Reception - Snowy Owls

Welcome to Snowy Owls page!

Happy New Year!

 The children have settled back into school and have already started to enjoy their new topic.

 Our new topic is called ‘What’s Hatching’ and as you will see from your curriculum page we will be learning about dinosaurs. 

You can help your child by talking to them about dinosaurs and using the computer to research information about them. This includes researching different types of dinosaurs, finding out what they ate, how they became extinct and what fossils are.

This half term we also have a book focus – Jack and the Beanstalk.

We have also began to focus and learn about our 'Number of the Week' again and are now into teen numbers. This weekly focus helps us to understand that each number has a meaning as well as a symbol.
Numberblock characters and Numicon pieces are helping us to develop our number skills even further.


We will also continue to work towards building confidence, independence and routines that will enhance your child's learning.
We enhance a language rich environment and we will be talking lots and sharing our ideas. It is important that all of our children feel safe, happy and secure in their learning environment.

We are working through the 'Golden Rules' and each week there will be a particular focus.


Don’t forget...

Child initiated learning takes place Outdoors throughout the year, regardless of weather, so please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the ever changing British weather.

Water is provided at snack time and is freely available throughout the day. Children can bring a labelled water bottle but we remind you that we are only allowed plain water because we are a ‘Healthy School’.

We politely remind you that children are not to bring personal toys into school, unless asked by a teacher.

We are friendly team so if you have any worries or would like a bit of advice please pop in and speak to one of us: Mrs Kulin, Mrs Hughes or Mrs Wood.
