Reception 1 Miss Curbishley

Hello and welcome to Reception 1's page!

Hello Reception smiley

 

Welcome to our class web page. Here, you will find lots of amazing and educational resources to keep you busy whilst learning from home. 

As well as the many resources you will find to support Phonics, Maths and Topic, you will also find our weekly Home Learning Plans.

 

Below, you will also find more information about our home learning network Google Classroom, as well as a link to our EYFS Youtube Channel, which is full of stories and fun activities. 

 

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well.

We understand that you may feel worried or have questions that you may want to ask. Please do not hesitate to get in touch at lcurbishley@firs.trafford.sch.uk or through Google Classroom. 

Miss Curbishley & Mrs Dixon x 

 

 

We are so excited to see you all on your return to school on Monday 8th March. We have uploaded videos of your classroom to Google Classroom (they've had a little make-over). Here are some more changes to Reception:

 

- Every Tuesday, children should come into school wearing sports clothes (suitable for the weather). The children will wear these clothes throughout the day and so will no longer need to bring a PE kit to school

 

- Every Friday, we will upload a Home Learning Challenge onto Google Classroom. This will mean that the children no longer need to bring 'Homework' books into school. Children should not bring in a Book Bag.

 

- Please ensure that your child has a water bottle that can be kept in school (labelled).  

 

Returning to school!

Your child may be feeling lots of different emotions as they prepare to return to school on Monday 8th March. 

Here is a little read of some of the things that they may expect to find as they come into school.

It's so lovely to see your smiling faces each day on our Google Classroom page, where you will find a series of LIVE sessions as well as pre-recorded sessions. A weekly plan is uploaded to Google Classroom every Friday, detailing the amazing activities in line for the following week. You can also find these on our Class website (if you keep scrolling!)

 

Below, you will find our Google Classroom Timetable:

I just want to say a massive thank you to all parents / Carers and children for being so engaged and creative with the home learning in which we are offering on Google Classroom. You all show such a positive attitude towards this new way of learning / teaching... we are very lucky to have such a great parent partnership.

 

Here is just one of the lovely messages we have been sent from a parent, regarding our home learning:

"It's really clear how hard you are working for our kids. And we really appreciate it."

All About Phonics 

 

Here a link to a video made by Miss Curbishley, which gives you ideas on how to help support your child with phonics at home. These activities are play based and that is how we believe children learn best.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5A5FW-5Xig 

 

I understand that phonics is very complicated and the pronunciation of sounds can be quite difficult to master. The follow video is an excellent tool to help adults and children say the sounds correctly, which is crucial for reading and writing. 

 

Please contact a member of the team if you have any questions about phonics. 

How to say the sounds just like us!

 

The order of the sounds in the video are as follows...
