We have had a busy week in Reception and are back in full swing of learning! 

Phonics: This week have have learnt the digraphs oo (scoop with a spoon), ur, ar, or. I have uploaded videos to dojo to help practice these sounds at home. There is also sounds mats that can be used to revise the sounds and you could even play a fun game with these! Books have been assigned on Oxford Owl that relate to the sounds we have learnt so far. Children should be reading their book given in their reading folder every day (morning or evening!). Repetition is so important to develop reading fluency and comprehension. 

Please continue to support your child with these at home. There are many ideas of games and activities online :) 

Maths: This week we focused on counting up to 8. We represented numbers up to 8 in many different ways. We learnt that even though some objects are different sizes and colours they still represent a number (for example there was 7 different sized spots on the butterfly still represents 7 as a number.)

Topic: We have been talking and writing all about superheros. We read lots of books relating to this theme. Our favourite book was 'Kindness is My Super Power'! 

The homework is attached below. Please complete as much as you can and return it next Wednesday. 

 

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Miss Feeney and Miss Nahar

 

 

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.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher. This can be done by emailing info@mountcarmel.ealing.sch.uk 

 

Reading Folders 

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 the document attached below). This is when they will read to their class teacher on a 1:1 basis and have their books changed.

 

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?

 

Dojo

Please see letter attached below.

 

Uniform 

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. 

 

Nessy

We will provide you with Nessy information and a Nessy login during Autumn term 1.
