Welcome to Year R
Hello and welcome to Kingsnorth! We hope you are all ready to start your first term of Recpetion. Please note that the week commencing 10th September the Bees and Butterflies are in from 8:45 until 12:45. The following week (week commencing 17th September) the children will be in school full time 8:45 until 3:15.
We will also be having a photographer from the KM paper in on Tuesday 11th September to take the 'First Class' photo for both classes.
Our topic for this term will be 'What Happened once upon a time?'. Each week we will be focusing on a different fairy tale and carrying out a range of activities for the following:
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
- The Three Little Pigs.
- Little Red Riding Hood.
- The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
- Jack and the Beanstalk.
- The Enormous Turnip.
If you have any fairy tales or alternative fairy tales at home please feel free to bring them in and we will read them to the class.
At Kingsnorth we use the programme Read, Write, Inc to teach phonics. The children will be introduced to a sound a day and will have opportunities to practise taught sounds throughout the day. We will also be sending these sounds home for you to practise with your child.
This term we will be holding a workshop for parents at school. This is an opportunity for you to come and see just how Phonics is taught at Kingsnorth. We will let you know as soon as this date is in the diary.
This term we will be practising our numbers to ten. We will be ordering them, as well as learning how to write them. We will be practising counting forwards and backwards from any number. We will be comparing numbers using words such as ‘more than’ and ‘less than’
We will also be looking at 2D and 3D shapes and ordering and comparing objects by length.
We will be having weekly P.E sessions. Our topic for this term is All About Me. We will be exploring different ways of moving, learning how to jump off equipment safely and learning to control objects through different movements. P.E will be on a Mondy for RP (Bees) and a Tuesday for RG (Butterflies). Please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school (house t-shirt, shorts and plimsols).
Could we please ask to make sure all your child's uniform is named. This is to ensure we can reunite any lost uniform to the right child.
Please check back throughout the term as will be uploading images to show you all the learning we have done this term.
Please feel free to contact us if needed to discuss any concerns or worries either: write a note in your child's reading record, speak to us on the door or alternatively send us an email.
