VIRTUAL PARENTS EVENING
Please see a letter to parents below inviting you to attend a virtual parents evening on Tuesday 29th September 2020.
Welcome to Reception 2020/21
The EYFS team (Mrs Allen, Mrs Fitzpatrick and
Miss Copperwheat) are ready for another fabulous year of learning, exploration and fun. The observant will have noticed the
change in Reception staff to the photos you received in July. Mr Wells and Mrs Weaver have been deployed in to other year groups within school and Miss Copperwheat has joined our team.
On our web page, Reception's flower, you will find curriculum information, images and comments from learning experiences in school and visits, copies of EYFS letters.
Information can also be found on our Information Board in the outdoor area underneath the canopy.
You can contact Mrs Allen on our email at:
Thank you to all children and grown ups for such a smooth start to our St Peter's year. Everyone has been so understanding and patient. By the reaction from our children during their play session visits I know we are going to have a fantastic year of fun, laughter and learning.
The 'Reception Starters 2020' webpage in the Parents Section of our school website will remain. This page, Reception flower, will focus on our children throughout their Reception year.
Now we have an understanding of the likes and interests of our children we are tailoring our learning curriculum, making it as stimulating as possible. We very much want to engage our children in learning presenting them with purposeful learning.
Due to COVID restrictions I will not be able to run after school adult sessions explaining our curriculum and Literacy, Numeracy teaching and learning. Our thinking caps are on to think of a solution for this, when we have one we'll let you know.
Learning our phonics with Letters and Sounds.
St Peter's uses the Letters and Sounds approach to help our children learn their letters enabling them to read and write.
Letters and Sounds have produced new online videos to be used at school and in the home. These short videos help children and their families to reflect on school phonics learning.
Follow the link below, to see the available letter videos. At the moment I am unable to copy and paste a live link to the site.
