8-9-17  My First week in Reception.

Next week we will be talking to the children about what they like doing in school.  As part of our focus on speaking and listening, the children will be sharing their ideas with the rest of the class.  Therefore as part of their homework it would be extremely helpful if they could share their thoughts with you and you could jot them down.  What are their interests in school?   Do they talk about any of their new friends? 

Many thanks.

Over the holiday we would like your child to concentrate on their gross motor skills as this will have a great impact on their fine motor skills. Therefore we would like your child to visit a play area/ park and have a go at climbing, up and over climbing frames or scramble nets. Also, if they are very daring could they try the monkey bars as this is brilliant for developing upper body strength which is vital for helping your child’s ability to hold and control a pencil.
