 Reception Newsletter June 2020



Emma (Mrs Brayshaw), Mandy (Miss Ward), Emma (Miss Nicholson) Martin (Mr Fuller), Rena (Mrs Landell) and Harvinder (Miss Kaur) hope you all had a fantastic half term.  A big thank for all the home learning observations submitted to Tapestry before half term! We really appreciated all your hard work and support for the children’s learning. It is so important that even during this unprecedented time that children are still learning and progressing as much as possible.

This half term our main topic is Eco-Warriors. In English the children will be focusing on the story The Messy Magpie. Its all about recycling and what rubbish can do to an area of natural beauty. The magpie collects all the rubbish that the humans leave, then places it all over the forest but sees what the damage it is causing to the environment and nature. From this the children will be looking at how the Magpie feels at different stages of the story and how we feel as humans looking at what damage rubbish can do to our world. The children will also be creating their own posters and information booklets on why it is important to recycle.

As part of investigation Fridays the children will be looking at the impact rubbish such as plastic is having an impact on the oceans, local environment and the rest of the world such as rainforests. The children will be making posters to encourage people to recycle and they will be also making different things out of used rubbish that we can recycle. In terms of oceans and rainforests the children will be watching videos looking at the devastation impact plastic and other non-recyclable waste is having on the animals and environment. They will be learning about small changes that they can do whilst out shopping or in their home which can help to stop this.

Due to COVID-19 please find a letter attached in Files to download named: Daily routine and online resources.  That will give you some ideas on our daily routine and some online resources to help to support your child at home. We hope you remain safe during this period of uncertainty and look after each other.


Home Learning and Tapestry

A quick reminder- Each day there will be a piece of work uploaded by the teachers onto the MEMO area on Tapestry. You can only access this through the website and not the app! There will be a phonics, maths and literacy lesson and on Friday’s only there will be an investigation lesson! Please complete these lessons with your child daily and upload the tasks to Tapestry for your class teacher to view. Also, please do not forget to read with your child at least once a day even if it something practical like a recipe or a comic. It is so important that the children maintain their reading skills as much as possible during this time.

There are still some children that have not submitted any work yet so please if you have any questions or you are struggling to access the learning please get in contact.

We are all happy to help!
