The Grove Infant and Nursery School

Achieving our potential in our creative learning community


Reception Parent Information Meeting notes - 17th September 2018

Welcome to Reception!

We have 3 Reception classes at The Grove; Chestnut, Lime and Sycamore. The teachers are Miss George, Miss McDermid, and Mrs Norton.

Welcome to the Reception blog.  Each week we will update our page to share with you some of our learning and remind you of upcoming events.  The children help write the blog and we often share photos too.



Welcome to our first blog!  The children are becoming very settled and flourished in their first full week at school - well done to all.  We've had a busy few weeks getting to know the children and a little about their families.  We have created self-portraits and drew pictures of our families. We have been learning about when and how to wash our hands (please encourage) and have learnt the sounds 's,a,t,p,i,n'.  We have begun to use them to blend simple words, such as 'it, in, sat, tap'.  Please could each child bring in a family photograph which can be displayed in the classroom?  We would like to use them to personalise our role play areas and ensure it is personal to the children. 


Next week we will be exploring the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell.  In Maths we will be learning to recognise numbers in different forms, such as Numicon, on a dice and with objects.  We will be learning how to get dressed for PE and continuing to grow our independence.  We hope to send home word ladders/reading books over the next few weeks - please be patient, this takes a little time. 


Have a restful weekend.  Here's a few photos of the last few weeks...
