Reception - Bees & Butterflies

Welcome to Reception!

Bees and Butterflies

 

Links between home and school, alongside a positive working relationship between staff and families, can make a hugely positive impact on your child’s progress.

 

Please work with us to give your child the very best start in life.

 

The two Foundation 2 teachers for the 2016-2017 academic year are:

 

  • Mrs Patel (Butterflies)
  • Mrs Khakhar (Bees)

Homework

 

Homework will be uploaded to this page each Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday for it to be marked.

 

Homework is an important part of school life but it should not be taking over life out of school!

 

At Krishna Avanti Primary School we expect the children to come to school and work hard. As long as they do that they should be able to go home and do a little homework each week (up to one hour) and enjoy being a child – playing and learning other things through play! Some children do of course really enjoy writing and doing mathematics and other ‘academic’ things and in these instances, they may wish to spend hours and hours studying and doing homework. In Foundation 2 it would be great for the children to do a little of the work each day. 

 

If your child has worked hard at school, any homework given that takes more than one hour may be left (if you so wish). In addition to the homework, children will have spellings to learn and books to share.

 

Reading

 

Reading books will be changed weekly. Please ensure that your child's reading record is signed in order for their books to be changed.  Reading books still need to be brought in to school everyday!

PE  takes place on Fridays and Yoga takes place on Thursdays. It is important that ear-rings are removed on these days.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT PE KITS ARE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY MORNING AND TAKEN HOME ON THURSDAY EVENING. OUR TIMETABLE IS NOT SET IN STONE AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION CAN CHANGE AT SHORT NOTICE.
Butterflies class assembly is on Wednesday 29th March. Your child will bring home some lines to learn tomorrow. Please practise them over the weekend.

Phase 2 teaching blending

This is a video clip from the DfES Letters and Sounds Programme (2007) used to teach children to read in many schools. This clip shows children learning how to blend sounds to make CVC words. Sound buttons are shown (dots under each phoneme) to help children discriminate between the individual sounds.

Phonic songs-listen to the songs and learn your sounds
