Hello and welcome to the Acorns class
Firstly, I would like to welcome you all again to Chacewater School. We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our Reception class. This year the Acorns class will be taught by Miss Thomas and supported by Mrs White and Miss Budge.
We are in our final term - I cannot believe it and soon your child will be heading to year 1. In this term we will be continuing to work on our RWI, focusing on the set 2 and 3 sounds and reading words with these sounds in them. The children will be challenged to apply what they have learnt in their phonics lessons, and encouraged to write with numerous amounts of challenge stations and writing opportunities linked to our overarching topics. In Maths we will be looking at embedding knowledge of numbers from 1-10 and then to 20. We will be doing lots of work with visuals/resources and representing numbers in different ways.
In our afternoon sessions we will be looking at our topic ‘superheroes’. We love this topic because we have such amazing hook books to engage all children. Our main hook book this term will be ‘supertato and superworm’. The children will take part in learning inside and outside of the classroom and provision will link to the overarching themes taught each week. We will also be looking at people in the communities that help us, including doctors, nurses, police and firemen. We will also be having a visit from the local fire fighters to talk about what their job entails.
Due to COVID, we have been unable to welcome parents into the classroom on a daily basis, just like we would do normally. This therefore means that any queries or questions you have, will have to be dealt directly on drop off and picks ups, or via email: email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you should need it.
Miss Thomas and the Acorns Team.
