Blue

This is a very unusual time for us all and the most important thing is keeping safe and well.

We appreciate that the thought of educating your children, yourselves at home can be daunting. However, in these circumstances, please remember: a home filled with positivity, love and laughter will be the best medicine!

 

Please use the opportunity of working at home to develop independence, perseverance, problem solving skills and creativity. Children will love the opportunity to show you what they are capable of as they work through the activities. Remember, the most important thing is for children to enjoy their learning and have fun!

Below you will find weekly planned activities for your children to complete. I have entitled them with the week commencing date. 

Please don't forget to email photographs of your children completing some fabulous learning at home to  hw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk

Take care and enjoy this time together with your loved ones.

Reception Baseline- information for parents

Welcome to Reception Blue!

 

In Early Years, it is through our play that we learn all we need to know. Early Years education is a vital part in your child’s development to ensure they are developing in a safe, secure and happy environment. Our children are given opportunities to investigate and explore a vast range of activities and experiences and are encouraged to develop their independency.

 

Reception follow the Early Years curriculum which is split into seven areas of learning.

 

There are 3 prime areas of learning:

- Personal, Social and Emotional Development 

- Communication and Language

- Physical Development 

 

There are four specific areas of learning:

- Literacy

- Mathematics

- Understanding the world

- Expressive arts and design 

 

We teach these areas through a balance of focused tasks with an adult and through structured play within the areas of the classroom and outdoor area, which are enhanced with activities relating to our topic and the children’s interest.

Class Information 

 

Please can you ensure that your child brings their book bag to school each day and their home reading book and diary. We listen to your child read at varied times throughout the week and our guided reading sessions are also documented in their diary. Therefore it is essential that they have it in school. We love to read comments in your child's reading diary, please feel free to document other books you like to share together (it doesn't have to be used soley for the home/school reading book). 

 

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday (both outdoors, whatever the weather). Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and all items of clothing are labelled with their name. 

 

Homework is handed out every Friday to be completed and returned the following Wednesday. If you need support with homework or you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.


Our library day is Friday, please ensure your child has their library book in school in order to change it.

 

Please check our class notice board regularly for updates and school information.

We ALL play outside whatever the weather. Please ensure your child has suitable outdoor clothing in school at all times.
