In Reception we have 3 classes which are RB (Mr Brightside), RK (Mrs King) and RDT (Mrs Davies, Mrs Tyrrell). If you have any concerns please feel free to speak to any member of staff.
At Templars we teach phonics and Maths daily. In our phonics this half term we have put the children into new groups where we will be focusing on developing your child's phonics skill at their level. During our Read Write Inc sessions we will continue to practice reading and writing phonemes, words and simple sentences. In Maths we will be learning all about Numbers and the number system.
Supporting your child with phonics
You can support your child at home by practicing reading with them daily. Share stories at home with your child to develop their interest in reading and story language.
Supporting your child with maths
Go on Number hunts, point to numbers everywhere, count everything. For example how many stairs you climb, steps to the kitchen, forks at the table, people in your house etc.
Look out for 2D and 3D shapes in the environment and encourage your child to describe what they can see. Use simple addition and subtraction at home for example when setting the table "I have 2 forks and 2 knives, how many do I have altogether?"
Share these shape songs with your child:
