Reception - Jumping Jacks & Leapfrog

Welcome to Reception:

Jumping Jacks & Leapfrog

Our Teachers are:

Leapfrog - Mrs Funnell (EYFS Leader)

Jumping Jacks - Mrs Gainfort and Mrs Kent

Our teaching assistants are :

Leapfrog - Mrs Morse 

Jumping Jacks -  Mrs Riley and Mrs Robertson 

Well done to do the new Reception children who have settled in fantastically! They seem to be coping brilliantly in the dining room and most are eating really well too. 

 

Children will need their PE kits in school by Monday: blue shorts, house colour t-shirt and trainers. When it gets colder we will still do outside PE so please include a tracksuit (trousers AND top). Girls need to keep a spare pair of socks in their PE bags for days when they are wearing tights. If you haven't managed to get hold of the correct 'house' colour t-shirt then any t-shirt will do for now. 

 

Yellow reading diaries should have come home with your children today. Please record in here the books that you share at home with your child. Regular reading with your children can help to build their vocabulary, language and literacy skills, while improving concentration, curiosity and memory.

 

You should also have had a letter regarding Friday toast days. All children have the chance to make toast, choose and spread toppings and then eat their toast. We do however require a one-off payment to help cover the costs for this and other cooking activities that take place throughout the year. 

 

We hope you all have a good weekend and the children aren't too exhausted after their first full week! 

 

Any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with one of us. 

 

Mrs Funnell, Mrs Gainfort and Mrs Kent

The Big Numbers Song

It's a numbers song for children and adults. Count from 0 to 100 and from a hundred to a trillion. This song was written and performed by A.J. Jenkins. Video by KidsTV123. Copyright 2011 A.J.Jenkins/KidsTV123: All rights reserved.

3D Shapes I Know (solid shapes song- including sphere, cylinder, cube, cone, and pyramid)

3D Shapes I Know (new pyramid version) This version includes only ONE chorus at a time, whereas the old version used to do 2 at a time. I didn't like that the old one felt too long each time. I've also included a section about "a pyramid" now.

Counting by 2s

It's a skip counting song by 2s. This is designed to help with early years numeracy and sight words for numbers. This song was written and performed by A.J. Jenkins. Video by KidsTV123. Copyright 2015 A.J.Jenkins/KidsTV123: All rights reserved.

Counting by 5s

It's a skip counting song by 5s. This is designed to help with early years numeracy and sight words for numbers. This song was written and performed by A.J. Jenkins. Video by KidsTV123. Copyright 2015 A.J.Jenkins/KidsTV123: All rights reserved.

Letters & Info.... In reception we use the Early Years Foundations Stage Statutory Curriculum to lead our long term planning. We follow the children's interests to guide how this is taught, to provide an engaging and meaningful learning experience. Please see 'A Parents' Guide to the EYFS' below.
