Welcome To Reception

 

    

 

Westgate Primary School

 

       Monday 11th June 2018

 

 

Dear Parents/ Carers,

We are off on a different adventure this week but this time we are diving down deep under the sea! We will be looking at ‘Tiddler’ by Julia Donaldson, a story about a fish who tells tall tales.

 

In school this week we will be

  • Reading the Julia Donaldson story ‘Tiddler’
  • Describing fish using vocabulary such as fins and scales
  • Making up stories about why Tiddler was late
  • Looking at place value- what each digit in a number stands for
  • Recapping our maths skills ready for Year one
  • Practising for sports day

 

At home you could

  • Talk about the sea as a habitat and list creatures who live there
  • Recap the story of ‘Tiddler’
  • Talk about different excuses as to why Tiddler was late
  • Practise some maths skills such as number recognition, ordering numbers, addition and subtraction

 

For your outdoor homework this week you could take a trip to the beach

Over the next few weeks we will be practising for our Sports Day. The day itself will be held on Wednesday 4th July at 1pm, weather permitting. Children will participate in several events working as a team. The children will be put into a team, which will be their sports day team for their entire career at Westgate. On the day children will be asked to wear a colour to represent their team. These are Cobras – green, Lions - yellow, Dragons – red and Sharks – blue. We will let you know what team your child has been allocated to in due course.

Our writers of the week this week are AJ Mount, Mia Savannah Coulton and Sapphire Hargreaves. Well done to you, keep up the good work.

Please make sure you return your slip and money for the trip as soon as possible.

Thank you for all your support and please always feel free to pop in if you have any questions or queries.

Dear Parents/ Carers,

In school this week we will be

 

  • Looking at the Julia Donaldson story ‘Tiddler’ again
  • Making Wanted posters for Tiddler when he goes missing
  • Practising our ‘Beat That’ for Maths
  • Recapping our maths skills ready for year one such as ordering numbers, days of the week and naming 2d and 3d shapes
  • Writing fishy fact files

 

 At home you could

 

  • Practise your ‘Beat That’ ‘s
  • Talk about the days of the week and the names of 2d and 3d shapes

As Sports Day is quickly approaching please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school, so they can take part in the practices taking place during PE lessons. A letter should be coming home this week to inform you which team your child is in for Sports Day. They will need to wear this colour on Sports Day. Keep your eyes open for the letter!

For your outdoor homework this week you could take use natural objects such as sticks and leaves to make teen numbers.
