Welcome to Reception Class at Great Missenden!!
The team working in Reception is Miss Collier, Miss Dale, and Miss Martin. Mrs Peters will be working with the children for handwriting and growth mindset lessons on Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoons. We will work together to provide a learning environment that is motivating, inspiring, challenging and fun for your children.
Have a look at all the wonderful learning that we get up to here in reception!! Every single day is different and we LOVE it!!!
The children are enjoying getting stuck in with this topic.
They have been digging for fossils, learning to write dinosaur names, creating fact books about their favourite dinosaurs, learning dinosaur raps, counting groups of dinosaurs, exploring with different textures and lots more fun and exciting things.
Here are some pictures of the fun we have got up to...
Spring 1&2- Dinosaurs
Just a reminder that it is so important you read with your child at home. This does not need to be the whole book every night, even just a few pages at a time will help to support your child’s progress in school. Also, reading the books more than once helps to improve their sight reading and fluency, as well as giving the children a chance to enjoy and take in the different stories. The books are changed on a Tuesday and Thursday.
Show and Tell
Show and tell continues to be a hit with all the children. Please do encourage your child to bring something in on their week, especially if they haven’t already done so. This is a great opportunity to build up their confidence when speaking in front of a group. If possible, please send in either something exciting you have been doing at home, about somewhere you have been, or connected to our topic. Please feel free to use tapestry to upload a photo which we can then use as a talk tool for your child to tell us about.
