Welcome to Reception

 

Mrs Newman and Mrs Deeley and Mrs Dinnis 

 

 

This half term we will be learning in all seven areas of the curriculum through our topic 'Clothes'.

 

We will be visiting St Johns museum in Warwick this half term. We will be doing laundry as the Victorians did, collecting water, using dolly tubs and making our own soap powder!

Some of the stories we will be reading are Aliens love underpants, Mrs Lathers Laundry and Non-fiction clothes books.

The children may well come home very excited, as we have the Police visiting school wearing their uniforms.

 

Please practice with your children getting dressed in the morning and undressing for bed time. This will really help them during PE. In addition, please practice doing zips up on coats!

Please refer to the class newsletter to see what we will be learning this half term. 

 

 

 

 

Jigsaw Jenie will be helping us this term. She will be helping us

think about Dream and Goals. Your child will choose their own goal they would like to achieve and these will be sent home for you to practice with them.

 

Please continue to send me emails, to let the team know what you have been learning at home and all the exciting things you have been doing.

Dental Hygiene

In the EYFS, we teach about dental hygiene. The children learn the value of good brushing and how to use toothpaste to fight tooth decay. The Colgate Tooth Defenders help us to learn how to keep ourselves healthy and even give us our own toothbrush and toothpaste to take home!

The Tooth Defenders would like us to complete our brushing chart to make sure that we keep our teeth and gums healthy.

If you need any support for your child or any tips on keeping teeth clean, please see our documents below to help you. Also start taking your child to the dentist….it is never too early to start!

Here is a really useful document - A parents guide to What to expect in the EYFS (Early years foundation stage)
