Welcome to Reception at Alexandra Primary School and the start of your child’s full time schooling. We hope that you had a relaxing summer with your family. This half-term we are focusing on the topic “I am Unique.” During this topic we will be learning all about ourselves, our families, our cultures and our celebrations. At the start of the year we are encouraging your child to do things more independently, for example, put on their coat, use cutlery, peel an orange or banana, open a lunch box, and open a straw wrapper. You can practice this at home to help your child to get used to being independent.
Below you will find the curriculum overview for this half-term, which will give you an idea of what we will be covering and the skills the children will be learning. We work to meet each child's needs so the curriculum outlined will be adjusted to support or extend individual learning. We understand this term will be busy for your child as they get used to new routines and learn to do a lot of new things independently. We would like to assure you that we will support your child through this transition period and fully appreciate that for some it may be a daunting or nerve racking experience.
We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce the Reception Team: Ms Sikora; Year Group Leader and Class Teacher for Blue Class; Ms Garcia is the class teacher for Yellow class and Ms Centeno is the class teacher for Red Class. In the Early Years, good home school links are essential as they contribute to your child fulfilling their potential and being happy at school. Please feel free to email us with any enquiries at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, at this time we cannot meet with you at the class door. If it something urgent please call the school office and speak to a member of the office team.
We look forward to getting to know your child as they settle in Reception and are looking forward to having a fun, exciting and successful Autumn Term.
If you would like to offer any suggestions about this term’s topics or if you have any expertise in the areas we are covering, please let us know by sending us an email.
