Welcome to Richardson Endowed Primary School

Class R

Letters and Sounds - information for grown ups

Today, the children and I looked at the characters in the Oxford Reading Tree books, we will meet them lots in our reading books:

ORT characters

Please look below for the videos that I mentioned in your child's reading diary today. I have also attached a downloadable booklet informing you about the progression in Letters and Sounds - usually in Class R children work on phase 2, 3 and 4 as the year progresses.  Letters and Sounds is the programme we use to teach your child synthetic phonics which helps your child to read and spell. Please, if you have any questions, contact us through the agreed channels - thank you.

Our Tree (well bush) of Hope

In our Reception outdoor zone we have a beautiful bush which grows throughout the different seasons.  We have decorated it with our rainbow handprints.  This is our Tree of Hope.  Each class in school has a Tree of Hope in their classroom as part of our reconnection programme.  We will enjoy looking at ours each day.

Welcome to our new children starting in Class R!

What a gorgeous week in Class R!  

This week we welcomed our brand new starters to come and look at their brand new learning space and have chance to meet some of the special adults at our school.  A small group came each day to meet Mrs Evans and myself, they also met Mrs Mason (Our Headteacher), Mrs Straw (our teaching assistant), Mrs Hull (our teaching assistant) and Mrs Harrison (our mid-day supervisor).  All of the children made us so proud as they could not wait to come and find out more about their school; we chose our own very special school mouse who will join each child on their Reception journey. We made mouse hats, shared nursery rhymes, counted, drew and explored our learning zones, as well as ate our dinner in the hall and enjoyed our fruit and milk together! Phew!  

Please have a look at our slide show to see some of the fun that we had during our new adventure together at Smalley School!

 

We can't wait to see you next week children.

Have a lovely weekend in the sunshine!

All ready to EMBARK!

Welcome

This week we warmly welcome our new Class R children to EMBARK on their Smalley learning journey.

It's time for BIG school children, how exciting!  

We can't wait to see you and your lovely families.

Here are some special and important messages for you Class R, from your buddies in Year 6. I know they are all going to miss you very much as they move onto their new 'big school' in September. I'd also like to say thank you to the buddies for all you have done this year for our youngest children in school- it really makes a difference that you are there to support them in their first year at school.
