Sycamore Class (Reception) - Miss Chapman

Welcome to the first term at Tylers Green First School.  Starting school is an exciting time for children and their parents but it can also be a worrying time, particularly in the current climate.  We spend much of this term getting to know each other before thinking about our ‘next steps’.  We have a slightly longer induction period this year to ease the children into school more gradually after missing part of last year at nursery.  This enables us to get to know the children on a more individual basis and allows us to get to know you, their parents, which is really important to us as we will be working closely with you over the coming year.    

Children typically make lots of progress during the Reception year – we will learn to read and write as well as count, add and subtract and learn lots about the world around us.  We plan our curriculum based on the childrens interests so it changes every year.  Already we know that we have lots of dinosaur and car enthusiasts but Paw Patrol continues to be popular.  I’m sure we will hear about lots more interests over the coming weeks.  The Reception year is a busy year but, hopefully, a really fun one for your child (and you). 

We do encourage the children to be as independent as possible and we will be practicing doing things for ourselves. Parents can support this by encouraging their child to practice how to put on wellies and shoes, zip up coats and turn sleeves the right way through and to use the toilet and wash their hands independently. We will also be practicing how to write our names using correct letter formation. 

This is our first term at 'Big School' and it is important that children feel happy and secure. Please do come and speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions or queries.
