Welcome to Foundation

Welcome back after the summer holidays. I hope you are all refreshed and ready for the start of the academic year. I am very excited to be the teacher for your child in what is an important milestone for them. The start of school is a very exciting but also a very worrying time for children. I am confident that they will all settle well and will enjoy their time in reception.

Our topic this term is The Circus. We have lots of exciting activities planned around this. You will be informed regularly of these activities.

We will be participating in a daily phonics lesson where we will be following the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc program. This is a very structured program that will help your child to progress well. We will then be applying these skills in our reading and writing activities daily.

Our PE session is on a Monday. Please make sure your child has a complete PE kit in school that is labeled with their name. We will also do dance on a Wednesday with Ali. On A Tuesday afternoon we will be having an outdoor learning afternoon where we will be working on different skills. Please can your child bring wellington boots with them. When it turns colder they will also require gloves,a hat and a waterproof coat.

Your child will have a reading book which will be changed on a regular basis. Please read daily at home because this really helps your child to make good progress. Remember to sign their diary as a record is kept ready for our Reading Certificate assembly. Your child will occasionally receive other pieces of homework so please work with them when this happens.

I look forward to working with you this year. If you have any concerns or worries please do not hesitate to talk to me. I am always happy to help.
