Merry Christmas - love from Reception x
Welcome to the Reception Class page.
During the Spring Term we will be continuing to read and remember the 45 high frequency words. These words are to be memorised and recalled at speed. As part of your child’s reading practise with their book, please ensure you practise their set of words alongside.
Below is a video that the children enjoy with Frankie the Phoenix who helps us remember some of the tricky words. If your child is confident with reading words at speed they can try to write the words as Frankie says them.
As your child becomes more confident and competent at holding a pencil and beginning to make letter formations it is important that they practise a selection of different pencil movements to build up the correct muscles in the hand. Please see the video below for some examples of the types of patterns that you can encourage your child to draw.
One of the main areas of mathematics that children can find difficult is counting accurately. Please see the video below where Mr Starbuck demonstrates some tips for supporting counting at home with your child’s toys.
As part of Early Learning Goal (which is the end of year expectation for mathematics) is that the children can workout one more and one less of a number up to 20.
For example - What is one more that 16? What is one less that 15?
By introducing these words (more & less) into your child’s play at home will help continue the types of mathematical language that we use during their time in school.
As part of our Read, Write, Inc approach we used at St Annes we are focused on the children beginning to blend and segment words. Please see the videos below to see examples of children blending and segmenting real and nonsense words.
