Welcome to Reception

Our EYFS Lead is Miss Demiray
(This page will be updated every Friday)
This week in Maths we have been looking at quantities more and fewer. The children were able to understand this concept really well this week. We have introduced the children to the sounds e,r,u, and the diagraph ck. The children have began to recognise these sounds in books and in the school environment which is fantastic. We have been practising labelling our drawings and writing CVC words(eg cup, dog, nap).
As the weather is getting colder, please encourage your child to independently put their jumpers/ coats on and do their own zip up as it really helps for smooth transitions before/after outdoor play.
Please try and remember which day your child's reading day is. The list is outside each classroom and if you scroll down below you will see each class list also.
Next week we will be learning about the sacrament of BAPTISM. Please bring in a photo of your child's Baptism if you have one!
Have a great weekend,
Miss Feeney & Miss Ellison
Every Friday we will update this page informing you of any key information or any fun activities we have completed in school. We will also set home learning every Friday and ask it to be completed by the following Wednesday. We will not set home learning just yet as it's important for the children to feel settled in class first, and we are very much aware they may be tired for the first few weeks. We will update you on the date soon.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or your child's class teacher. This can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We have an exciting year planned ahead and hope your child enjoys every moment as they start their learning journey here at Mount Carmel.
All the best,
Miss Demiray : )
Each week your child will receive one reading scheme book and one book your child has chosen themselves. Your child has been put into a reading group for a specific day (please see document attached below). This is when they will read to their class teacher on a 1:1 basis and have their books changed.
This will begin on W/C 20.9.21
Please note your child's reading folder should ONLY be brought back into school on their designated reading day. Please could we ask for you to also leave a comment in their yellow reading records so we know how they got on with the book at home.
Please see letter attached below.
Your child may wear the summer uniform up until October half term. If the weather is hot, we ask you to provide your child with a Mount Carmel sun hat and put any sun cream on before coming to school (we do not allow sun cream to come into school).
After half term, we ask children to come to school in full winter uniform. There is more information under 'uniforms' on our webpage. Please ensure you send your child into school with a plastic water bottle (no glass ones please) filled with fresh water each day.
We will provide you with Nessy information and a Nessy login during Autumn term 1.
