difficult this year. If anything is urgent please do not hesitate to contact the school office by telephone or email. I will respond to my emails at my earliest opportunity. claire.greaves@weaver.cheshire.sch.uk. A note in the diary is also a good option, again we aim to reply as soon as possible.
 
The Twitter account for Reception class 2020-2021 is now active. Please sign up to see notes, messages and photos of our time in class!
